The countdown officially begins…

30 Jun

One week from tomorrow I will be leaving Toronto for Nepal.

In Kathmandu I will be volunteering with Fair Trade Group Nepal for 10 months as their Communications Advisor.

That’s about all I know right now except that it’s both exciting and terrifying at the same time.

I have been interested in visiting Nepal for many years now, and actually, my twin brother and I were conceived there! So, in some way I feel like my trip there could give me some ‘look into my history’ or at least give me some closure on the love affair between my parents that I only know a little about.

I have quit both my jobs in Toronto, packed my stuff into a friend’s garage and am leaving a beautiful boyfriend to go on this amazing adventure.

Yes, I am scared. But also really excited.

Welcome!

Welcome to my blog. 

I’ve set this up to chronicle my time in Nepal, where I will be living and volunteering from July 2012 to May 2013. 

If it goes well, I will continue to post other future travels along with other semi-interesting stuff in Canada, upon my return. 

Please leave comments and feedback! Thank you for stopping by!
