I am a master packer!

We will be gone from July 3rd-July 18th; 16 days in total. Clothes for the two of us for the entire trip assuming we will not be able to do laundry, including a suit for B and my wedding dress (and fancy shoes) for the formal nights on the boat, polo shirts and fancy pants for both of us for regular dinner nights on the boat, sandals and walking shoes for both of us, bathing suits, 3 cameras (2 photo 1 video), binoculars, 8 books, toiletries, a jacket, my laptop:

1 medium sized suitcase
1 carry-on sized suitcase
1 backpack (regular backpack not a crazy camping backpack)

plus we packed another backpack sized bag folded up into the backpack in case we need another bag to bring back gifts in. Packing Skills FTW!

We drop off Barkley at a friend's place at 9:30am. We leave for the airport at 9pm. We arrive in Rome on Saturday at 10am, their time.

I probably won't have internet until at least Wednesday when we board the cruise. Also, we got an upgrade to a room with a balcony!! On the back of the boat! So we can sit on our private balcony and watch the wake and all the countries floating by!

So excited! This time tomorrow I'll be on a plane!


  1. Have a safe trip and don't forget to make us jealous by showing us your kofer honeymoon pics! ;)

  2. You are so very lucky. But why 8 books on a honeymoon? Save those for your 50th anniversary.
    I'm sure Ms. Moon means well, but I would have to say "there ain't a whole lotta things I haven't done, but I ain't never had too much fun". Be Well.

  3. well we are, and it's only 4 books each, and we'll be gone for more than 2 weeks. :) Plus we have 12 hours of flights each way and two days at sea!

    We're in detroit now hanging in the fancy first class lounge that has free wireless (as guests of my in-laws). We have like 5 hours till our next flight that goes to Rome :)

  4. I hope you're having an amazing time!!! Can't wait to see pics :o)

  5. AE I just got back from a three week trip to Spain and Israel and for the first time in my life I had only carry on luggage - not checking bags is a dream and I definitely recommend it.
