The bags are packed, the goodbyes have been said. In just a few hours we will be on a plane to Guatemala where our journey begins.
I can't really say I'm excited yet. It's so hard to comprehend something so different than anything I've done before. Whenever I have traveled in the past, I've always known exactly where I'd be going and what I'd be doing when I got there. Now all we have is a list of countries, and the names of people who might be able to help us along the way.
Every country will bring new challenges to face. Dealing with language barriers, cultural differences, lack of money, plus countless other obstacles we will have to overcome. Not knowing where we will be staying each night, what we will eat, or how we will get there. There is no doubt it will be an adventure, the event of a lifetime, we can only hope it will be an enjoyable one.
