85 days

I'm counting down the days now...

It used to feel so far away when I booked my tickets in May. The prices were going up and the choices were going down. I grabbed my seat with sweaty palms and a beating heart. I clicked the button and bought tickets to Thailand. 

I have been talking about it for years...

I have been looking at tours for years...

looking at different teachers itineraries...

none of them fit

I decided to go on my own, for my birthday. 

Here I am 85 days out now. I have my packing list. I cross things off and add to it. I have it categorized by type: clothing, toiletries, documentation, electronics, misc...What do you take for a 33 days trip 1/2 way around the world? I am reading every travel blog and list. I am taking to world traveling friends. I am obsessing about stuff. What stuff? How much stuff? Will I have too much or too little stuff? I need to stop reading about stuff for a bit.

On to vaccinines!
