transvestite prosititutes, here we come! [Jan. 13th, 2006|02:36 pm]
Just me.
Early last year, I told a friend, Teresa, that I didn't think I'd be one of those people who went to Burning Man every year (I've been the last two years in a row), because for $>1000 and almost 2 weeks vacation time, there were other exotic places in the world I'd like to see, and I can't do both in a year because of money and vacation time. She said, "Places like where?", to which I said "Vanuatu. and Thailand." She agreed that Thailand is a place that would be excellent to go to. I can't remember if she had any opinions about Vanuatu.

Last week, I got an email from her- her friend is currently living in Thailand, and she, her best friend, and her boyfriend are all going for 2 weeks in March and would me and Ivan like to go, too?

So work approved the time off, and I just gave orbitz my non-refundable hard-earned dollars. Looks like I'm committed now. It doesn't seem real yet, though I'm sure when I get my credit card bill, it will.

Unless my vacation accrual and savings accrual happen in a way I didn't previously observe, I will not be going to Burning Man this year. Which is fine- I got yer Temples and morning yoga right here. Plus, Burning Man doesn't usually have durians and transvestite prostitutes (no, I will not be bringing back either as souvenirs), much less elephants. Or elephant transvestite prostitutes.

Anyone that's been that has recommendations/ cautions, please comment.

That is going to be an amazing trip! And much better than BM, hands down.

I've been jonesing to go somewhere for years. Haven't been anywhere cool for over 5 years now. That really bums me out. Once we get our $$ working out, I will need to travel!

BTW, I'll be down in Seattle between J30th and F4th... maybe we and dawn can all get together during that time.

I'll definitely be around, not sure about Ms. jet-setter, who will have taken 3 different plane trips in january by the end of the month. she'll be away this weekend and then also 1/20- 1/25, but after that I think she'll grace us with a weekend or two in one place. :-)
