Okay, so in my mind the worst part of this whole thing is the thought of getting all the vaccines required for me to go. But my husband helpfully read me descriptions of the diseases they're vaccinating against... None of them sound like a lot of fun. So I made my appointment for this Thursday to get everything required.
The helpful lady on the other end of the phone was surprised I was leaving so soon, as the recommended time frame for travel vaccinations is 6-8 weeks. I'm cutting it a little close with less than four.
I'll also be able to purchase some of the supplies I'll need, such as mosquito netting. Each step makes it that much more real and even though the thought of all the needles fills me near terror, the thought of being just that much closer to going is exciting.
