Tomorrow morning, my family and I embark on our second Middle East trip in the past 3 years.
I am getting anxious, excited, nervous…all kinds of feelings right now. I can’t wait to see my family, see more of the place my family and ancestors are from, and just experience more new things.
My Arabic speaking skills are poor, so that will suck…and it’ll be hot. Buuuttt I’ll be fine. I’ll make it through and probably love every moment – well mostly.
It’s an odd time for my family though. I won’t get into details because it’s rather private, but I really hope this trip turns out for the better.
Well – I’m all packed, sandwiches have been made (my mom is anti-buy airport food, with good reason), showers have been taken and I need to sleep! I’ll post as much as I can while I’m in Amman, Ramallah, and where ever we go – but it won’t be too consistent.
Wish me safe travels and see you all on the other side!
