So if you're wondering what the next 24 hours might have in store for me, here's the story. We fly from Bloomington to Detroit (much to my father's chagrin who apparently hates the Detroit airport), and then from Detroit to Rome
. We should arrive in Rome Wednesday morning, and then get from Rome airport to Rome train station where we will take a train to Ancona, a port city in Italy. We will spend the night there, and then depart for Split, Croatia Thursday morning. If all goes well I will be on a ferry crossing the Adriatic Sea in just 36 hours or so. I love ferries, especially ones that are big enough they don't make me sick to my stomach (this one is) and that are going from one beautiful place (Italy) to another beautiful place (Croatia) across a beautiful blue sea :-) There you have it. I think that's enough detail to even please my mom!
This will probably be my last blog entry with few typos and grammatical errors. It is a little harder to type these things on foreign computers or mobile devices. I am taking my iPad on this trip, and I am quite excited as my bag is much lighter now that I don't have to haul around the 7 books I will probably read while I'm on this trip. Kindle app for iPad rocks!!
So I hope you enjoy the blog!!
I am officially all ready to go!! Just kidding :-) I still have 4 hours before Trent is picking me up, so I think I have procrastinated an adequate amount, and I can now prepare for the trip. I am trying to pack extra light for this trip since I will be carrying everything I will need for 14 days on my back. I think I've done pretty well. It is always hard at the last minute not throwing about 50 extra things in just in case. My biggest goal is to always have a lighter bag than Trent, but his is pretty streamlined this trip, so who knows. I was going to work this morning, but I just can't bring myself to do it. Instead I got one last cappuccino at the Coffee Hound, and I'm writing my first blog entry.
