Europe! Oh, Europe

Monday: last rays of sunlight

Time! It has passed so quickly.
It feels like just yesterday I was telling you, bursting with excitement, about this trip to Europe that Craig and I are taking. Now I am telling you, bursting with excitement and anxiety*, that the trip is TOMORROW.
In just a few hours we will be on our way to Auckland, then to Singapore, and finally, many many hours later, in London.

I feel so unprepared.
It feels like this trip has snuck up on me. There is so much and so little planned. We have tickets for the Vatican and the Uffizi and the Tate Modern and the National Portrait Gallery and all our accommodation and flights and trains are booked. I have an entire folder full of documentation for this trip and yet … I feel unprepared.

Mainly though I am just ever so excited.
(I am secretly quite looking forward to the hours we have in Changi airport, I have heard it is amazing)

My laptop, geriatric beast that it is, will be staying in Wellington.
I will have my iPad and, fingers crossed, Wi-Fi in hotels, but chances are there will be radio silence on for a while.

More than that, the photos from my beautiful baby camera will likewise wait until our return.

But! I will have instagram, uploaded when Wi-Fi allows. My username is ohsarahrose (quelle surprise!) and they will be posted to as well.

But perhaps I will still ramble here from time to time. Who knows.

* I’m pretty sure that nothing terrible will happen. But I can’t help the Jenny Holzer feeling.
“Some days you wake and immediately start to worry. Nothing in particular is wrong, it’s just the suspicion that forces are aligning quietly & there will be trouble” From the Living Series, Bench 16
