T-minus 5 days to Italy 2017
5 days to go. Wow, this is coming up quick. As I sit here and print my hotel booking for Paris, I realize that there is one other thing I want to do and that is determining how we are going to get from the airport to the hotel. I realize that there are trains and cabs and all these types of transit, but I know that I will be tired as hell and won't want to think about navigating from the airport to the hotel. I want to come up with a plan now so that I'm prepared when the time comes.
I looked back on the last trip and saw that last year at this time, I said a few things. Washing clothes for the trip, identifying what will go with you, building a packing list... these are all on the to-do's for this time before a trip. That being said, I kept it short and sweet then, so I can do the same now.
Bottom line: wash your clothes, make a list, DON'T PACK YOUR STUFF YET! That is about the best advice I have. Right now, I'm watching Something's Gotta Give to get more excited about Paris (especially since Le Grand Colbert is on the destinations list) and making sure that I have my ducks in a row from the transportation side of the house.
