Vacation Approacheth

Well, the inevitable happened... the dogs got sold. What's worse is that they had to be split up. But they were both sold to people that already have dogs, so they still won't be alone. And Griffith went to a girl that already has a Yorkie. Jen and I miss them, but we have our free time back to use as we need to instead of tending to small dogs in the apartment constantly. And I made pretty good use of that time yesterday for my day off, I think... I finally started printing pictures from my trip to Ireland and Wales almost two years ago and made a photo album, like I've been meaning to do since we got back from that trip. I finished it today. So glad it's finally done and I'm pretty happy about it.

After looking at all those pictures, I am even more inspired to come up with a really great idea of how to use my October vacation... still don't know what I'm going to do, or what I can even afford to do. Would love to be able to travel alone but I'm afraid I'd just be lonely the whole time and find some way to screw something up. Would love to go somewhere new. Maybe I'll just get in my car and drive somewhere. I may not have a lot of money for a plane ticket. We shall see. I just refuse to stay here and I want to have some fun. I miss traveling and am so anxious to return to it.

Have you ever made it to Boston? I think you'd really enjoy it. I think getting in your car and going is a fabulous idea! so much fun!

Something to consider would be to join Hostelling of America or whatever it is, and then stay at some american hostels. I stayed at a fabulous one 20 miles outside of Boston (they even had single rooms). they're also oh-so-cheap, and you can meet people while you're traveling.

Nope, still never made it to Boston. And that would be the time to go, wouldn't it? Fall I mean. Hmmm... I'll have to consider that one... I'd already thought about doing it as a side trip from New York, but maybe it deserves a trip all of its own... :)

There are indeed many cool places to go within the country. And I think staying in a hostel in the country might be cool. You'd still get to hang with people from all over. I would highly recommend flying though. Decide where to go, start looking for cheap flights and then just grab one. Gas is so expensive right now and you will have more time to VACATION. Maybe you could fly in to NYC, stay with Julia a night or two and then bus over to Boston. Or something. And THEN stop to think: If I'm thinking about doing this in the States, I could just as well do it abroad if I find a really cheap flight to London or wherever. Stay in hostel, just stay in the city and explore! How cool would that be! Lucky you!

If you decide to go to London, I know a really really inexpensive hotel you could stay at...with rates that are as low as any hostel! Hahahahaha.

Ryan, I think I might have heard of that one! With a little Pakistani dude behind the desk..? :)

Tanya... well, I only have a week to work with, and there's enough in Boston and New York to keep me busy for a week... they probably both deserve their own trips...

What did you decide...where are you going on vacation?

Joe is coming out to visit next week and I am going on my second vacation of the year. We are going to be mountain men in the wilds of Southwestern Utah at Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. Keep your fingers crossed that we are not attacked by a cougar!
