The Journey Begins (Part Two)

Singapore-bound!

I’m in the air now on my first flight of three in the next thirty hours or so: 

Nashville to Chicago to Tokyo to Singapore! The first of two countries I’ll visit on this journey. 

If you’ve followed me for any length of time since November 2017, at some point you have probably seen this video:

These highlights, songs, and smiles capture with such amazing clarity and depth who we are and why we do what we do. This will be my second time working with the U.S. Embassy there, and I can’t wait to build upon the amazing work we had the opportunity to do together previously. 

The descent to Chicago is beginning now. Time to put my tray table up, and my seat back in its upright and locked position. 

This first flight was delayed 40 minutes which means a tighter connection for Tokyo, so I’m going to get packed up, say a prayer, settle into my seat, look out the window and prepare for the days ahead. 

Here we go…
