On the flight home I realized how easy the trip had been and how the real difficulties lie ahead. It wasn’t the length of time (a 2 week trip vs. the rest of our lives), but the lack of responsibility for daily duties during the trip. No work, no cooking, minimal cleaning, no financial concerns as long as you stay within the agencies suggested guidelines. Your focus in on your new child and spouse or travel companion. The CCAI reps were outstanding and ensured we were where we needed to be when we needed to be there. They made sure our i’s were dotted and t’s crossed.
