And the icing on the cake is the arrival of our cruise tickets in the mail yesterday.
It’s beginning to feel like the trip is real. I experience this before every trip. Despite all the planning and anticipation it doesn’t quite feel like it’s real — like I can’t really be going on this fabulous trip. Can I *really* be going to Istanbul next month? But the closer it gets and as the days tick by on my Google countdown clock I start to feel like I am in fact lucky enough to be going to the Mediterranean and Provence … next month!
