INTERIOR -- Office setting --DAY:
COURTNEY: "Done and done!" .....(As Courtney blows on the tips of imaginary guns and reholsters them for yet another day of accomplished awesome-ness)
Let me back up a couple steps... I went home yesterday and researched the hell out of visas, who needs them and why. Because I'm there less than 90 days, I do not need one....and so I don't throw up any red flags upon my arrival I'm not even gonna mention WWOOFing. It just so happens to be that I'm just a REALLY HELPFUL guest ;) The same goes for Nepal and South Africa. Fan-fricken-tastic!!!!!!
In addition to my visa education, after reading umpteen reviews and deductible mumbo jumbo I settled on World Nomads travel medical insurance. Don't ask me exactly what is or isn't covered, my eyes were crossed by the time I had my credit card out. I figure though, if you carry an umbrella it usually doesn't rain...and if it does, at least I have something.
*The 'bonus round' tidbit of this fine, fine morning is the fact that while I'm the only one signed up for the Kathamndu yoga retreat thus far, I have been assured they will NOT cancel even if it's just lil'ol' me. Well golly gee...okay then, I can roll with being extra special, HA! :)
Oh, wait - what's that? I can hear Rochelle yelling all the way from Topanaga.... WHEN am I leaving and coming back? Ah yes, thanks 'Chelle for reminding me! I shall be departing Monday August 29th at 6:10pm and I shall return Thursday December 29 at 3:25pm.... just in time to honor the closing of an amazing year and usher in hopefully one that will follow suit!
Obviously, I like acknowledging all my peeps that are helping me throughout this journey....So in this blog, a HUGE shout-out goes to Aaron!! I'm so glad you were the first person to hear this news! Not only because you're the only other person awake at this gawd-awful hour (hahahaha) given the time difference between here and Ohio ( O-H-I-O!!), but because your reaction was sooo beautiful and sincere!
Immediately after texting him about my purchase, he replied with ample enthusiasm (many an exclamation point) and went on to ask, "How does it feel?" ..... to which I replied "Amazing and scary... I'm tearing up and having heart palpitations....Like I'm standing at the edge of an abyss about to freefall into darkness..."
And he said, " Be proud baby! This is huge and you're super strong! Take a deep breath..."
NOW THAT'S GOING INTO 'SAVED MESSAGES' ! ... I wanted to save all his replies because they were all equally loving, supportive and prideful.
Thank you Sir Noble! You're a gentleman and a scholar :)
Now to call and wake up my mama!!! :) .... Once again I leave you with a song ... or two because it's Twofer Tuesday
HAVE LOVE WILL TRAVEL
