I remember it well

Wow. That was the most stressful journey to an airport I’ve had in a while.

For some reason, the packing for this trip just wasn’t as easy as I had thought it would be.  I had everything, I didn’t have everything. I needed stuff, I’d make do without it.

New toys

In the end, I had to do a full repack to accommodate the solar panel charger I bought, which has a lithium battery.  Cannot be put in hand luggage.

I am glad for my one stop. Glasgow – Dubai – Kathmandu.

I am really nervous.  I don’t know why or where it has come from but I really don’t know what to expect, despite having been there before?

I hope I am of some use.  I hope our group work well together (flash backs of Peru coming to my mind).  I hope I have enough money.  I hope my checked bag makes it to Kathmandu.  I hope I am able to do the job that is required of me.  I hope my fitness is not so abysmal that I cannot keep up.

At least I get a little time in Dubai tomorrow to gather my thoughts.  Though my growing concern I have realised comes from the fact that actually, for a whole year and a half, all that has consumed my mind is finding a way to go back to give back.  And now, finally, that moment is here and I can’t help but feel more than a little emotional about it all.  What a struggle it has been. How much fighting and arguing with bosses and supervisors to try and release me.  In the end, I do not know if I have found the right project but all I can do is go and do my best.

Wish me luck guys!

Not sure how much wifi I’ll have once we get going so I’ll check in when I can.
