Well . . . here I am!
I’m not exactly sure how to handle the whole “blog-thing,” but my goal is to figure it out soon. I want to write about my journey as I prepare for Ecuador and during my time in Ecuador. Hopefully, we can stay connected – or begin a connection – during this time.
As I say prepare for Ecuador, the process has been S-L-O-W. Or, maybe I have been slow. 🙂 Hmph. Some of the things I’ve been working on are: finding a foster home for my dog Hannah, selling my car, finding a storage unit, purchasing international insurance (this is NOT an easy task because most people think you are speaking a foreign language when you ask about that), trying to learn Spanish, and getting a will written up (that’s a fun thought, I know). With that being said, I have completed none of the tasks, but have made headway on most of them. One day, I hope to tell you that I have completed all of my tasks.
WorldTeach, the organization I am traveling with to Ecuador, confirmed my flight today. I leave on Sunday, September 2. Wow . . . that’s only 40 days away! I have a feeling that while it sounds like a lot of days, it will be here pretty quickly.
With that being said, my biggest hope is not to dwell on my “to do” list. I really want to enjoy these days too. I wonder what some fun things would be to do in St. Louis to soak in the city before I go.
- What would you suggest I do to savor my time in St. Louis?
- What would you do if you only had 40 days until you left the country for a year?
Post some comments because I’d love to read your ideas! Thanks for reading my first post!
