Lindsey and I accomplished lots of exciting things today!!!!

First, we went to our third vaccine appointment. Each of us got a rabies, typhoid, and chicken pox vaccine, which totaled almost $900 all together.

Plus, we purchased plane tickets!!!!!!!! This is a huge milestone for us!!!!!!!! We will be leaving July 6th from Dulles around noon. Then we fly to Tokyo, where we have a 7.5 hour layover. From there we fly to Manila. Then, we fly from Manila to Davao. Finally, we take a boat ride to the island of Samal! In total, the flight is 29 hours and 49 minutes long! Our return date is December 5th. We will be spending 152 days in the Philippines.

Fortunately, we are flying on ANA and Philippines Airlines the whole time, which have amazing reviews!

Today, we also got Dr. Sherwin to give us all the paperwork we need to apply for visas. So, when Lindsey and I go home for the next 2 weeks, we can travel to the Philippines Embassy in D.C. to get the visas approved.

More updates to come!
