09/15/2009: "Travelblogue - Day 0"Listening to: nothing
Current mood: excited/apprehensive
Tomorrow morning I'm getting on a plane and traveling 6,300 miles to a country where I don't speak a word of the language.
So begins our long-planned, long-awaited, I-didn't-think-it-was-actually-really-ever-going-to-happen trip to Europe. The trip is as follows: Flying to Brussels for a few days there, chunnel up to London for a couple days, from there up to Edinburgh for a few days, back down to York for a couple days there, then over to Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast for a few days, then back to London, back to Brussels, perhaps a day in Bruges, then back home on October 3rd.
To say that Lynnea and I are very excited is an extreme understatement, but we're also a little freaked because neither of us has ever been to anywhere. I mean, Maui, Baja a couple times, and I went to both Canada and the east coast when I was a kid, but nothing like this. I know it's not a big deal to most people, but there's definitely a part of me that never thought I'd make off this continent.
Anyway, I'm going to try to blog every day of the trip if I can, post a few pictures here and there. I've never managed to keep that sort of thing up in the past, but then, I've never taken a trip this interesting before.
Tomorrow (or actually more like Friday I suspect): San Diego to Brussels
