Under 250 Days!

Well, hopefully it’s under 250 days till I board a plane to Australia…

I had a bit of a crazy day today. I’ve got a big deadline on Wednesday and another one on Friday so I woke up at 4 AM and was at my desk by 5:10 AM. I got a ton of work done and it looks like the rest of my week is falling into place and it looks like it will be crazy but not too crazy. The reason I bring up work is to talk about my favorite part of every day. It’s when I update the countdown on my white board. I changed it to 249 days today and it was pretty exciting.

A lot of people don’t understand my love of travel, let alone my love of planning my travel. Travel planning is very liberating for me. The more knowledge I have about potential destinations, the more comfortable I feel and the better time I have.

I want to meet people. I want to add to my already long list of friends. I want to see the world from a different perspective. I want to get to know a whole new group of people and I even want to be tortured yet again with the thought of parting from them.

I’m just loving the thought of getting on that plane to LA and then another plane to Melbourne right now. I’m off to work on my Eastern Road Travelogue some more and hope to talk with KT and Kev tonight to set up our plans to meet up in NYC when Ronnie and Hans come over for Ronnie’s birthday in August.

But before I go, I thought I’d share one of my favorite travel quotes. I’ve got a ton of them, so stay tuned for more inspirational travel quotes to get you excited about traveling!
