Leaving in a few hours.
I’m super nervous! I’ve never been abroad. Worried/paranoid about getting pick pocketed, losing stuff, those awful mosquito bites I’m sure to get, etc.
Away for the next six weeks. Minimal to no posting, reblogging, facebook or emails.
Nervous, but excited. Can’t wait to land in Accra on Friday :D
