I didn't want to post here until I had everything officially in place. And that all happened all at once. I handed in my visa papers on Thursday afternoon late. This weekend past, I got my beautiful Welcome Pack from Bill and Kristi from Adventures in Italy. And first thing this morning, I got a message that my visa was ready! WHAT!!!! That was record time!!! But now I can relax into the next two months of waiting... all I have left to do is get my travel card, art supplies, luggage and packing! Eeeck!
But I am happy to say all the major things are done! All the big things that make this trip possible or not.
I'm celebrating tonight!!!!
