So – the day has finally arrived after months of planning and waiting impatiently. We are pretty much packed up and ready to roll, just doing a few last-minute things before suiting up and lugging our baggage downstairs.
I am very excited about this trip – this will be the longest road trip I have taken for about 35 years, I think. And we are visiting new areas that neither of us have seen before. I have wanted to see the Italian lakes for a long time, and to go over the St Bernard pass, and to do a whole bunch more things that I have not had the opportunity to do before.
It is Lena’s birthday on the 19th, and I have a surprise in store for her. I will reveal more at the time, but I am looking forward to it, too.
Okey Doke, we are off to get suited and booted – see you later.
