I leave in one week.
Not really sure what happened to the time between now and booking my first flight six months ago, but I do not think it will really hit me that this is happening until I step foot on the plane. Well, the first of four planes. With 30+ hours of travel time. And 4-hour layovers. Oh boy. If I can just not be completely comatose by the time I make it there, I will count it as a win. Small victories, right?
