Head First

Today, it hit me. Summer. Is. Ending.

I have yet to pack. In fact, I should most likely locate my suitcase to begin with. But I am ready. I went to the drugstore two days ago and bought a four-month supply of diarrhea medication and supplies for when Mother Nature hits in France.

So, instead of getting physically prepared, I found a few friends and stuck my head out of a tram window (photo cred: Nicholle Yu // Salmon // Fish), which I can now use as a metaphor for my leaping head first into my next adventure. I am so stoked to be flying out to France tomorrow with my dad. We’ll be flying into Marseille and staying in the Ecrins National Park area to hike for three days before I take a train into Aix and meet my host family!

In the meantime. If anyone has packing tips for France. I would appreciate them within the next twelve hours.
