Well, I have been busy playing the tetris game of packing my carry on and while I am doing a footsteps of Jane holiday I am alas unable to bring the Austen books I have remaining with me due to carryon weight restrictions. My flight leaves today at 6:45 PM PST [18:45 PST]. I am packed and eager to go, despite not being very comfortable when I fly, world traveler that I am. I am bringing a travel journal in order to record my thoughts and also to serve as a reference when I am showing people my pictures. So I will now finish my breakfast before grabbing some more batteries at the store and then head off to the airport because as the iconic song says : I'm leaving on a jet plane.
