In 2009, we were getting set to travel around the world! We were wrapping up Eric's band, hanging out with a bulldog and going on aerobatic plane rides!

The best part of this is this snowman is his location, RIGHT ON THE CURB of my street. Also, I was home alone today so to get this picture I needed to put a stool in the street with the camera on top, set the 10 second self timer and hold that stupid pose for way too long. As I'm waiting for the thing to go off the neighbors across the street, who I have avoided talking to for no good reason for the past 7 years, walked outside and saw me doing that...with that. Epic.

Last weekend, Kyde arranged a bouncy castle party for my birthday. It was totally amazing.

I made friends with a fuzzy bug. His feet were like suction cups, I could feel them pop off my skin when he walked.

Kyde and I are going on a trip. We leave on August 31st and don't have a return date set, but it's going to be a while. Here's a rough outline of where we will be going:
-Early in the morning of August 31st, we will fly from DC to Costa Rica. My parents have recently moved there and we will be going down to check out their place and hopefully see a bit more of Costa Rica in general. They live on the Caribbean side of the country near the town of Puerto Limon.
-On the 10th of September, we will fly to JFK airport in NYC. We will get a room overnight near the airport and rest in preparation of our flight out of JFK in the evening of Sept 11th (dun dun dun!). This flight will take us 9593 miles in 24 hours and 35 minutes to Bangkok, Thailand. We have layovers in Alaska and Taiwan that are around 2 hours each, so total flying time will be around 20 hours. In coach. Did I mention I'm six foot seven? Fun!
For the next stage, I will include a map so it's easy to follow along.
-We will land in Bangkok, Thailand on September 13th at around noon, local time. We have a 90-day visa to travel within Thailand, but doubt we will be there that long. Perhaps a few weeks. Then, we will work our way south onto the Malaysian peninsula and down to Singapore. From Singapore, we will head to Cambodia and spend some time (a couple of weeks) there before entering Vietnam. After Vietnam, things get a little foggy on where we will go next, but it has been indicated to us that getting a Chinese Visa from the northern Vietnamese consulate is pretty hard, so we think we may fly to Hong Kong from Vietnam. We hear it will be much easier to gain entry into China from HK. Other places we may or may not end up are: Taiwan, South Korea, Japan (it's soooo expensive!) and India.
I will be updating things on this page as we go along and posting links in facebook and so forth. So, it's easy to keep an eye on us. We will be doing a majority of our updates via a youtubeyoutube journal so don't worry about having to read a bunch of stuff if you want to keep up. Also, if anyone wants to meet up with us anywhere for some adventuring, email me or something!
