Sitting comfortably in the San Francisco airport, I am either ready or I am too late. I’ve packed, un packed, re-packed, and done it all over again. I had three false starts getting out the door this morning with that “one last thing” that I remembered. I got dropped off by some of my favorite people and will miss all my friends and family very much. But the time will fly by. I’ll be home before I know it. 83 days only SOUNDS like a long time, but in the grander scope of a lifetime, it’s really very brief. I’m glad to be doing this now in my life, when I have support to fall back on if things go sideways.

I can’t wait to get out there into the big scary world. And find that it might not be quite so scary.


Even Butterbeer is strapped in and ready to go!


  1. The hardest part of any journey is the first step, and well you got that over with. Happy Day Zero, and to the 83 remaining.

  2. I am not sure where you are going but I hope that you have a safe and enjoyable trip. Can’t wait to see your pictures and I hope you are able to soak it all in. 🙂

    • Mary, I’m going to Tokyo, Hong Kong, Delhi, Amman, Casablanca, Barcelona, Rome, Florence, Venice, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and London. Fully around the world.

  3. Safe travels and have a great trip! Take pictures…
