Less Than 24 Hours Left

Finally, after all the chaos due to Hurricane Irene, I'm less than 24 hours from my departure! Just finished packing up my luggage (which turned out to be 4 lbs. over the 50lb. limit...). Now that the time is this close, the excitement is just continuing to build!

My next blog entry will either be from the Newark Airport or after I arrive to the Munich Airport. Keep checking back!

Hurricane Irene is Raining on my Parade

As I'm sure most of you are aware, Hurricane Irene is in full swing along the East Coast. If you aren't, here's a beautiful photo of her:

Because of Miss Irene, my flight will most likely be delayed to Monday, possibly Tuesday if I'm incredibly unlucky. While this gives me more time to pack (even though I'm all packed at this point), it means the first few days of traveling will be a bit more chaotic than they should have been. Hopefully it won't turn out to be too bad and I'll get to Italy sooner than later.

Hopefully my next post will be either about my departure to or my arrival in Italy!

New Blog in the Making

Hello all!

In less than 5 days I will be on my flight to Florence, Italy! The blog is still a work in progress until I get to Florence. I'd like to get a new background from Italy (the current background is a photo I took in Japan). I'll be updating the blog much more once I'm in Florence, so bookmark the URL (I tried to choose an easy to remember URL... ml-firenze.blogspot.com) and keep checking back for updates.
