As my friend Emily would say, 3 more sleeps until Africa! It’s pretty hard for me to think of anything else at this point. I’ve packed my suitcase, am getting my backpack ready, and today I scored a sweet fanny pack at Goodwill. Yep, a real live fanny pack. I want to be able to have a few things with me during the day, including gluten-free snacks and a water bottle. But the last thing I want to do is carry a bag over my shoulders all day.
At least it’s a sporty fanny pack and not one of those black pleather ones from back in the day. I did see one of those at Goodwill if you want me to go back and grab it for you.
I’m rethinking my clothes a little bit because of the weather forecast. Compared to Phoenix, Ethiopia will be chilly and wet. I wasn’t planning on bringing jeans or heavy shoes, but now I’m thinking that my Toms might not be able to handle the mud if it’s too wet.
I’m sure I will be constantly packing and re-packing until it’s time to leave at dark-thirty Monday morning. If you are a world traveler and have any packing tips, let me know!
