Prep before we go...

As you can imagine - leaving the country isn't an easy task. Not only are there direct debits to cancel, addresses to divert, accounts to stop, belongings to move out of the house, finding a home for wee Pablo....there is also the mental preparation involved before embarking on something like this. We are in the middle of a VSO 'Preparing to Volunteer' e-learning course at the moment, learning about adapting to different cultures and global development. In a few weeks time we'll be meeting some of the other volunteers on a residential weekend in Birmingham. It's all very well thought out and organised! I just hope by the end of it, I am prepared. Oh and I've just ordered a Teach Yourself Swahili CD from Amazon as well today!
