Trip Challenges


Moving Ahead

T-minus seven days and counting. Everyday has been eventful, but not like the last three. A situation has come up that could derail my trip. But things are working out slowly and the trip is still on as planned. It’s been a very sobering few days that have focused me more than ever. I pray there are no more bumps in the road. On Sunday I found the jacket I wanted at Macy’s. It was expensive. But it was quite affordable with 50% off sale and a wonderful VISA birthday gift card from a friend. Now, it’s time to pack meticulously without forgetting the little things such as q-tips, sleeping cap, scarf and more. So now my things-to-do list turns into a packing list.

  • Tickets
  • Passport
  • Vax Card
  • Rail Pass
  • Credit Cards
  • Travel Bag
  • Electronics
  • Pocket Wi-Fi
  • Footwear
  • Clothing
  • Toiletries
  • Jacket
  • Itinerary
  • Packing
  • Currency
  • Devices

The details of my itinerary are being fine tuned. I’m taking screenshots of Google map directions for my iPad mini. There are some places that I can only wish to have time to visit. But I hope you are surprised to see the places I do get to.
