I can barely endure the butterflies in my stomach. It is less than two weeks before I leave. I'm a bundle of excitement and anxiousness. I have been researching and research but I'm finally to the point of release and the trip will be what it will be. I have a good idea of what I will be doing on the Côte d'Azur but Provence seems almost an after thought. I'm certain it will be fine. And as for any new area, a lot will be spent just familiarizing ourselves with the area.
I spent the weekend trying to wrap up some of the tasks I had left. I had to reserve a room in Nice for G's arrival, get a car, do a bit more of shopping for clothes and shoes. I wanted something else to wear with capri pants besides my sandals. I ended up getting a pair of Privos that everyone on Slow Travel raves about. I got the Sofritos. They are comfortable but I can already tell there isn't enough arch support for my high arches. I think they will be fine but I'm still going to bring along an insole just in case.
I also pickup a bunch of miscellaneous items like the IDL, another plug adapter, and some items for my new camera. I'm so exited about it. I got the Canon SD800is Elph. I wanted something small and lightweight to carry in my purse. It is perfect. The shots that were posted on Slow Talk convinced me. G will bring over my big camera but I think I'm going to have a lot of fun with this little camera.
I think I'm ready. I'll pack next weekend and see what I can get into my 22" rolling suitcase. I don't want to take anything else. I think I can do it.
