Don't you wish you were on board?
An open ticket. Some old guide books, especially those Blue Guides that take hours to read. Just so you can astonish the woman sitting next with to you with your knowledge of the arcane symbols in an Etruscan tomb. A new camera and the old film one you've had since you were a kid, partner of all your adventures. Maps you've been saving for years. A sturdy notebook, the pen your mother gave you. A bota bag filled with good local wine. Comfortable shoes (I'm older now). A window seat . . .
