Taking Off

I'm about to embark on my first excursion abroad with STUDENTS! The fact that I'm returning to Italy and France has yet to dawn on me. Instead I'm consumed with thoughts about passports and young people packing too much and sleep deprived teenagers trying to appreciate the grandeur of the Colosseum.

Wait, I get to see the Colosseum again.


I have no idea what this experience is going to be like. Backpacking with Bryan was fun and a little scary but I was so relieved to be a college graduate that I didn't dwell too much on the "what ifs..."

Now I have, along with my fellow chaperones, 23 young people relying on me to get them to Rome tomorrow.

There are so many "what ifs."
