Sitting in the airport on Dubai

Got in with no problems. Actually, the whole trip has gone really, really smoothly so far. I think that part of it is that I am flying on “off” days and the airports aren’t so busy. Flight took off and got in right on time. The piolet said that it was “a little warm at …

Flight to Dubai

OK, for the record, Emerites Airlines rocks. Not only was everyone very friendly, did their job, and had decent food (really!), but they had this nifty entertainment doohicky at every seat. You could pull up dozens of movies, games, and lots and lots of music. They had a pretty good selection too. I listened to …

NYC trip

It was great. Saw Jen for the first time in probably 10 years. Dean and I couldn’t remember the last time we got together, so it has probably been quite some time as well. Other than catching up with those two, I saw Grand Central Station, walked down broadway to Times square, saw the southern …

Christmas is looking up

I made my reservations in Malta for Christmas and New Year’s last night. I had to bag the whole Italy thing since it was going to be way too expensive. A hint for anyone looking for a warm getaway in the winter, Malta is crazy cheap in the off season. The flights are pretty reasonable …

I’m sure the NSA is listening now…

Made my first cal to Yemen today. I had to confirm that someone would be there to pick me up at the airport. Those of you who might want to call me once I’m there may think about stocking up on international calling cards, preferably ones made specifically for the middle east or Yemen. I …

Getting there…

So I’m going back to DC tomorrow (at my mom’s house right now) to finish packing. There’s still a bunch of little things I have to take care if before I go and I hope I remember them all. It’s getting really close, right now I’m much more worried about the flights going smoothly. I’ll …

The tour continues

Got in from Connecticut last night, going down to my father’s for a Christmas/Thanksgiving get together tonight. I’ll be back up on tuesday to finish the packing…wow. It’s almost time for the biggest trip of my life. Gotta say I’m psyched, a whole new world awaits!! Isaac

Going a little crazy..

So much to do and so little time to do it… The place is starting to look a little empty. Most of my cds and almost all of my books have been packed up. The stereo is gone (thanks Jenny!), and I just have assorted crap and junk strewn about. I think I’ll need another …

Off to Dad’s

I’ll be at dad’s place today, and then I’m off to my mother’s. I’ll be back sat. night, off to Jenny’s on sunday (yay!), and then I catch a train to Connecticut on monday. Then it’s back to dad’s for the final amount of moving crap… Things just really busy. The final flurry before the …
