Wow… I’m flying to China this evening, or at least starting a series of flights that will have me end up in China by Thursday/Friday… 12 hour time change, so depends where you look at it from.
Minus some last minute errands and packing I’m ready to go to China this evening, I think. Hopefully I have entertainment for the coming 30 hours of airplanes/airports ahead of me.
I think one of the hardest things will be to keep airplane mode on on my phone for the next ten months. I will be using WeChat, WhatsApp and Skype, as I will no longer be able to text in a traditional manner after leaving the country tonight. I will also be using a VPN service to use Facebook and emails and the like.
I’m feeling excited and nervous, but I’m confident in my ability to learn and grow and succeed in every way in this venture.
