Here and There


9 hours till Europe. Head has been swirling for weeks. I'll be abroad but I won't be gone. But I realized today that only 3 of the first 20 bloggers who I started with are still around.

To send us both off I'll give you a peek inside my backpack:

Apple video ipod 30 gig. Black cuz that's how I roll. And don't forget to load that baby with My Generation in french by Chapaumelon.

Lonely Planet Europe with the pages to Austria, Ireland, Switzerland, Cyprus, Andora, and many others torn out and disposed of.

Le Sportsac.... I was not alive when this thing was fabricated.

Moleskin Notebook (large and pocket size. Next best thing to batteries and wires.

Travel size toiletries.

Emergen-C (kicks jet lag's ass).

Cannon elf camera of some kind (can you say lost and found?).

30 in Euro's saved from 3 years ago when I promised myself that I would return to Europe (not worth as much as when I bought them).

Podcasts to help me not die in Morocco, Turkey and Serbia.

Raquet ball for everything from fun to laundry.

15 days over 2 months Eurail Pass.

Good luck necklace tarnished from to much luck rubbing.

Light Reading: Dostoyevski, Hemmingway, DeLillo etc.

Europe map plotting a course from England to Belgium to Netherlands to Germany to France to Portugal to Spain to Morocco to Italy to Greece to Turkey to Bulgaria to Romania to Hungary to Slovakia to Czech Republic to Poland to Sweden to England to the rest of my life. See you there.
