Today we said our goodbyes to the kids and dog, and we’re on our way. Behind these smiles we are nervous and a little scared, Not gonna lie!
Yesterday we had the best day celebrating Tim’s birthday and I was so happy that we were prepared and packed enough that we could spend the day having fun on the boat, eating pizza, doing cake and presents!
Over wine last night reality starting sinking in and we began going over the litany of things that could go wrong in our travels – from lost bags to baggage weight limits to forgotten items, flight connections, the Nairobi airport, bugs, we’re going to Africa dude!? on and on. Then onto the trek and how it’s been years since either of us has even been camping or slept in a tent and my favorite form was car camping where you can bring anything you need for comfort outdoors. This is so nothing like that! Then it was onto worrying about the kids and packing 3 of them for 4 camps, and then to how sad our dog is going to be when we leave!!! (She even LOOKS sad!)
This morning we zipped up the bags and somehow everything fit.
