So It Begins...

(Springfield to Mumbai)
The time has come. I have been waiting for over a year for this day. The day I travel to India! This is the reason I have been absent lately, I have been packing and preparing for the trip of a lifetime. I'm excited to come back with stories as well as photos. I have a plain journal dedicated solely to this adventure. While I am away, I have a few friends lined up to post on Always Rooney! I know you will love each of them, they all have something great to share. 
It took me a while to pack, I had to decide what was important and what could be left behind. I brought skirts only, and I will (hopefully) wash my clothes while I am there- this saved room while packing! To let you in on a little secret, I even had to pack my own toilet paper...woohoo!
I'm so ready to go, it doesn't even seem real.

I'll see you in twelve days...


  1. Wow! Excited for you, Courtney :) Have fun on your adventure. Can't wait to hear your stories when you return. x

  2. God speed my friend!! I know you'll have a wonderful time over there!! Words of advice - don't be offended by people staring, ONLY drink bottled water, definitely eat with your hands, and bring a bar of soap with you to the bathroom (or at least those hand sanitizers) because most of the ones I visited did not have soap (or toilet paper, but you have that covered). Have fun, I cannot wait to see your photos and read your stories!!

  3. Enjoy yourself, pretty lady! I'm sure you'll have an amazing time!

  4. eeeep! have fun!
