Ramblin’ Woman

So my roommate has a theory that if you’re going to turn 30, and with that of course freak out and be miserable, you might as well have something to look forward to. Her suggestion was a trip so we compiled top ten lists of places we want to go and looked for overlaps. We haven’t ultimately decided yet where we’ll go but we’ve narrowed it down to somewhere in Europe potentially any two or more of the following:

  • Spain
  • France
  • Italy
  • Ireland
  • Scotland
  • Czech Republic
  • Greece
  • Germany

I think we’re doing this in a pretty smart way. We have about a year and a half to plan and save. We’re both pretty motivated to get this to work with our school/work schedules. I know some French and she knows some Spanish; I’d like to learn some Italian and she wants to learn German so we’re working through the language issues.

Now I admit I anticipate some traveling issues- the whole 24-7 together syndrome. But I think we’re both aware of those problems and I do live with her so at least I’m familiar with the things most likely to annoy me. Naive? Probably. We’ll see…

PS- I don’t want to hear it, Cassie! I’m only your second-favorite cousin, huh?

    Ahahahahaha! You know I was reading this, thinking, ‘Damn her for planning a fun European Vacation without me!’ Especially when I saw Greece on the list. You can’t do Greece without me!

    It’s ok, we’ve had lots of fun-filled vacations together, you’re allowed to forsake me.
