Ah, the difference a year makes. Or 11 months, at least. Last August I was also headed to Sweden, back then on a work trip to visit a company we had recently acquired. Tomorrow we take the same set of flights, but this time as the first leg of our 11 week European exploration.
We've managed to pack all three of us into just 2 checked bags and 3 carry-ons, which was no small feat given that we're expecting weather ranging all the way from snow (yes, it's in the forecast for one of the towns we're visiting in Norway), to sunny Santorini. Not easy to pack for 3 people for that range in just 2 bags. But it's done! And no busted zippers!
In 12.5 hours we depart Austin. On to Europe!
