Thirty-five. That’s the number of hours my travel from Hamburg to Wellington will take. I am sitting at the Airport in Hamburg right now and am waiting for my flight. The first plane will take me to Dubai from where I will continue to Wellington via Melbourne and Auckland. I tried creating the perfect sleep schedule to avoid any possibility of having a jet lag afterwards. I don’t really think this will work but let’s give it a try.

The last few weeks have been a busy time. My to-do list was enourmously long so I didn’t even have the time to sit back and realize what an incredible time is coming. It still is hard to believe, even now as my bags are getting loaded into the plane at this very moment. The journey in front of me will be so exciting. And it starts right now.
