Not a moment too soon

So welcome to my travel blog. In exactly two weeks I will be jetting over the Atlantic... or perhaps somewhere a little less exciting like Minnesota. Needless to say, I can't wait. I was originally going to leave the 30th, but I changed my ticket. This means I'll miss some exciting and important events in Bakersfield (like the HP releases and Paul and Christina's wedding) but it also means I won't sit around all summer feeling sorry for myself, plus I will have more time to travel, so the balance tips. On a related note, can I just say how much I love STA? It only cost $35 to change my ticket. Of course, I had to drive all the way to Westwood to do it because it was a paper ticker, but that's really Air New Zealand's fault.

Anyway, I'm really excited. I just booked flights to Poland for the new leg of my trip. I haven't researched or planned or thought about this nearly as much as I have my original plan, so it will be a bit more improptu, but I can't think that will matter since I usually abandon travel plans anyway. So I think I will wander around Poland a bit and then decide whether to head to Romania or the Czech Republic. (probably Romania since I am poor) And since I have an extra week on the second leg, I might head over to Bulgaria after Croatia. But who knows! I am starting to reconnect with old travel buddies and friends so it should be a really great trip. All I have to worry about now is getting my visa before I leave! All I have left to do for that is prove I won't be a burden on the state and that I have enough money for a year of fees and living expenses... hahaha...
