I'm slowly getting my pics downloaded and blogged. Put up some surf pics yesterday, and plan to finish Istanbul and Tim's wedding tonight. That should do it, until I hit the road again.
And I have the travel bug bad. Heading to Sydney in a few weeks. I still haven't heard from my buds down there ... hopefully my emails are getting through. And I just wasted my lunch hour plotting out where to go next. One benefit of state work is, I get plenty vacation time. I don't think I've ever had this much. Or if I did, I had it but it was illusory, & impossible to take.
No more. This kid is ready to see the world. Summer I have my sister's wedding in Asheville, and I'll pull a week in New York [and hopefully Fire Island] before or after. And in the fall ... who knows. Right now the fantasy is Mexico. Hollis mentioned doing a road trip around Puerto Vallarta or Cancún in the fall ... and that was all I needed to hear to start fantasizing and budgeting vacation hours. Today's vision: a week road trip around Jalisco, then wrap-up at Latin Fever 9 in Puerto Vallarta. Maybe I'll finally learn some Spanish.
Of course, two days ago I was picturing Mayan ruins and the Playa del Carmen outside Cancún ...
And I've got a new favorite word... Nolle Prosequi. It's Latin for Michael doesn't have a warrant out for him.
