So, final preparations have now begun. The packing list has been printed, my passport has been thoroughly checked and re-checked and I’ve had about all the goodbyes I can handle in a week. It was fun though, seeing everyone – and now I even have a pillowcase to cry on when I get homesick! (It’ll ruin the printing, but oh well… you’ll just have to send me a new one).
It’s only two more nights until I fly out, and it’s all a bit mixed – on the one hand I’m not looking forward to leaving for a year and not seeing everyone for a long time – but on the other hand I kind of wish it’s Sunday already and all the packing is over and done with and I’m ready to fly out.
Anyway, my next post will be posted from China! I have set up a VPN which allows me to internet through Dutch servers, so my blog will remain updated by my own hand. My brother has already ordered me to jog down the Chinese Wall, for at least a few Ks, if anyone else has specific requests / quests I have to undertake and blog about – just let me know and I’ll consider them 😉
