I write this first of many posts while settled into my flight from Portland, ME to Washington D.C. where we will have our Staging event. This event kicks off our Peace Corps experience with new friends, tons of information and an orientation on Saturday before we fly out on Sunday!
After eating one last Italien from Amato’s (a true Maine delicacy), I was dropped off at the airport with my bags.
I ended up with more bags than I wanted; being a canoeist, I never realized how much space my camping gear takes up in my hiking pack. Luckily it all fit comfortably in my daypack, leaving my carryon to be filled with notebooks, hats and snacks.
While I’m still not totally sure what to expect from staging, other than my passports, it promises to be an exciting time filled with new friends and the start to a new adventure. I wonder if we’ll play any of my favorite name games…
