Leave for host family tomorrow morning at 4:45am to catch the plane to Sevilla. Currently a little past 12 here at night...remember we are six hours ahead of the USA.
I am both nervous and excited to meet my host family tomorrow. I'm not really sure what to say to them when I first meet them and I'm going to look rediculous dragging my beast of an L.L.Bean bag without wheels!
Wish me luck...


  1. Heather, my thoughts are with you as the moment has arrived that we have talked about for so long. I send you hugs and kisses. Tu Mama

  2. good luck!! by the way, just saw an ad for Royal Pains saying it's gonna have a winter season this year.
