Leaving for Roma
Whoo hoo! Fifty degrees in Wisconsin in January?!!? Feels like good traveling weather. And what a day it is. I’m leaving for Rome!
Alright, so I’ve got a few hours before the fam and I leave for Chicago. How would I describe the morning so far? HECTIC! What a surprise. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Actually, I’m pretty positive that I’m not. Hectic includes finishing the FAFSA with my dad, going to Half Price Books to see if I can buy some novels for my “Society and Literature” class, making sure I have all of my prescription medicines, and syncing my Ipod.
But it’s also LOVING. I woke up this morning to find my Facebook wall loaded with messages of love and support. This is a big adventure. The last time I was out of the country was in 2009 when I went and stayed with family in Germany for two weeks. This is not a two week vacation! Where is my Harper Collins Survival Guide:Italy?
Anyway, time is ticking away and I am so excited. I have run out of words and am eager to experience life abroad. I’m just ready to get to O’Hare and be amongst the travelers who have, what I call, the “Traveler Fever”. It’s that oober anxious, nervous, sometimes impatient, and eager feeling for one to go to their destination that permeates through the air is contagious to anyone that steps within the airport. The Traveler Fever even makes those not flying yearn for a little bit of travel. Ooooh, bring it on.
Oh boy, I have to get moving. It’s time to get the luggage in the trunk, passport in the backpack, granola bar in the pocket, and get some water to the brain. Here I come O’Hare. Next stop, Heathrow Airport! Can you say, “Love Actually?” Ha ha yes. Enjoy reading!
