Okay, all our transportation arrangement and accommodations have been booked. I have ironed out our itinerary. I have almost finished (90%) packing. I am praying everything will go smoothly as planned and the weather will cooperate. I am exchanging excited thoughts with my travel buddy Chie every now and then. We are on leave from seeing each other because we will meet on the 24th to have our hair cut styled (Hey! A girl still gotta look good, we will conduct our very own photo shoot there!) and will have our last minute ‘meeting’ to review and make sure all parts of the trip are covered. Two weeks on the road with nothing as our companion but the sun, our bag packs and of course, the big world out there. Just a couple more weeks! I have never been this excited my whole life.
