Up All Night

Here we go. I am officially - a blogger. I wish I would have started this blog weeks ago but nothing like waiting til the last minute.
I am due to leave tomorrow (now make that today) for Africa. I was determined that this time (unlike every other major adventure I have undertaken) I was NOT going to be up all night tending to last minute details the night before I leave. But here we are at approximately 12:11 at night and - I am still up getting things done.
The good news - everything I am taking miraculously fits in my backpack (it's like I am Houdini)
The bad news - I cried a lot of the evening cause I'm so scared/stressed/tired
Well, still have things to cross off the TO DO list.


  1. I'm so glad you set up your blog- I'll be following it regulary! Love your title, too!! Carry on courageous woman, and may the force be with you!!!

  2. Well I unwillingly contributed enormously for the late part of the trip ... all goes well when we follow our heart and live in the moment. I love you ~ xoxo

  3. Have a great time, travel safe. You never know who you might meet!!

  4. Hey girl, We just pulled into Tenacatita on our way to ztown. Good sailing and dinners on the beach. Have a rad time in Africa. Love you, Greg & Elina

  5. Mandy,

    I think I figured out how to post comments on your Blog. If you, or I, never see this posting that won't be true and I'll continue to chat with you via e-mail or Facebook.

    Great adventure ahead of you. Can't wait to read more. Love you! Go girl!! Dad

  6. That is quicker than I thought but have a safe and enjoyable trip. Where are you landing first? If and when you visit with Moyra or Ian please let me know. It would be nice if something good for you will come about there. I believe it would be an enjoyable experience. Stay well and keep on the alert and on your toes. You are in my prayers.
