Well, the day has finally arrived. I am packed and ready to go to the airport and tomorrow at this time I will be in bellissima Venezia! Io sono molto entusiastica! I am so excited! I thought I was traveling light by taking one medium bag but it still weighs almost 50 pounds. I will have to drastically reduce some of the weight for flying within Italy as the limits are less. Vediamo. We’ll see.
I am excited and also a little nervous, mostly because of the weather. Rain is expected and I am hoping for no delays or I may not make the connection in Atlanta, due to Delta adjusting the flight time. Well this is the start of an adventure, and I am quite sure that in the next three months, my life will change. I know I will miss my family but thanks to Skype and Face Time and e-mail, it is all good. I am also quite sure that not everything will go smoothly but this is life and I am ready for it. I realize that I am fortunate to be going on this kind of trip and that I am truly living the dream.
Look for postings and photos soon from Italia!
