I am rather excited...

Hello. My name is Kristy Jade.

My favourite colour is light tan yellow.

I have lived in the same city all of my life, in my beautiful country of New Zealand.

I have never been to the South Island of New Zealand (shame on me, I know!).

I have never been to another country.

I have never been on a plane before.

In less than two months I will be traveling to the opposite side of the world with my husband, to join with a group of young people (from all over the world) in ISRAEL!!!!

We will be learning heaps, serving the community, riding camels, listening to holocaust survivors, floating in the Dead Sea, meeting the locals, riding camels, camping in the desert, visiting historical Biblical sites.... and did I mention riding camels?

I am excited... and I am going to miss my kids terribly... but I am soooooo excited!

I wonder if they let you take crochet hooks on planes?

  7. how exciting! You're going to have the best time! My first plane trip was a reasonably long one to Buenos Aires - my advice (which I wish I had known then) is to take a Vicks Vapour stick - you know the ones you can sniff, and hold it under your nose while landing. First time I had sore ears for 3 days! Look forward to hearing all about it!
