- Get maps and draw routes of travel
- Brush up at least a teeny bit on my French
- Catch up on my British TV
- Mention my trip to London and Paris as many times as I possibly can
Flights booked. Hotels paid for. Chunnel trip reserved. I'm four workdays, one weekend, and a layover in Houston away from finally getting off this continent. I may be headed to the land of full-size beds, but I couldn't be more excited (unless, perhaps, I were going to the moon—and the moon had king-size beds).
I'm not sure yet whether I'll be too excited to blog or too excited not to blog, so you'll just have to wait and see.
