It took my awhile to get computer access so I’m a tad late as I am already in New Zealand, but I kept a journal entry for while I wasn’t able to post.

It hasn’t hit me yet that I will be leaving in less than a day! I feel like yesterday I still had a couple of months and hadn’t even started thinking about it yet. Writing this all down has got my nerves going a little bit, I’m starting to get a little anxious, excited and nervous all at the same time. I feel like I am someone that really can’t fathom things that I have not seen and since I have never been to New Zealand before, I don’t really have any expectations of what the country will have to offer. Of course, I hear they have a lot of sheep, love rugby, and are crazy about The Lord Of The Rings, so I guess I’m leaving with that notion.

While I have heard only good things from people about their travels in the country, I am crossing my fingers that I have a wonderful time as well. I am beyond excited to start my internships and am so lucky to have two great internships coming my way with what seem like pretty amazing people. I am looking forward to seeing what the country has to offer and the experiences I will forever take with me.


One thought on “Pre-departure

  1. I was in the same boat before I got to Costa Rica! Everyone I had talked to said they absolutely love their time here, but it felt so out of body for me since I had not experienced it yet for myself! Hope you enjoy your time abroad!
