`

And I am off.

Passport


Sitting at the Eugene airport - having my coffee + bagel + cream cheese. Gave Chris and Simon lots of hugs and kisses (getting tougher and tougher to leave each time). Told Simon I was going to bring him back a koala and a kangaroo - and that he gets to go see Grandma Pati next week - he was all good.


Starting my scrapbook on the road for this trip here in the airport. Writing about the "context" of this trip, my feelings as I leave, etc. I have been giving an amazing opportunity to travel - so very amazing. Unreal to me at times.


And like I said yesterday, life is for living and that is what I plan to do.


Peace my friends.

    Wow... what an amazing experience this trip will be for you. I know it must be so hard to leave, though... it's so great that you can count on Chris and your mom to hold down the fort while you're away.
    I hope that you have a great trip and keep us posted on all of your adventures :)

    Well you will be in Australia or in NZ our beautiful country by now. I hope you weren't on any of the fogged out flights that were diverted to Fiji from Auckland! Hee hee. Hope you have a wonderful time here. Wellington is ab fab, I love it and I'm sure you will to. You will have to take backa kiwi for Simon, not just a kangaroo and a koala :) Ohg and pineapple lumps too (yum). Have fun! Neen in the Waikato region of New Zealand
