Where I stayed
I've decided to set up the blog on this nifty new travel blog site instead of my usual blogspot page. I like the handy, dandy little "pins" that show where I'm at. Kinda gives my readers a better feel for where I'm at in the world. Not that you didn't probably already know where Paris & Rome are located on a map. But whatever. I like it. So shall you.
I have practice-packed. Twice.
The first time, I realized the backpack that I was borrowing (thanks Rich & Kelly!) was much too large. Funny, since I'm a girl and, you'd think, would want to take as many clothes as possible.
The second time, it was perfect. I got a second loaner backpack (thanks Brackens!) that is perfect for the amount of items I need to take. Plus, it's carry-on size. Now, I no longer have dreams (nightmares, really) about the airline losing my luggage after checking it.
I do, however, continue to have dreams about getting to Europe and forgetting my camera. Or tennis shoes. Or Tina.
One recent one was that we left from a convenience store. A shuttle bus came to pick us up & take us to Europe. We had been waiting inside the convenience store; it had a school-gym locker room in the back. We had showered there & were dripping wet in our towels when the bus came. We had to go to Europe in our towels or miss the bus.
Damn that would suck.
