#SOL17 Day 19: Packing for Paradise

Packing for Paradise - a Poem by the Numbers

5 days until we leave
5 time zones away
12 hours by plane
2 days of travel
Tahiti, here we come

20 years to celebrate
6 years of saving
18 months of planning
5 days of giddy anticipation
6 days in paradise

1 huge suitcase
1 bag for the plane
3 swimsuits
0 sweaters
11 books - is that enough?

    1. Yep. And It's actually 12. My copy of Jason Reynolds' As Brave As You is with my daughter because he visited her school and autographed it for me!!

  3. Books and zero sweaters - love those parts!

    Just curious - why not digital books? 11 books have got to be heavy to carry!

    1. Great question! I usually just bring my Kindle, but most of these books were either gifts, or are going into my classroom library for my students when I'm done.

  11. Wahoo! Sounds like a trip you have waited for! I am sure you will enjoy it. I have never been to that part of the world (yet). 12 books MAY be enough;)
