It’s finally departure day! All my bags are packed up and through security. Now it’s time to just wait at the gate for the flight. To my surprise, I actually packed very strategically and lighter than most.
Since I was one of the first to arrive, I got through check-in and security pretty quickly and got to say hello to the earlier group flight. They left at 3:45, and we are scheduled to leave at 5:45.
Most of the students on this trip go to Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, Penn State, and Syracuse. I knew most of people from Indiana on the trip and have met a bunch of the Michigan kids that I have a lot of mutual friends with.
Now we’re all just waiting for our flight. Then we’re landing in Rome and transferring to a flight for Florence!
