It’s the night before we leave for New Orleans and I could not be more excited! For one thing, I’ve never been on an airplane before, so the adventure begins at 7:30am, just a few hours from now. I have to say the only thing that makes me nervous is getting through airport security!

Another thing I’m really looking forward to is team bonding. So far, it seems we have a very good team dynamic… We have been laughing and joking around all night! It promises to be a very fun week.

As someone who has never traveled much, I cannot wait to experience the unique culture of New Orleans, from food to the French Quarter to real jazz music. This experience will provide invaluable exposure to a culture other than my own.
