Alright, I didn't want to have to post another going away thread in OT. <i>Really</i> I didn't! But not many people are going to the Thailand thread I had Michael post in the Other Countries forum. So, to my chagrin, here it is! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/moonpie.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":moonpie:"><br><br><br><br><br><br><span><b>I'm going to Thailand for 21 days!</b></span> Here's my schedule for the next 2-3 days...<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I go to bed tonight and get up in 6 hours. Between 8AM and 2PM I have to get everything done... Change my voicemail, change my ratties' cage, pack my bags, pay my bills, etc. Then I work from 2-10, and I have to be at the airport 7 hours later so that I can fly out for 7AM... Then I go to Minneapolis for a 5 hour layover, take a 12 hour flight to Tokyo, layover for another 2 hours, and then fly to Bangkok, ending my 26 hour journey and landing at 11PM the next day.<br><br><br><br>
Yes, if you were keeping track, that's 7AM day 1 to 11PM day 2, local times. <b>It. will. suck.</b><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I am meeting my good friend, Mirella, who's from Holland, there. We have no concrete plans, just lots of ideas. We'll be free-stylin' traveling for 3 weeks, and then I'll start my long ass journey back to the US on the 19th and reclaim 12 hours of life. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
This'll be my home base for when I stop into internet cafés! I'm going to go to those as many times as I can, as that'll be my means of communication with my parents, friends, coworkers, and most importantly, y'all! (Yeah... this yankee's add y'all to his vocabulary. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> )

I know LF! Too be honest, I'm just as excited to be in Tokyo for 2 hours as I am to be in Thailand for three weeks! I cannot wait to get there! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Alright.. its 10:40... I have to be at the airport in 5hrs 10minutes... and I'm going to pack!<br><br><br><br>
I'll post in a few days and let everyone know what's up, or if I'm still alive! Watch the news for any place crashes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

You'll have plenty of time to nap on the plane. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Have a great trip! Are you going to just southern Thailand? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Thanks Oatmeal!<br><br><br><br>
saborm, nope! We plan on spending time in Chiang Mai, and who knows where else... Probably see a hill tribe, or refugee camp or something! We both also want to go into the jungle, and see ruins too! So much to do!<br><br><br><br>
I really just got 10 5-minute naps because I was so paranoid I was going to oversleep. I already have a headache and want to go to bed for 10 hours, and now I've got a 26 hour flight! I sure do hope I can find a way to sleep comfortably without waking with the most insane neckache!<br><br><br><br>
Off to the airport!
