That song, “I believe I can fly,” has been stuck in my head for weeks. Seems a lot more fitting for today. Had everything all packed and ready to go last night. I had a small Reece Witherspoon moment like in Wild, trying to put that pack on for the first time. It’s like carrying a large child on your back.

My mom drove me to the Vancouver airport this morning and we made it to the airport a few minutes before 7. I was all checked in, through baggage and security, and in my terminal by 7:30 am! Talk about fast! My flight departs in about 45 minutes and we’ll be boarding soon. Since I haven’t flown for 9 years it was a bit stressful not knowing what to expect flying out of Canada and not having ever used a passport before, but it was super simple. I did get my bag searched by security because my travel size contact solution was a bit larger than they allow, but they let me through with it anyway.

From here in Vancouver I will fly to Toronto, then to Lima, and then to Cusco by about 6:30 am. So, in a little less than 24 hours I will be there.

If you can see it from the picture, I come equipped with Cards Against Humanity and Bananagrams. Should come in handy during the long layover in Lima tonight with all the other volunteers that will be waiting to make the connecting flight to Cusco. We’re all planning on meeting up and playing games. Should be a fun (but sleepless) night!
