Well, the backpack is packed to the absolute brim, and my room is emptied out for the subletter that's moving in. I can't believe I am actually leaving for this trip that I started planning a year ago. I will arrive in LA around 5:45pm (LA time) and my flight to Nadi, Fiji doesn't take off until 10:30pm. Sigh. I downloaded some movies onto my IPod and have a lot of books, so I will hopefully be able to entertain myself.
I arrive in Nadi early in the morning on Friday, January 30th. I actually lose an entire day in travel, which is semi-weird. I gain a day when I come back (also weird!) as well, so I guess it balances out in the end. ;-) I will be staying for a night in Nadi before I am picked up for my 5 day cruise of island hopping. It is the wet season in Fiji, but hopefully there will be plenty of sunshine. It's snowing up a storm in Ann Arbor, so anything has to be better than this!
