The totally unprepared international traveller 
20th-Apr-2012 08:52 am
Tomorrow morning Daniel and I are heading to Paris for a week. Daniel's father has once again arranged a visiting professorship in a fabulous location, so we're going to visit. (I was just trying to remember the last time I planned a significant trip that didn't revolve around a science fiction convention or visiting relatives. If it weren't for fandom and family, I'd never go anywhere.)

I've been so swamped trying to get things at work in to a state where I feel like I can leave them for a week that I haven't thought about the trip nearly as much as I normally would. I'd feel unprepared, but I've got my passport, I've got a phone that will allegedly work in Paris, and we've got a place to stay. And I'm mostly packed. What could possibly go wrong? (Don't answer that.)

I'm not sure exactly what my internet access situation will be like, but I expect updates will be thin until I get back. See you all in May!

A passport is all you need! And any medications, says this allergy-prone girl. You don't need to prepare for Paris. It will happen TO you.

If you get the chance, I recommend visiting St. Chapelle as well as Notre Dame. Beautiful stained glass there. And if you do Notre Dame, climbing to the top is worth it to see the gargoyles. Oh, and my favorite museum is Musee d'Orsay--good if you like Impressionists. :)

That's how I felt right before I went to China. You'll be fine.

Bon voyage!

Have an awesome trip! I am containing my jealousy. ;)
