One week

In one week I will be sitting on the plane, about to take off. I will have my very heavy bags loaded on the plane, packed with all the medical and personal supplies for my stay. I will have snacks and a pillow and blanket and books to read (electronic books, of course). All my planning will be done.

I am nearly ready to go. I’ve checked off most of my to-dos, and just have to visit with Border Control on Tuesday to get my Global Entry approval. Thank goodness I was able to find an appointment before my trip; the first time I looked the only appointments available were in April!

The photos along the right side are from my Instagram account. I will fill this with snapshots from along my journey. I bought a back up battery for my iPad and iPhone to keep everything running smoothly. Here’s hoping everything works.
