Well I just got back from one of the most amazing roadtrips I have ever been on! My buddy Austin and I, in our last get together before my big trip, headed out in search of adventures and that is exactly what we found. We started out from Austin’s home of La Verne, California and our trip took us to many destinations. Each destination brought with it new adventures and new experiences.
I got to dive into the Pacific Ocean to watch some of my buddies spear-fish (that’s Austin in the picture by the way), I learned to surf, I got to trespass on a golf-course to go ice-blocking, I explored the towns of Laguna Beach, San Diego, and Poway (its pronounced Pow-way lol), and I got to hang out with tons of cool people and make some new friends. Road trips are the greatest!
Now I’m back home and it is now three days until my plane leaves for Africa. Needless to say I have been frantic with preparing and packing. A few of the items on my list are my numerous medicines aimed at battling the perils of Africa, plenty of nice clothes (the Africans like looking sharp), my passport, and my new journal just to name a few (trust me there is much much more).
Anyway I can’t remember how many times I’ve double checked my bag and still I find no comfort. I always feel like I’m forgetting something (which I probably am). Hopefully I’ll be ready in time for take-off.
