Plane Tickets and Commitment

I have just made a huge commitment to someone. No I did not get engaged nor have I taken orders to become a nun. I have, however, committed to spend three weeks with one person in another country. Other than my mission I don't think I have ever spent that much time time with one person. I did go to China with my friend Amren but we were not together 24/7 and didn't have to share a bed, something I am sure Amy and I will have to do numerous times. 

I was really excited to buy the ticket but as I started to push the confirm button I had this rush of panic as I realized that I was making a huge commitment. Now that's over I am really excited and hope that Amy can stand me for three weeks and doesn't mind me talking in my sleep.
These nun's feelings mirror Amy's  (if I can speak for Amy) and my feelings about our trip. 


  1. You talk in your sleep? What else did you not tell me before I committed three weeks of my life to you?

    Oh well, no turning back now :)

  2. I thought I would be the first non-author of the blog to comment on it.

    I remember buying my ticket to Brazil last year. I stared at the confirm button for a good long while before I worked up the courage to click it.

  3. Since no one else has pointed this out maybe it is supposed to be that way, but Britain is misspelled in the banner. Was that on purpose or am I just too literal?

  4. Go see the Tower of London - it was my favorite part (and favorite gift shop...which oddly enough I think I spent more time in gift shops than in the actual historical places...jk).

  5. ok - so this is going to be my last suggestion (maybe not) - my favorite place to eat while I was there was Cafe In The Crypt, St.Martin-in-the-Fields, Charing Cross. serioulsy - the best grilled cheese and tomato soup I have ever had...ever! Plus, eating with a bunch of dead people burried around you just cant be beat!
