a long wandering…

Jambo! Hello!

I am so pleased you took a moment to stop by and read about my adventures. Please bear with me as I work out the kinks and attempt to figure out this new blog platform.

As many of you know, I am leaving in one week (July 1st, 2010) to take a grand adventure across the ocean–to Africa! A long time dream of mine, I truly can’t believe it will be my reality! I will be working with the NGO Invisibile Children, in Gulu Uganda, from late July-December and doing photography for a start-up safari company in Kenya. To learn more about Invisible Children, please visit their site: www.invisiblechildren.com.

My timeframe looks a little something like this:

July 1-4: Fly from Raleigh/Durham to Philadelphia to Brussels to Nairobi, Kenya. Staying with old, dear friends, the Van Praags.

July 5-20: Meeting with buddies from Durham, NC, Abe and Joseph, who have been at the World Cup. We are going to (attempt) to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, explore Zanzibar, travel to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and…who knows what else! If you have ideas, email me and we will explore!

July 20-26: Back in Nairobi.

July 26: Fly to Entebbe, Uganda, and meet Andrew, the Communications Officer for Invisible Children, who will drive us the 5 hours north to Gulu, my new home.

July-Dec: Working for Invisible Children, in Gulu.

I will be adding photos and video to this blog at least once a week, so be sure to check in frequently!

Thanks for all of your love and support on this journey. If anyone is interested in helping out financially, please donate to my travel fund via paypal.

  3. Hey Molly,

    I am so excited and scared for you. I feel like my Aunts when I say “Please, do be careful.” Iam proud of you for going but worried and will be relieved when you are once agin in the USA.

    Your website is great and I will follow your activities regularly. Your Grandma Marron certainlyhad a wandering foot gene that has been passed on to many of her grandchildren. As much as she was interested in the world she rarely went beyond her own front door. Do Good Work, Be Well, and Keep in Touch, Aunt Sheila

  4. Hi Molly!

    It’s been a long time, but I was on twitter and stumbled on your blog, which is awesome. Looks like you went to some great places and got some sweet shots. I love looking at travel blogs. I recently got back from China where I also kept a travel blog. Good luck and I look forward to reading more of your blogs.

  5. Miss Molly,

    I am so loving your BLOG. I sat and read the whole thing and was transfixed on every word and adventure that you kept describing. I am so proud of you because you made this happen. I will keep you in my prayers. I miss you and if you move back to Asheville after this, I will be here.
