I early-voted this morning, because tomorrow I’m leaving on a jet plane and not coming back until I’ve seen England, Italy, Greece, and Turkey — or at least small samples thereof.
I’m nervous. It’s been a while since I’ve taken a trip this long, and I’ve never done a multi-stage thing like this, not that I recall. I had to make a second stack of Things To Be Packed, for kniedzw to luggage up and bring to Rome next week.
No doubt I’ve forgotten something. (You always do.) But my father will be smug; for possibly the first time since I got out from under his thumb enough to avoid it, I made an honest-to-god written list of everything I needed to bring. Yes, Dad, you win.
London trip-blogging to follow. Cruise-blogging will be dependent on how obscenely flagellant the Internet prices are on board the ship. Worst-case scenario: I’ll see y’all again in June.
