I now have a tentative travel date.
I will be traveling to Germany on/around 9 November 2009. Wow, only 4 short weeks. It's going to be 7-10 days before I get the travel order and am able to go to Ft Knox to actually schedule the flights but it's going very quickly now.
My sponsor request has been submitted and hopefully I will have a sponsor assigned within a week. Yeah, I know I am hoping....but without hope....
So now I am attempting to figure out my very first 'Monthly Excursion'. When the position at Landstuhl started looking like it was actually going to happen, I decided that I could fulfill my wanderlust by planning a monthly excursion to a neighboring country.
Trinity is going to be visiting for New Years 2010. She will be arriving just after Christmas and staying for about a week. I am assuming (yes...I am aware of what they say about 'make an @$$ out of U and Me' when it comes to assuming anything.....), so I was saying that I assume that I will be able to take at least a partial week off of work over New Years while Trinity is visiting. You know me, If I have to beg/borrow/plead I'll figure out a way to make it happen! So now the question is where do we go for New Years?
I have narrowed down my list (actually, I just did a google search for 'top 10 New Year Destinations'). So, here are the options and I would love to have comments/advice/suggestions....
If you have any information on any of these, please let me know!! I am hoping to figure it out soon so that I can (hopefully) still book hotel/hostel wherever I choose.
