In a few days my family and I are leaving on a world trip and we have started packing for our endeavor. Just today, we set out all of our clothing that we wanted to take and we have spent piles of money on Amazon for supplies we will need. Also, we’re taking longer walks with the dogs now so that we won’t get tired quickly while touring on the trip.
The trip hasn’t felt like it was real until very recently. Mom is reminding me that we are actually leaving after a year of planning, and I feel like I haven’t prepared at all. Now I’m rushing around all the time getting stuff ready and having panic attacks when I forget to pack or do something.
The places I am most interest in going I have wanted to go to for a long time, like Germany, France, and Poland because of the culture. There are also other countries that I had never thought about going to, such as Fiji and South Africa which I am very excited to go to now to see the crystal clear water of the south Pacific and the penguins and elephants in South Africa.
One thing I am unsure about is leaving our dog, Karli, at home for a year. Just imagine you left your house with no explanation (because we moved), and then your family leaves after two weeks for a year. Terrifying, Right? At least she’ll be with our grandpa and his dog, Rags. We will try to Skype with her so that she can hear our voices. But no matter what, I want to go on this trip because I think I will have a great time.
