Come along as we start our journey to the South Pacific, including Australia, New Zealand, a quick stop in Fiji, and then on to Honolulu. Posted are some photos from an earlier trip, but stay tuned! There will be lots more to share!

It happened...wonder of wonders...I have packed, but not without some drama! Mission accomplished...well, almost, anyway! Most things have been placed in luggage with just a few stragglers pulling on my heartstrings yelling, "Take me! Take me!". It's so hard to leave them behind...maybe just one more shirt! :)
Of course, I had to make some difficult decisions that I hope I will not live to regret! Now, I'm on the computer battling the age old questions: should I bring a hairdryer or trust the ones in the hotels? Do I have enough clothes for all the varying temps? Do I have too many? (most likely answer here is , "yes!") Am I listening to my own advice of, "This is not a fashion show, people!" Answer: "No!" Don't let it be said that I am not self aware!
One of the challenges: The temperatures in NJ have made it quite difficult to imagine being chilly and needing warm clothes, but pack them I did! Keeping in mind that I am not leaving the planet, I figure all will be well! Flexibility, innovation, a solid sense of humor and a bit of creativity ought to get me through any "wardrobe malfunctions" so it's off we go! Enough already!
Inside of @38 hours, we will be on our way! WooHoo! Life is good!
