Flight number one…
I am on my first flight of my journey. It is somewhat surreal for me to actually be heading out. I have been thinking about this trip (or parts of this trip) for a long time and planning since February when I bought my tickets.
I am excited for many aspects of this trip. Some of the trip is professional development. I will be seeing things and visiting places that I have taught about for the past 5 years. I will be traveling to a number of countries and regions of the world I have never been to, including the continent of Africa for the first time. I will get to see some of my students in their home cities and see some Gould alums who I haven’t see since their graduations.
But now as I begin I can’t quite believe that it is real. Maybe it will sink in soon.
