On Tuesday morning I received my passport! This may seem a little lame, but I’ve never in my 27 years had my own passport. In the past when I was significantly younger, I always flew under my parents passport and though I’ve often traveled to the U.S. it wasn’t until recently that you actually required a passport to travel to the states.
I’m pretty excited. I am one step closer to making this trip real. A few more things still need to get done though. I need to apply for my visa obviously. I also need to buy new luggage, maybe buy some new clothes and (blast!) save some money for rent for while I am away. Oh, and (blast again!) my computer has recently decided to fail me, so I need to buy a new laptop for the trip. How else will I blog and post photos otherwise?
So while I am closer to making this trip so very real, I am well aware that there is still much to get done. Slight things, in the grand scheme of things, but things none the less. So off I go to keep plugging away.
