Z Minus 7 Days

The countdown begins.

Since I was accepted into this unbelievable Spring Break Study Abroad opportunity, I have pored over the history of Zimbabwe, read lots of literature written by Zimbabwean authors, and studied a lot of published advice on extended air travel. Now my departure looms large a week from tomorrow, and my frame of mind turns to one of sheer excitement and adrenaline. Let the packing begin!

This map shows my travel route -- that's a lot of water to travel over!

Study Abroad Activities

We are not going to have a moment to breathe between all of these activities. After this trip, I am going to need a vacation!!

Staging Area for Packing

#No room for clothes

I have at least three pages listing the necessities and the anti-this-n-that creams and goos, mosquito and sun protection -- I do not think there's space left for my toothbrush.

Flight Path

Should have picked a window seat!

Looks like my flight is taking a northern path over Greenland and Europe. A little less ocean underneath is not a bad thing for me!
