I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane

"Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore."

This year is turning out to be a year travel and adventure for me. On May 30 I will be leaving for Ghana, Africa for a month. I am traveling with a group called Families for Children International and will be teaching orphans in the city of Cape Coast . . . about two hours from the capital, Accra. The preparation is getting to the fun stages now. I have taken care of my passport, vaccinations, malaria pills, etc. Now it's time to start planning lessons for the children!

Soon after that I will be jetting off to London to spend a semester abroad. The BYU London Center is just around the corner from Hyde park so we will be in a great location! From what I have learned about the program so far we will have classes in the morning, followed by free time to explore the city for the rest of the day. We will also take extended trips to the north and west of London, and a week long excursion to Paris.
