We have made tons of progress over the last few days, but still have much to do tomorrow. Our trip officially commences on Wednesday at 6:20pm with a flight to Copenhagen. We have both managed to pack our bags with all of the clothing and gear that we will need for the next four months. Hard to believe that it all fits into this bag (for me). Without the daypack (and assorted guidebooks) attached, my pack is currently weighing in at 19 pounds. I learned this afternoon that my jeans weigh 1 pound, 4 ounces. And yes, I’m taking them. My pack contains a healthy mix of my normal, trusted clothes, plus some travel-focused, quick-dry stuff for good measure. SmartWool socks, anyone? These (along with Ex Officio underwear) are all the rage on the various travel blogs/sites out there.
In other news, we would like to thank the inimitable Amy Finkel for adding a bit of flair to our blog. She crafted our header graphic last Friday evening — while still on the mend from a not insignificant bit of surgery. We consider ourselves in good company, as Amy’s recent production credits include this video that she directed for Takka Takka.
Tomorrow and Wednesday we will be focused on last-minute errands and saying some final goodbyes, but we’ll be sure to post again before our departure.
