Hitting the road

As of tomorrow, I will be on the road for a couple of weeks, before settling in to our temporary home in Rome.  So blogging will be intermittent, maybe non-existent, and commenting might be too.   Just rest assured I will be back.

And in the meantime, I will try to post to my specific trip blog here.

Right now, the evening before we leave, I am feeling stressed:

  • Office not tidy
  • House still to be cleaned
  • Pile of ironing to do
  • Bags packed but overweight, and I really don't want to take out those shoes but probably have to
  • Suffering from lack of sleep already, even before we set off tomorrow on a 25 hour, three-flight trip

This is the storm before the calm.  I hope.  I cannot imagine doing all this with a child.  (Head is about to explode as it is.)

Au revoir, adios, cheerio, and ciao!


  1. Travel well, my friend. I look forward to any and all your posts.

  2. Have a safe and fulfilling trip...enjoy making lots and lots of memories in different places! :-D

  3. We are off for our trip tomorrow too! It hadn't crossed my mind, until reading your post just now, about how much more I would be stressed if we had a kid to pack for too. Have a great trip!!

  4. dear Mali,
