Basically the plan is to wing it. Yup, that's my plan. Fly to Ghana, visit my old host family and set up camp at their home where I'll be keeping all my stuff, packing a back pack, catching a tro to the Volta region and hoping villagers take me into their homes if there's no guesthouse or hotel.
I had a sudden realiziation that I'll be meeting new people which is fun, but that I'm going to greatly miss not having Kate there. I met her on my trip last year and we spent nearly the whole time together when we weren't at our projects. She was the greatest travel buddy ever. I won't really be going to touristy spots so I'm not really sure I'll find someone so willing to take on my adventures with me but I'm sure I'll meet volunteers along the way. It was just nice to find someone to build a bond with and trust and not have to explain yourself over and over again.
I'm working 6 days a week, two jobs right now and though I'm sure I'll be fine financially, can't help but be a little nervous. I live in LA and unfortunately have lots of bills to pay while I'm gone...rent, car, insurance, etc. I am glad though, that my brother agreed to take in my little Lexi (my 4 pound pomeranian who's the love of my life). I'll be flying to Seattle first to drop her off, and then flying out the next day to Africa. She'll get a month of play time with his two pomeranians and a family to play with so at least she'll be happy but I'm going to miss her! I haven't been seperated from her for more than 2 days since she was born!
I wish I could travel all the time. I'd get so much more done! Hopefully by next year I"ll have the business off the ground and will have free reign to travel as I please =)
