This morning I got up for work. My first thought was “THREE WEEKS UNTIL VACATION!!!!”. While getting my morning iced coffee out of the refrigerator, I noticed a fortune cookie that was leftover from last weekend. I opened it and got THIS:
My trip is so soon and I am still not ready. Today I have decided to redo my itinerary again. This is all because I can not find out if the Nis, Serbia bus station has luggage lockers. I had planned to stop there for a few hours between Sarajevo and Sofia. If i take a chance and leave my trip the way its been cemented in for weeks now, I may find myself carrying my bag around sightseeing. The internet tells me nothing. So here I am right now taking a break from going nutso and redoing my itinerary to switch out the “stop there for a few hours” part with “spend one night in Nis”. Then I have to find a night in Bulgaria to give up so that I have a night to spend there. I really need to consider booking more flexible trips, where I don’t insist upon seeing so much at one shot, so that I do have spare days. But I dont want to, because I want to see every inch of planet earth right NOW.
So my updated upcoming travels are now:
April 26 – May 20 – Europe
May 22 – May 27 – Seattle, WA
May 29 – June 3 – Austin, TX
June 6 – June 9 – combo of Chicago and Toronto.
I am the opposite of a fan of my job. But I will admit that I am in love with both the amount of vacation time I get, as well as the fact that they let me take it all in a row like this. Most places would not.
