I think I'm the luckiest girl in the world.

Friday, I checked off hike the Appalachian Trail from the bucket list. I had set an alarm to pick up a trip at 4. EDI didn't happen, nor did Starburst Strawberry water ice at Rita's but that's a different story for another time.

At 9, when I checked my schedule, there was a Milan trip on my line. MILAN. With J. I almost fell off my couch!

We went to the Duomo for the rosaries, followed by mass. They were hearing confession too. I sat in awe and wonder and practically had to pinch myself to believe I was actually there.

Then there was gelato. So delicious.
I had pistachio; J had cream and hazelnut.

We met up with a few people from the crew and had dinner at a Yelp find a few blocks away. I had pear and cheese tortellini, followed by lamb and potatoes. Tears. Of. Joy.

Considering this is my last official 'pour the cokes' trip, I am so thankful that I got to go out with quite a bang!! I have this week or so to pack and prepare for Peru, and then I'm back to being a desk jockey.

It's gonna be good.

Sandwich Time!

Glasgow is a known slam-click layover. The beds are amazing, the weather usually sucks, and there's a reasonable discount on food both restaurant and room service. Having been my second one this month, I was anticipating much of the same - M&S run and heating food up in the crew room microwave. Boy was I wrong! We had a great crew that wanted to hang out. So to keep it cheap, we decided to do build your own sandwich and bought a huge spread - deli meats, cheeses, baguettes, hummus and olives! It was amazing. Together, almost all 8 of us had dinner in the crew room and had the leftovers on the way back to Newark.

If only it was a picnic under the Eiffel Tower ;)

My mom sent me an email to say the doctors office called; I had gone to make sure I had all my shots taken care of for Peru at the end of the month.

me: "I still need hep A shot and typhoid."

Kathy: "Good times!"
