On the Road Again

As you might have gathered from my last post, I’m on the road again. This year might make the record for the long time on the road while actually not living overseas. I’ll basically be summering in Africa. Schedules are made to be broken, but the most likely scenario will be Burundi, DRC, Zimbabwe, and then back to DRC again.

I’m once again chilling in Nairobi airport for a few hours en route to Bujumbura, Burundi (though definitely not as cold as Europe). This is my sixth time in Nairobi airport in the last five months. The funny thing is that I’ve never actually left the airport, and thus Kenya still doesn’t make it on to my country count, even though I’ve spent several days here all together.

My husband will be headed to Baghdad in a couple of weeks, so it will be a good distraction for both of us, though I admittedly miss him already. I am looking forward to the work that I’ll be doing over the next several months on the road. I’m just happy to dearly love my work, even if it means my work is often my life. As my boss puts it in interviews, this line of work is less of a job, and more of a lifestyle.

Looking forward to posting more of my adventures as we get through the summer.

Cheers,

Miel
