Ciao, America!

My flight takes off at 5:50 this evening. I'm leaving for the airport in about an hour.

I originally thought I'd be able to get away with only bringing one checked bag and one carry on bag, but...not so much. My toiletries were putting me over the weight limit, so I'm going to bring one large checked suitcase, one small checked duffle bag, and one carry on. Not too bad considering that I'll be there for 3.5 months!

Next time I write, I'll be in Rome!

Less than one week!

It's getting so close! I'm leaving for Rome in five days...I can't believe how fast this summer has gone by.

I still need to finish packing, make copies of important paperwork and buy a bunch of little things before I leave.
