Leaving today

sunny 80 °F

I'm finally going to Prague! I started planning this trip 7 or 8 years ago. However, life happened and I just kept putting it off. This summer, I decided it was about time.

This will be my longest trip overseas and by myself. I'll be gone a full 2 weeks this time. I keep telling myself - and anyone who will listen to me - that when I retire in a few years I'm going to spend the first year traveling. I need to start learning how to be on my own for longer periods of time if I'm going to go through with this master plan.

For this trip I'm going to the Czech Republic and Poland. I figured if I'm going to lose a day each way with the transatlantic flight, I should make it worth my time and get two new countries in. HA!

I'm hoping to have decent internet access so I can update everyone with what I've seen and to share a few pictures. Mike and I have this theory...the more "advanced" the country, the worse the wi-fi. Neither of us have had issues finding internet access in Nicaragua, Ukraine or Cyprus. However, both of us had the hardest time finding reliable wi-fi in Germany and Mike had issues in Italy this year. So it may sound strange, but I'm hoping both Czech Republic & Poland are behind the times enough to support abundant wi-fi. Stay tuned.

So, sit back and relax. I'll deal with the cramped planes and testy airport security folks so you can read all about it at your leisure. I'll be having the time of my life!
