Let’s face it, travel is work. There’s the packing. What to bring? What’s the weather in Italy? How many outfits? How many days? Do you need converters? Covid tests? Did you leave enough Dog food? What about emergency numbers?
Man, it’s a lot to think about. And there’s always something that distracts from the goal: “getting out of dodge”!
Today as I sat on my luggage to zip it up, I thought, if I forgot it I don’t need it! Don’t even ask what’s in the bag. Just don’t. Because I packed and unpacked so many times that I truly don’t have no idea what made the final cut. I know some of my readers understand, I see you nodding your heads.
My travel partner, Mark Joe Cool, is an anxious traveler. This is just a known. Nearly 30 years together and I totally prepare my self for his silent, focused, short temperament. He is terrific once we get on the flight but until then I duck and cover. Today he was Lazer focused on the suitcase locks and new passwords. I left him alone. Important to choose your battles.
My partner Steve is driving us to Logan Airport.
He calls himself our “St-Uber”.
