Day 1

September 26th 11am-

Our adventure begins! This morning we arrived at the airport and were not able to check in because I had a security freeze on my name. This was a little scary especially given the fact that I accidentally left my license plates on when I sold my car to a man I later realized was a drug dealer. The United Representative assured me it was probably random selection, but I am not so sure. Then going through security Jeremy got stopped because he tried to take two zucchinis in his carry on bag. Luckily, the security screener was pretty amused with the situation and let the zucchinis through but advised him to place them in a 1 quart ziploc bag next time around.

Yesterday we found out that both our flight to Hong Kong and to Kathmandu is leaving a day earlier than expected. A little sad, but I guess we need to get used to these types of changes.

It finally feels real that we are going to be traveling for seven months and I have to admit I am feeling a little dread along with the excitement and anticipation. I plan on getting us some safety and harmony tailsmans in San Francisco. I am hoping I will be able to stay open and relaxed with most everything that comes up and not take anything too seriously. I also feel relieved since I got a rolling backpack yesterday and won't have to stress about carrying my backpack around with my weak knees.

Well thats all for now. I love you all!
