Why is it that during class you struggle to keep your eyes open yet at the same time you want to be fully awake and hear what the teacher is saying. And then, the moment you leave, you can't seem to get that nap you've been wanting since you woke up? Arg, in the library now.
I'm pulling together my travel plans and this is what it looks like so far...
21 Dec - My parents and sister show up and we bum around London for a few days.
24 Dec - Off to Roma for Midnight Mass con Il Papa.
27 Dec - Amalfi coast in Italia for some nice R & R (maybe a tan?).
1 Jan - Roma to drop off my dad and sister so they can go back to the States. My mom and I continue on to Tuscany.
5 Jan - Back to Roma to go back to London.
7 Jan - Mom leaves.
I'm super pumped for this trip. It promises to be very memorable (I mean, Midnight Mass, how can it not be memorable?). That does it for January. Hopefully my memory stick won't run out of room. I have a feeling I will be taking numerous of photos. Supposedly Mr. Gabe Stone-Jansen is boarding an airplane and coming to visit me some time in the first few weeks of January before school starts for him, but he hasn't informed me of anything yet... Next trip comes in February for my bday.
9 Feb - Fly to Dublin.
11 Feb - Fly back to London.
Quick trip to Dublin. Check Ireland out. Celebrate my 21st bday. I've got mad peeps rollin deep over there come next term. Figure Matt Damon can at least one appearance in the Land of Ire.
23 Feb - Fly to Glasgow.
25 Feb - Fly back to London.
I'm meeting my friend Mollie in Glasgow for a nice weekend with Dave Matthews and his band. It should be great. After that I have a few weeks off to concentrate on school and then rumors are circulating that Mr. Christopher Staudt and Mr. Christiano Pedra Nobre are coming to London to visit me and Taylor during their. Approximate dates are 9 Mar to 16 Mar. The Lent term ends on 16 Mar. I then have a week off before I begin the real travels.
25 Mar - Board a coach bus for 24 hours trip to Calella, Espania with the rugby boys. We're going to this spring break resort thing down there that is hosting a rugby tournament.
31 Mar - Quick trip into Barthelona (see: Birdcage) for a flight to Paris and meet up with Trish.
4/5 Apr - Here is unclear. I still have two and a half weeks til the final term starts. I want to squeeze in one more trip. I'm thinking either Belgium to visit my friend or Austria for a few days. The location also might depend on the snow factor. Athens might see Matt Damon.
9 Apr - Back in London by the latest.
That's what I've got so far. Haven't booked a single ticket save Italia and the Espania portion of the trip. Matt Damon is gonna be busy trying to keep a low profile as he travels around Europe. I hope it all goes well for him.
Any other suggestions?
