Off to the North country


This is going to be fast and unedited. I haven’t eaten all day, have no make-up on, must gather up all my gadgets and chargers, empty the dishwasher, finish the laundry, and figure out what Mandarin supplies I want to take. Other than that I’m ready for Ben to pick me up in an hour. Oh yeah, I have to write this post!

I have a few expectation for the next few days.

1) I expect to lose 1-3 pounds

2) I expect to be stared at

3) I expect to have my photo taken once, either on the sly or with someone

4) I expect I won’t be as cold as everyone thinks

5) I expect to eat all the granola bars and drink all the Starbucks VIA coffee  I packed

6) I expect to do a lot of reading

7) I expect that I may break my Golden Rule and eat at McDonald’s (if there is one)

8) I expect to have a lot of good stories next week 😉

9) I expect to have a blast no matter what happens!

About vikarenously

I am an ex-pat living in Guangzhou, China. I am married to the man of my dreams who has indulged my love of travel by working hard enough to snag two international assignments. Oh yes, I also have two amazing children who accompanied us on our first one to Switzerland and are now mature and responsible adults which makes it so easy for us to experience this adventure as empty-nesters. Experience it vicariously with Karen.
