So this morning I woke up and had a small freakout closely followed by a lengthy dance party. I’ll tell you why.

In exactly one week from today I will be in approximately hour 12 of a 20 hour flight here:image image image photos from this amazing photographer and world traveler.

At this point I am beyond excited to go – and just want to be there. I don’t want to have to go through the next week of stress re: packing, obsessing over last minute travel plans, getting my affairs in order etc. Leaving the country for a month and a half leaves a lot of loose ends that need to be tied up – not fun, I can assure you.

I am going home tomorrow to spend a few days with my family before I fly out so I have TONS of things to do here today and tomorrow before I head home. I have lists everywhere and my mind is craziness. I’ll be blogging right up until I leave and hopefully even updating from India.

Talk soon. J

Speaking of 20 hour plane rides – I am currently in the process of restocking Mr. Ipod for the trip. Any suggestions will be welcomed here.


  1. i left a handful of bands for you on twitter last night : ) a nice little list

  2. sooo sooo jealous... in a good way! a friend of mine just got back and she loved it and I know you will too.

  3. wow! you're so blessed! and lucky! and excited! this is great. i'm so happy for you and not at all jealous.. :)
    ps, those photos are amazing.

    as far as mr. ipod (who i love, btw), i can't make any suggestions to you.. that would be like trying to buy a present for the person who has everything.


  4. Enjoy India! I hope you deal with the culture shock ok, I'm sure it will be bitter sweet at times, but it will all be an experience. I just blogged about some music I'm in love with right now:

  5. I'm so excited for you! What will you be doing there?

    India is one of my dreams! Along with Ethiopia.
