Well, not quite yet, but whatever. I am actually in the process of getting all my shit together (literally – as in getting my stuff together – and figuratively – as in trying to stay calm and collected because as always before I leave the office for a longer period of time, I was working late. Today was no different!)
In about 24 hours, I’ll be on the plane. To be honest, my head is not really there yet, but my heart makes up for it. I am so excited! I am so ready for some time off.
I wish I had those three beautiful, vintage suitcases to travel with… oh, wouldn’t that be such a delight? The reality is, Lufthansa decided to restrict luggage to one piece (50lbs.) a person. This, my friends, is ridiculous. One suitcase for a three week vacation? How am I supposed to take everything I want need when I only have 50lbs available space? Not to mention that my suitcase is actually too big (I bought it when 70lbs was still allowed) and I can’t even fill it up (which means my stuff is flying around in there while I travel). Just marvelous.
Anyway, it’s late, I am tired and I really can’t think straight anymore after a 14-hour day, but the good news is that I don’t have to go into the office tomorrow morning (like I had originally planned).
I’ll be going to sleep in, we’ll go out for a nice breakfast/lunch and I’ll get to relax a bit before heading to the airport in the afternoon. (Did I mention that I love red-eye flights when going transatlantic? It’s the perfect way to beat the jet-lag!)
As you can see, I’ll be kicking off my vacation in grand style :)
