The wait is finally over and off to the United States we go.
Arriving at the airport in Durban on the 18 November, I was ready to embark on the long trip to the USA. Having to say farewell to my mother and sister-in-law proved to be rather emotional as
Landed in Johannesburg …. Now for the 7 hour wait in the airport.
Met up with André from Cape Town and a few of the other participants flying out on the same flight to the USA. Everyone seeming very excited!
21H40 has arrived and off we go, 15 hours and 50 minutes till we set foot in New York International (JFK) Airport…
Yes!!! We are in the United States of America!
Now, passport control - check, collect luggage – check, bags rechecked – check. Now for something to eat, and then, e-mail everyone at home to say “Safe in New York” while we wait to board our flight to Florida :-)
Landing in Fort Lauderdale… exhausted yet so excited!!!!! We are here and the adventure begins!
“Life is what you make of it”……… so to every participant on our program, remember to embrace every minute and know that there are so many that will never get to travel and experience what you will and are doing!
Enjoy it, have fun and see you all at the Workaway Party soon soon :-)
