36 hours baby... yeah!!!!

In 36 hours I will be sitting on a plane with 90% of my worldly belongings, heading off to start my new life in Vanuatu! How exciting!!! And somewhat freaky!!!

I've moved house before but this is something pretty huge... in fact it's huge on a scale that I've never known before! On one hand I really just want to hurry up and go, but on the other hand I'm worried that I'm going to forget stuff that I need. Not that I can't get replacement stuff over there but it's different when it's your stuff... the only symbol of continuity between the life you've just left and the life you're now entering!

I'm also having serious issues getting my baggage below 40kgs... My airline approved extra baggage takes me up to 30kgs but it still ain't enough. I have been spared having to make a decision on whether or not to take my pair of "crocs" with me, as after 9 months of faithful service they have decided that 36 hours before I get on a plane would be a great time to develop holes in their soles! I practically live in these shoes! I'm kinda distraught that they aren't going to make the trip with me... but glad that it's one less thing to worry about fitting in my bag. I might try to get a new pair at the last minute at the airport though... just might.

Oh you should definitely treat yourself to a new pair of crocs - you're starting a new life after all! GOOD LUCK in your new place and keep your eyes trained on your future, not your past.

The trip sounds exciting. I'm about to graduate college, and I wish I had plans to just leave to some far off place.

I say it's a good thing you can't take your crocs. I absolutely hate those shoes. A friend and I actually made a pact a few weeks ago to never, ever become one of those people that wear them. :)

I hope you have fun on your trip! Here from Michele's.

Buy a new pair and wear them on the plane! Have you thought about having your stuff shipped? That might be a good way to get some stuff over there easily.

Michele sent me. Isn't this exciting for you?

66 pounds of stuff isn't much to bring to a new life. Can't you ship some of it by boat while you take a plane, Yaeli?

I don't have Crocs but I've heard that they're great from so many people--eventually I'll buy a pair. I hope you replace yours soon, lovely Yaeli.

Have a great life and relationship out on Vanuatu!
