Tonight I worked on some quick and painless things for a friend who travels abroad a lot. Monica is one of my closest friends from college, a bridesmaid in my wedding and one of the most giving and open people I have ever met. She works at Winrock International, a nonprofit organization that works with people across the world to increase economic opportunity, sustain natural resources, and protect the environment. She works with a scholarship program for mid-career African women who wish to pursue Master’s or PhD degrees in agricultural development or environmental-related fields. She also helps a team in Thailand and Vietnam that seeks to improve the lives of the rural poor within the Mae Lao and Dong Nai watershed areas of those countries. Cool, isn’t she? She is going to Thailand, Singapore and Myanmar next month and she is trying to plan a trip to Korea on her way back home to see me, YAY!
A simple little travel essentials bag for some small items to take in her carry-on, tissues, travel toothbrush & toothpaste, lotion, etc.
