Let the Countdown Begin!

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Three weeks from today I'll arrive in Manila for the start of my ten week adventure!  At lunch time, I had a doctor's appointment for one last vaccination before my trip; it was time for a Tetanus booster, which will also protect me against Diphtheria and Pertussis (whooping cough).

It seems like many people I talk to ask if I'm excited for this trip, and I hope my answer doesn't let them down.  I always answer honestly and tell them that it ebbs and flows.  At times, I'll be all jazzed up, and then I remember another 8 items to add to my shopping list.  Thankfully, I'm relying on trusty excel to keep me organized.

Last Friday night, I had the chance to go out to dinner with some executives for The Philippines office and several people on the Manila project team who were visiting from out of town.  My conversation with Sam (from The Philippines) was such a wonderful boost to my excitement - I am officially pumped!

I've got some blog posts planned for packing (yes, I'll pack BEFORE the day I leave) and about my shopping and about how I am getting ready for this trip.  Tune in soon!
