End of Intermission

This last week here in Scotland with my sister and her family has been a beautiful intermission, a time to refocus and prepare, and thanks to my adorable nephew, Sam, remember that simple things can be quite extraordinary. I don’t think I realized when I booked my trip in this manner how much I needed this boundary as I left one thing to start another. Traditionally in my adventures my fear of the unknown kicks in and I start to think that I don’t really want to go, that I am in fact making a big mistake, that I want nothing more than to just go home. I’m not sure whether its because I know this is where I need to be right now, or the knowledge that so many people are supporting me, or that I took time to rest, or if its a little bit of each but I am thankful to not be second guessing or worrying about my decision, to walk into this with calmness.

I would, however, appreciate prayers, good thoughts, whatever you are comfortable with as I travel. I leave tonight at 8:30pm and won’t arrive in Guinea until 8:05pm tomorrow night. In between are four airports, three connections, a six hour layover, lots of airplane food and very little sleep. All of which culminates in navigating immigration with no VISA, just exemption papers and travel documents. By the time I get to the ship and to my room I’ll have been traveling for about 26 hours and for those who know how hangry I can get, imagine Mavis on no sleep also… here’s hoping I have patience beyond measure!

I have no clue how quickly I’ll be able to access the internet onboard so I’ll just say check the news on Thursday night, no airplane crashes mean I made there ok 😉
