To say that I'm excited would be an understatement... we just booked my flights about an hour ago! It's not the best flight ever, with far too many transfers, but it's booked, and it wasn't expensive, and I'M LEAVING FOR SCOTLAND IN 61 DAYS!
I know I'll hate it at the time, but right now I'm actually kind of excited about my many transfers. I bus from PEI to Halifax, then fly to Boston, then fly to Rekyavik, Iceland, then fly to Glasgow, then bus to St. Andrew's. Within twenty-four hours, I'll visit six cities and four countries. Considering that as of now I've only seen Canada and the US, the idea of visiting four countries in a day is pretty fantastic. My biggest regret is that I'll only be spending an hour in Iceland, and it'll be dark.
I've also got my VISA application off in the mail, so hopefully I'll hear back from them within a few weeks. It's been a lot of stress recently with all this paperwork, and I know there's a lot more to do, what with power of attorney, travel insurance, and money transfers, but at least I've got some of the major things figured out.
At this point, I'm just going to enjoy the fact that in exactly two months I'll be in Scotland...!
