I've only been on a plane by myself once last spring break- a three hour ride to Texas. My flight experience was tolerable, but like many people, I'd prefer to be on solid ground. The thought of being in the air for 8 hours terrifies the bejeezes out of me! I was stocked with sleeping pills, dramamine, meditation music to help me survive, but the most powerful thing I packed was a prayer.
As soon as we were on our feet, we hit the ground running! It was morning in Italy so we had a whole day ahead of us, on top of the lack of sleep. We met our tour guide, Jordan, a representative from the organization that partners with Stockton called Study Abroad Italy (SAI). Then lugged our weary bodies and our belongings into a bus that hauled us to our first destination. The adventure begins.
