I am blogging from Norman, Oklahoma.  I leave for Peru 2 weeks from today! As my departure gets closer, I find myself making millions of to-do lists.  My most recent list consisted of the following:

  • Meeting with Alice Kloker about Visa process
  • Appointment with travel nurse at Goddard for vaccinations and malarial medication
  • Buy camera
  • Set my sister up on Skype
  • Register with the US Consulate (travel.state.gov)
  • Let my bank know I’m leaving the country
  • Laminate/put photo on my ISIC Card
  • Get extra debit card in case I get mugged :/
  • Make a Peru Folder to bring with me consisting of the following:
  1. OU FAN or bank statement to prove financial solvency (for Visa)
  2. Official acceptance letter from PUCP (for Visa)
  3. List of classes I would like to take
  4. Copy of Passport
  5. Homestay address and telephone number
  6. Flight itineraries
  7. Proof of vaccinations/shot record
  • Make copies of documents in my Peru folder for family members/others back home
  • Purchase Atlas Series Travel Health Insurance
  • Brush up on my Spanish
  • Meet with my friend who studied in Lima last spring
  • Sign up for the PUCP compañero program (kinda like OU cousins)
  • Call/email OU Med and make sure I’m caught up on paperwork, etc.
  • Re-make my budget
  • Visit  with the OU Scholars, parents and sister, and other friends before I leave
  • See the new Alice in Wonderland movie coming out March 5th!

The list is long, but it definitely helps to make one when a smooth trip depends on so many factors.

    Hi, Bobbi –

    With that type of to-do list, there’s no wonder you were admitted into Med School! I’m glad that you plan to see Depp’s newest movie before leaving. We’ll touch base before you go. Here’s wishing you a great time in Peru!
