Well...

I'm pretty sure I've got everything under control, apart from my usual pre-trip jitters

We're 47 days out now, eveything that can be prepaid is sorted, but I can't seem to shake the feeling that I've forgotten something Wonder how long it will be until I start having the holiday dreams, you know the ones - at the airport with no passports, stuck in traffic on way to airport, lost money, etc

I bought a new suitcase today

Also received an email from Virgin America about a flight change - only 10 minutes later luckily.

I WILL buy the travel insurance this afternoon...gotta stop procrastinating on that one.

I thought I was the only one who had the pre-holiday dreams - although mine are usually about us forgetting to go any rides until the last minute and having to cram everything in.

So I was getting a quote on travel insurance today but I was stumped when it asked me the period of cover. Do I put today's date as I wish to be covered for unexpected cancelation and my flights are already paid for, or do I put in the dates that we intend to be away?
I can't remember what I did last year and never needed to use it.

It's usually the date you leave home to the date you arrive home.
