PANIC - I'm leaving this weekend

I've had my LOI since early September, but it was just confirmed this morning that I'm leaving this weekend as I need to be in Kazakhstan next week.


I am mostly ready, it is just the final packing and stuff to do. I'm still shaking. It is finally happening.

Diane, who is in Kazakhstan bonding with her lovely daughter (Mr. Baby) will be arriving home this weekend, we will literally pass at the airport.

I cannot express how excited I am!!!!

That's awesome Michele! You've waited so long and now the first moment of many more exciting moments has arrived! Today I was just reflecting that it was a year ago that I was told I would be travelling. Then I turned and looked at my daughter still feeling some disbelief that a year has gone by since that time and also disbelief that she is with me and we are living our dream life together. After such a long wait and many ups and downs, my dream actually came true. I know your will too.
I wish you happy and safe travels as you begin the journey to living your dream! Can't wait to read your blog and hear how your story unfolds.
All the best!

Wishing you all the best,
