I wrote this blog post a couple of times already but I think it is most fitting to write it straight from the airport. In just 30 minutes, I will be boarding the plane to Belize for 2 weeks and I am really excited. The past couple of nights I have been calm but last night it was actually hard for me to sleep because I was nervous. I honestly can’t explain why but I think its because this whole thing is so surreal and something ive been wanting to do for so long!
Luckily, through the help of CELA, I know another person on my flight that can keep my company. I would definitely try to find someone, even if you dont know them, who may be at the same airport/flight as you.
This past week, I have learned such a good way of packing that will make my trip so much easier. Everything is rolled up almost in a burrito shape that doesn’t fall apart which makes it super easy to grab items. I suggest to everyone that even if they think they know a good way to roll their clothes and pack them, look at Youtube videos and learn from there.
For reference, here is the one I watched:
I am so lucky to be able to be somewhere so beautiful, immerse myself in a different culture, all while working with animals. I hope you follow me along for all the pictures and comments I have about my trip. I am keeping a notebook handy so I can write my experiences as they happen!
