I'm very excited for the trip, but it's very hard to know if I'm prepared enough. We have pretty tight weight restrictions for checked baggage and carry-ons. It really helps that Daniel is willing to take the kitchen sink along in his carry-on luggage, so I'm free to pack a few more luxuries (like more than 2 pairs of shoes, and an extra sweater or two). It snowed in Cape Town this week! I'm glad I packed a toque.
Anyway, I'll try to post a few adventures along the way, but I'm hoping they aren't TOO exciting (e.g., encounters with large carnivorous animals). Love to all family and friends, and hope you have a great summer.
