Packing for 1 year! What a Challenge :)

It was so nice to have good bye parties and meeting up with friends almost everyday, but it was time for me to get more serious and start thinking about what might have been one of the most difficult things I had to do: packing for 1 year!!!!
One of the things I packed the first was my 2 bottles of Pisco, which I wrapped very carefully. Once I had an accident and a bottle didn't make it leaving an awful smell in my bag, ughhh. But Pisco wasn't the only thing I was taking with me. I had to pack Craig’s sublimes, the Peruvian chocolates he was craving for and was a special request. And also Dan’s coca tea. I would stay at Craig's in Australia - until starting school - and at Dan's in L.A. I was also taking with me boots. I know, it’s crazy, but I’m small and so my clothes, so I just stuffed the boots with shirts. I was maximizing the space ;)
Mom helped me while packing, but who wasn’t that happy and very intrigued was my baby… Gunther noticed something very strange was going on and almost jumped inside my bags twice, poor baby. I just wish there would be a way I could take him with me… He was sniffing the bags the whole time, grrrrr. I was flying with 2 airlines (Lan & Quantas) and both allowed me to take
So, paperwork was ready and also my luggage, now I just had to wait for the big day… how exciting!!!!
