And the countdown begins...

In exactly one week, I am finally going on my well deserved VACATION!!

I am so happy I could cry.

Like I said in my last posting, my brother is graduating from college in a little over 2 weeks and I am going. The cool thing is that he goes to school in London so my vacation begins a week from now getting aboard the
Queen Mary 2 for seven days of luxury and fun that culminate in Southampton, England. Woo Hoo!

Although most of the trip is going to be very family oriented, I am expecting to have a fabulous time because I do plan to get away from them at some point. I am like a one woman U.N. I have friends EVERYWHERE and it’s important for me to catch up with them. I’m particularly looking forward to seeing Daniela and Anastasia. It’s been a while since I’ve caused any kind of trouble with either of those two.

After London, I am supposed to be going to Budapest for a few days. For this I will probably end up calling in dead for work, but it’ll be worth it. The rest of my family has planned to take advantage of what my mom calls “the 20 minutes of peace” and go to Jerusalem and Palestine. I would like to go, but were I to go, I’d want to explore and catch up with a few friends who live there so to go for a few days seems like a waste.

I am so happy. Traveling rocks!

…and to think that only 20% of Americans have a passport and only like half of them actually use them…

If you're going to call in dead, I just hope your boss doesn't read your blog...

That is cool.. Have a nice time.

And the passport thing reminds me of a funny anecdote. I was ready to come back to India from US and had put the moving sale notice in my office. So this female colleague of mine who came to inquire about the furniture actually asked me "So are you going to drive down to India?"

That was one time I had to try extra hard to hide my natural reaction.

i'm lucky that i get to use my passport from time to time, but i have NEVER been on a cruise (the Nova Scotia/Prince Edward Isles ferry doesn't count, right? It does have a casino, i think...)

Sounds like you're going to have a blast! I'm totally jealous. I'm one of those americans without any passport at all. Sad, I know.
