Not Long Now…

I’m in Sedona, Arizona right now enjoying a weeklong holiday with my family. It has been quite relaxing and lovely. I’m glad to have this time before I officially leave… and I’m realising every day just how soon that is. Exactly three weeks from now, I will already be several days into the internship.

I got my driving schedule officially sorted today. I wasn’t sure how many days I would spend visiting friends along the way, but I have now finished confirming with everyone and I will leave on the morning of July 9. I’ll drive about 8 hours into Utah and probably stay in a hotel there unless I manage to find someone’s couch to crash on, then about 9 hours into Colorado to spend a night with cousins (by way of the unassumingly epic little intersection of Dekker Drive and Paradise Road–YES, IT EXISTS!). Next I’ll drive about 7 hours into Kansas to spend the night with Erica, with whom I originally planned to do the internship. I can’t wait to see her! Finally, on the morning of July 12, I will arrive at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Missouri. The last leg of the trip will be only about two hours, and I need to be there between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. And then the real journey will start.

Incidentally, the day I leave is the day I turn 22. I found this image on pinterest that got me so excited…

That’s me. Well, sort of. I don’t plan to be sleeping on any floors. But this is the perfect time in my life for the greatest adventure I have ever embarked upon.
