Savings Goal Accomplished!

Last April I sat down and sketched out a savings plan.  I am not only going to reach it but exceed my goal and that makes me very happy because everything is falling in place.

Now, if I can only get all the little stuff done.  The snow (in Spring!?!) isn’t helping the one last trip I want to make to REI today.  Oh, and the usual pre-trip nightmares have started but I know that I am well prepared and that there’s nothing to worry about.

Starting Monday is my last official week at Dakota Creek.  I’ve been there for almost five years and it’s my longest held job.  I’ve learned so much about the marine industry and business.  I will miss my family-like workplace but I’m also excited by what the future may hold for me.

Nine more days!!


Itinerary Update

I have officially changed my flights to miss Sri Lanka due to the ending of the cease-fire and that many experts believe the civil war will only get worst.  I think it will work out for the best though.  The weather isn’t the greatest that time of year anyway.  Emirates Airlines didn’t charge me anything to change my flights AND to cut out Colombo.  I haven’t even flown with them and I already hold them in high regard.  Try doing that with an US-based airline.

It will be real easy to fill an extra month in South East Asia.  Bali… Borneo… Myanmar?  I think I’m going to wait until I arrive in Singapore and “go with the flow” so to speak.  But, I’m definitely open to suggestions.

I leave in less than 5 weeks when I jet off to Madrid for a couple nights and then dive head first into Morocco.  After that, I’ll meet a friend for cruising around the Greek Islands and then off to Turkey.

And I received the perfect fortune cookie today: “Your future in the next month looks bright.  Enjoy this time.”

Where’s Stacy?

Stacy is in West Virginia and totally amazed by the power of Math. (Nerd, I know!)
