One more week

One more week. Seven little days and Dave and I will be on our way to Fiji!!!! I know how to say hello now in Fiji so I'm all set. I went out to lunch with my parents and some friends yesterday and it turns out the one of my parent's friends spent some time in Fiji back in World War II and told me BULA means hello there. Our flight leaves Cleveland airport at 5:15 p.m. on January 6th so this time next week we will be on an airplane waiting to take off.

It has been really nice spending time with our families. I am back in North Olmsted where Dave's parents live for a farewell/New Year party. It is a small one - not like the one in Orlando. Just family and some close friends. Then Dave and I are gong back to the farm for a few more days and then we will spend Thursday, Friday and Saturday back in North Olmsted. We still need to buy a few more things and confirm our plane tickets but if we had to leave tomorrow we could. We booked our hostel in Queenstown, New Zealand today. The organization that we are doing the Milford Trek through asked that we send them our pre-hike accomodations. So, we booked a hostel that has private twin beds and a shared bathroom. There was one we looked at that had a private double bed and a private bathroom but at $50 per person we decided to go cheaper. We were laughing at the fact that we both felt that $100 bucks a night for a room was too expensive. That is probably how much the Red Roof costs on highway 77 in West Virginia for goodness sakes!

Happy New Year everyone!!!

I put a couple of website links here for you. The first is a site we used a lot in planning and booking this trip. The second is a link to the organization that we are doing the Milford Track through.
