Moving day!

It's here: I'm moving to London. RIGHT NOW.
I'm currently sitting at the IcelandAir terminal at SeaTac airport, waiting to board shortly. I had an insanely busy night and morning, packing, unpacking, repacking, and checking my luggage weights with the ever-faithful "make my brother weigh himself and then hold my suitcase while standing on the scale" method. Thankfully, each of my bags were .2lbs under the limit, so I incurred no unfortunate luggage fees.
I made it through security with my backpack, camera bag, purse, and two coats with the pockets stuffed with no problem. 
When I got to the other side, my shoe broke. The zipper came totally off on my favorite pair of boots (They've come with me to every country!), leaving me shoe-less. I took out the shoelace and wrapped it around my ankle to hold the boot in place.
Now, I'm sweaty, hot, anxious, and all-around ready to be at my final destination. Things are crazy, but they're moving forward, and that's what I need.
So, I'm going to go hop on a couple flights, and I'll catch up with all of you on the other side of the pond! 

Pin It!

  5. Thank you so much! I made it! Feeling much more relaxed now; though I'm particularly disappointed my layover in Reykjavik couldn't happen!
