Usually, I pack about a week ahead of time and then spend a week second guessing my packing. So this time I thought, “no way! Just take a couple of days and poof! Done!”

Didn’t quite work out.

Actually, I’m done packing now, but felt rushed. However, it only took about a day and a half. It’s hard to pack for the next two months of your life.

But now, “a brick is out of the backpack” as it were. One stress-inducing element of this trip is done. Now I get to look forward to two months of teaching, playing, and traipsing about Europe!
