Itinerary

Here is my upcoming schedule and a little info about Pre-Service Training (PST) if you’re curious:

 

Tuesday, March 3rd

7:15am: Leave home for the most exciting trip of my life

9:10am: Depart from Manchester, NH airport

10:40am: Arrive in Philadelphia and head to hotel for Staging

2:00-7:00pm: Staging! (Meeting everyone & learning what to expect, safety basics, etc.)

 

Wednesday, March 4th

2:00am: Check out of hotel & depart to airport  (← Will I sleep that night? Probably not.)

10:40am: Flight from JFK to Johannesburg!

(a quick 15hrs)

 

Thursday, March 5th

8:40am: Arrive in Joburg

10:00am:Depart for MALAWI

12:20pm: Arrive in Lilongwe, Malawi

 

As you can see, it’s going to be a lonnngg couple of days filled with new faces, tons of information and lots of travel time. Upon arrival in Lilongwe, our group will head to a local training facility where we will reside for the first few days. During this time, we’ll discuss the basics of Malawian culture, participate in language lessons and learn about medical & safety issues. After a few days, we will be transported to Kasungu for PST which lasts until the end of April. During this time, I will have no electricity so write to me via snail mail! You can find my address and instructions under the “Contact Me” tab of this site.

 

 

3 Things I’m Pumped for:                                                        3 Things I’m Less Pumped for:

80 degree weather! (we have 2 ½ feet of snow right now)  Inevitably getting sick

Meeting and becoming friends with my host family                 Lack of my favorite snacks

Getting to know the other volunteers                                      Taking malaria pills daily

 

 

15 days till Philly!
