Eleven days until Departure.

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.
But no.  I'd rather take as little as possible.  Less to keep track of.  More importantly, less to potentially lose or be stolen.

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.
