Everything has been falling into place over the last week. In case you didn’t know, I am going to Europe tomorrow! I am so excited. My Padre, Barb and I are going to London, the Czech Republic, Germany and Austria for almost 2 weeks. I can’t wait! It should be amazing, but that’s a lot of travel less than a month before I leave for Cambodia. I had been waiting for some paperwork from NAU to get my teaching license. I was worried that it wouldn’t come before I left for Europe, and if I turned in the paperwork when I got home it might not get done before I left for Cambodia. But it came on Saturday! Hooray! Although they said they couldn’t tell me if teaching in the Peace Corps would count for the 2 years full time teaching experience when it was time to renew my license, but I’ll deal with that when the time comes :). One less thing I have to worry about!
Also, my flight info/staging information arrived! Staging is the training that all of us heading to Cambodia will attend before we leave. It will be in LA July 9th. I’ll fly out in the morning, and we’ll have meetings all afternoon. Then on July 10th, we will fly out of LAX and head to Cambodia! Yikes! We leave LA on Wednesday at 1:00 pm, fly over to Tokyo and refill, and then head over to Bangkok (20 hours!). Then we have a 9 hour layover in Bangkok, and head over to Cambodia at 8:00 am. We finally get to Cambodia at 9:00 am on Friday. I can’t even begin to fathom being on a plane for that long. The good news is, after my flight to Europe and my flight to Cambodia I’ll be so sick of flying even if I freak out once I get there and refuse to get off the plane, there’s no way I’m going to go on another 20 hour flight home, so I’ll just suck it up :). Anyways, I can’t wait for Europe tomorrow! Should be lots of fun :).
