Well folks… we have less than 2 weeks until we leave. It’s crazy that it’s January, almost 70 degrees outside in Texas and that it is about time for us to start this journey. There’s not much left to do at this point except make one last Amazon order, pick the final clothes we want to take on the trip and finish saying our goodbyes.
We’re at the phase now that it’s really sinking in. We’ve tested packing our backpacks (most of it fit). We’ve spent weekends and weeks with friends and said tearful goodbyes. We’ve had other friends express interest in meeting us in various locations (WE WOULD LOVE THIS!) We’re done with online classes for Scuba certification and go to start the real classes on Wednesday. We’ve booked a few more flights and accommodations for February. We exchange messages with each other regularly where we freak out that we are really doing this.
In 12 days we leave for San Francisco. We have only 17 hours in the city, but we’ll make the most of it. And we’re all ears for any suggestions on what to do there! Or if anyone has suggestions on other places to go, bring it on. The next several days will likely be full of tears, excitement and perhaps some panic.
