One week left until we depart for our first destination. We start taking our malaria pills tomorrow, we have our travel insurance set to go, today we booked our hostel for the first night abroad, and in general we're just running around finding things to pack. I think half of my bag is going to be toiletries! We're only bringing about one week's worth of clothes since we're only bringing backpacks. It's so strange that this trip is finally upon us. It seems so long ago that we started planning this in 2009. Don't forget to add us on Skype!
I leave you with some quotes from a travel journal I found:
"As you grow older, you'll find that the only things you regret are the things you didn't do."
"When I travel I have no idea what's in store for me, but if I'm wise and understand the art of travel, I let myself go into the stream of the unknown and accept whatever comes in the spirit."
"Once in a while it really hits people that they don't have to experience the world in the way they have been told to."
