Kdogg and I bought out tix to southeast Asia yesterday. We did it simultaneously on the phone, so as to better plan our arrival. The idea was that we could trip out at the newness of the place together by meeting up in the Bangkok airport and then beginning our journey from there as a unit.
So we perfectly timed out ticket-getting so that I'll just have an hour-long wait before she arrives, and then on the return, our flights leave within two hours of one another. Somehow, she thinks something went awry, because now we are arriving within eight hours of one another instead of one. Details, though.
The fact is we have our TICKETS and this means this trip is becoming a reality. I can't believe it! I'm so excited! Enough so that I actually used some exclamation points! Repeatedly!
So it's settled: June 21-July 27, 2004. This will be the voyage. I'm sure you'll hear all about it.
And yes, right now is time for finals, so what better time to spend hours and hours on the internet researching travel options? We've altered our route a bit (mainly to avoid a certain area where our malaria pills won't work) and thus need to check out other options. That sounds like a perfect study distraction to me.
