Travel Stamp

Pre-Trip Jitters?

We leave for France tomorrow and I’m a bit antsy. I’ve been planning for this trip for so long that I’m ready for it to just get started.

Last night I had a little anxiety dream about the trip (the only bit I’ve felt so far). In the dream it was our first day in Paris and we’d been going around having a great time when, around 4pm, I suddenly realized we were meant to meet the apartment guy at noon, and now where were we going to sleep. I immediately hopped on the metro to set off for the apartment only to realize I didn’t know where I was going. So I began digging around in my bag for my metro map. The first one I pulled out was for the NY subway, and the second for something else entirely. It dawned on me that I had brought no map at all and now I was really screwed.

And then I woke up and realized how ridiculous the dream was. We would have noticed that we were still schlepping around or backpacks and I would never have not packed a map. I’m very well prepared for this trip and expect it all to go very smoothly.

I’ll keep you updated, though, if it should not.
