Come Fly With Me


Tomorrow morning I hit the skys. I've been planning, packing, organising and writing lists in the hope that my departure will cause minimal disruption here. I've even written step by step instructions on how to do laundry and where to find the detergent. It is times like these that I realise why my Mr calls me "Rain Man". I just like to call it serious preparation. You'll be amazed to hear that the sum total of my packing actually fitted into a carry on sized bag! It's amazing what a little shopping motivation can do.

Here is my list of travel essentials:

Ipod - with lots of music, podcasts from my favorite bloggers and photos of my favorite people.
Sanitizing hand wash - to ward off any potential health hazards encountered en route.
Book - because inflight movies can only entertain you for so long, and when was the last time I was actually able to read a book cover to cover uninterrupted? Probably about 2004.
Headphones- My own, super sized noise canceling headphones. Perfect for great sound and No sound.
Pashmina - Because airline blankets are always nasty.
Sunglasses and Red Lipstick - For an appropriately Hollywood disembarkation.

So my friends, while my blogging may be a little sporadic in the next few weeks, you can look forward to some fantastic stories and photos along the way. Next time you see me I'll be doing it Texas style!
