We are going to Ireland in four days, and so far, all I have packed are the Poppets coming along for the ride.
The camera bag is half-packed. The suitcase has a pile of socks next to it. Batteries are nearly charged. Clothes, not selected.
Passport, tickets, extra ID, secreted in special passport case which I have already misplaced three times between two rooms. Imagine the possibilities when I have all of Europe beneath me.
I can barely believe this trip is happening after so many years of wishing, hoping, longing to go.
Poppets are ready.
