Packing, so far.
Here's where I am with my packing for our two and a half month long trip. I've got to fit in a lightweight rain coat, the shoes, a couple more pieces of clothing...oh boy. I plan to take it all out, lay it on the bed, add and eliminate things. No matter what, the monkey stays. The test comes when I weigh the suitcase. It has to be under 50 pounds, and the case weighs 8 lbs. The carry on piece will have my laptop, my camera and all the various cords, plus the little stuff, like the flash drive and the card reader. The techno piece is new for me. I've never traveled with any of it before. I'm anxious about setting up the WiFi, which requires a mobile, but first I have to set up the mobile...okay...so when I'll do my first post from Paris is unknown. Hopefully, it'll only take me a couple three days. Keep your fingers crossed.
