Under 24 hours before I travel out to Rome for the beginning of this year's Cruise Trek! Work is about 90% complete and now my mind is shifting from classroom materials to packing materials. With Italy, Morocco, Portugal and Spain on the horizon I have extra camera  batteries ready to capture the moments. Still undecided about bringing my computer but AT&T iPhone charges for uploading photos over the wireless are about $20 per photo/post.  What to do?

And how did so many electronics make their way into needing a separate bag? At least weight lifting can be crossed off my on-board ship gym list.

Keeping my fingers crossed for an upgrade and no middle seat!
