Our bags are packed. The checklists are completed. Our stomachs are jittery. But we are so READY!! In a matter of hours the three of us, Abbey, Colleen, and Katie, will be traveling as GROW (Grass Roots On-site Work) interns to Thailand to finally meet our partners at BWU! It’s been coming for so long that it just feels surreal.
The first challenge ahead is 20 hours of flying followed by navigating (rainy) Bangkok for the 8 hours bus to Mae Sot. (Deep breath) We have our raincoats handy for the intense rainy season (read: thunderstorms and flooding season) ahead of us. Wish us luck and safe travels!
