Are you guys getting sick of hearing about how excited Kayla, Alicia, and I are to go to Africa?
The closer we get to May (which is pretty much just around the corner!) and the more plans we make the more it kicks in that we are actually going. We have all gotten our vaccines, I have sent off for my passport, we have been talking with Jessica of Noonday Collection, emailing Jennifer in Africa, and we are starting to put together our itinerary…which seems a little overwhelming right now.
When we were first asked if we wanted to go on this trip we thought we were only going for 10 days but after talking with Jennifer (our coordinator in Africa who is currently working with the women going through the sewing program) we are now looking at going for 14 days, TWO WHOLE WEEKS. I am obviously excited about the extended trip but also a little nervous for my Platinum girls, I hope they can manage without me.
Last night the three of us stayed to pack up your orders from the last upload. We also got to talk about the things we are excited about and the things that we are most nervous about. I am definitely most worried about the food…being the most picky vegetarian in the world (no joke, ask Carrie) I don’t know what I am going to eat! I plan on packing a lot of Pop-tarts and peanut butter crackers in my suitcase.
We may have also discussed that an “Our Trip” upload will be coming up very soon…
You may already know this, but Alicia and I LOVE elephants…we both have quite the collection and I have been secretly hoping that we spot one while we are there. And if we were crazy lucky would even get to ride one. Going to Africa has been a dream of mine forever and riding an elephant is also on my list of things to do. So, I am keeping my fingers crossed that my elephant dreams come true.
That’s all I have for now…I know, it was a little all over the place but thanks for reading!
