Roadtrip!

Roadtrip!

I have a date for my PhD defense (March 2nd), and (not entirely coincidentally, now also handed in a holiday request [approved] and have booked flights and a rental car for after – hotel for the first night still to be booked).

Dear US economy, I shall be doing a tiny bit to put money into your system, soon.
Dear €/$ exchange rate, *please* don’t tank completely in the next 5 weeks. Please?

19 days, 5 states.
Coastlines and sunshine (hopefully) and history and swamps and beaches and Cape Canaveral!

The plan is this (although the actual routes I take will be a lot more meandering!) :

    I admire that. A roadtrip! Awesome. I’m too scared to drive a car. If I wasn’t – I’d do roadtrips, too.

    Well, you know your task: Pics ‘n vids! Otherwise, it didn’t happen.

    Maja, road trips are my favourite kinds of holidays, I think … this will be my 3rd/4th one (depending on whether or not five days before an academic conference count), and they’ve all been awesome. I like the freedom they bring – being able to drive where you want, to stop where you want, … . And, yes, pics will definitely happen!

    I wish I could show you New Orleans, but my month is already booked solid.

    Enjoy! You’ve earned it.
