Getting Nervous

We have the absolutely incredible opportunity to go to Israel for eight days (not including travel).  So far I've been great- no nerves, just that vague thrill of excitement that comes when a trip is far away.

Now I'm getting freaked out- in that super excited but oh-no-what-am-I-forgetting? 

We ended up spending $35 today (ouch) on a travel alarm clock and a voltage converter for charging our appliances.  While we thought we could get away without the voltage converter, we ultimately decided it wasn't worth risking the more expensive Kindle Fire to save $25.

This does mean I can bring my cell phone.  We're planning on going to check on long distance texting costs- I realize that International calls will be entirely too expensive, but hopefully we can send a few "We're here and not dead" texts to family members without going broke.

I can't wait to go, but it's going to be so different from anything I've ever experienced- my first time out of country! Eeek!
