So Long, Farewell!!

We're out!! We are sitting at Erica's waiting to go to the airport. It's been an exhausting last couple days...but well worth it :) 

Here's some photos of the progression of our apartment:
Living Room:

How it was
Packing packing

Most of the stuff gone on Saturday

Last day :)
Other side of the living room:

Our bed on the last night...air mattresses are the worst!!

The bedroom:

Wompa wa.
( two bags!! Well, also I have a backpack for my computer :D)

So, my initial plan was to take ONLY carry on. In reality, this was a bit ambituous for a novice world traveler ;) I'm pretty proud of the clothes that I have chosen...everything is well matched and can easily be mixed and matched with each other. I have a color theme!! But, when I went to put it in the bag...oh my gosh. Not even close!! Thank God Preston saved the day. He's taking a traditional backpacker's pack. It's I'm not sure it can be deemed a carry on :-/, but because of that...I was able to use his 2nd bag (a small duffle back pack) as spill over from my bag.

I'm suuurrreee I could have eliminated a lot of things. Truthfully...I feel like I'm taking too much. But, as I's hard as a novice traveler to imagine living in 2 long sleeved shirts for 4-6 months :D I just didn't WANT to get rid of anything else. I guess we'll see if I regret it :)
