Rome. Sicily. Greece and the Aegean Sea. That is where my son is off to -- for eleven days. This trip is supposedly 'educational' -- planned by the Art and History departments of his high school. (Hell, the only trips I took in high school were down to the Principal's office.)
He has worked and paid the freight for the trip (over the past two and a half years). He will see places at eighteen I will likely never see in (what's left of) my life. I'm proud of him. And I hope he has the time of his life.
Nick: remember to pack toilet paper, Imodium, and Gravol. (And keep some brass handy for tips.)
I'm looking forward to seeing the daily group pictures your teachers post on the tour site. Have a blast, man. It will be the trip of a lifetime.
