This time tomorrow I’ll be halfway between Perth and KL, on my way to Rome. Rome! I can’t quite comprehend it. I think I’ll be wondering around the whole time thinking “this is so surreal”… It might be that I haven’t had enough time to think about it – I’ve had 50 million things to do right up until the last minute. I handed in an essay tonight, and I’ve got to finish off another for tomorrow, and I had to organise insurance and rail passes and all sorts of stuff.
So anyway, I think I’m all ready, apart from the essay and the packing. I’ve got all sorts of supplies – a couple of books to read, and a book of 365 sudoku puzzles for planes and trains, and a coin purse to carry my gelato money so that I don’t have to get my wallet out for a snack, and all sorts of things. And I’m taking knee braces and sports tape and nurofen for my dodgy joints. I’ve probably got heaps of stuff I don’t need. But I don’t think I’ve got any really stupid stuff on my list. I suppose I’ll have to wait and see.
Um… yeah. So. Exciting!
More news later… From Rome! OMG, Rome!
