I can't believe I'll be on my way... tomorrow. The time has just flown by. This is my first trip out of the country since I was stationed in the Philippines back in the late 60s... not counting the few times Sjanna and I vacationed in Canada. As a globe traveler I'm a total noob.
I finally had my appointment with the ENT specialist last Friday. He confirmed that I had ruptured both eardrums, but they're healing well. He said my symptoms will resolve over time. At the moment my hearing is still a bit strange but getting better and my Eustachian tubes are finally open. Thankfully, it won't be painful to fly.
I've been packing for the past 2 weeks. "What to wear" is something I've never really considered. I usually wear what's comfortable, so planning for mid spring in Switzerland and Italy has been... well... I'm layering. In the middle of the clothes and stuff, I've packed a few slot cars, my entries for the MMM. I'll also be taking my Nikon and laptop so I can keep you all updated.
