Getting ready...

3 weeks from today I head to Southern Europe for the beginning of my trip.  I wrapped up work this week and the focus now is packing up my place, finalizing travel details, tying up loose ends, and spending as much time as possible with friends and family.

I will have wi-fi access pretty much everywhere the first 3 months so email will be the best way to reach me, and I'm going to try my best to keep this blog updated as a I travel. I also discovered that I can send email to text so you may get some of those here and there.  Phone-wise, I am not going to have an international plan in Southern Europe so if you feel you will miss my voice terribly, set up a Skype account and download Skype mobile to your cell phone. My skype name is nancy_georgy to find me/add me as a contact.

Huge thanks to everyone who is letting me put my stuff in their attics and basements.  Between selling a few things to the neighbor who is moving into my place, and my awesome friends storing things for me, I have completely eliminated the need to pay for a storage unit while I'm traveling. Living in a studio apartment = less stuff.  And in even bigger news (for those of you who grew up with me) we actually cleaned out my parents garage *gasp* and I'm storing my car there.

That's all I have for now.  Off to get my extra passport pictures and international driver's license....
