Big Changes

It’s official, I’m going to Athens and Istanbul this summer! I quickly got over my fear, and have come down with a serious case of the travel bug. I only wonder if there’s any way I can make enough money and have enough time off to see all the places I want to see. My travel “bucket list” is quite literally over a mile long.

In other news,┬ámy family is┬ámoving to Silver Spring, which means I have to pack up absolutely everything and get rid of everything else. Space is going to become a real issue starting next month. On the up side, I’ll be able to get a dog at this new location. I’m thinking of naming him Fritz.

I was pretty bummed out about the move, but now that I’ve got a few things to look forward to, it might not be so bad. A trip to Europe and a new dog? I mean come on, that’s gotta cheer anyone up.

I wonder if 2 days in Istanbul is enough to write a story moving enough to be picked up by National Geographic.
