preface: this is a religious trip. and will thus be centered on that.

non-negotiable:
july 16-19, poland for international convention of jehovah's witnesses.
deposit due by february 2, full cost due march 23rd.

surrounding trip choices:
[a]: poland only. 1 week, travel to warsaw. 2500 dollars.
[b]: france and poland. 12 days, bastille day free in paris, trip to monet's house. 3100 dollars.
[c]: denmark, sweden, germany, russia, estonia, poland. 18 day cruise, with stops in copenhagen, stockholm, visby, kiel, st. petersburg, talinn. 6000 dollars.

dilemma:
i can easily get the money for the first trip. i want france like burning, and this'll probably be my only trip; i could maybe swing an independent learning credit out of it. but you can't pass up a 6 country tour... even if i'll have to sell blood, organs, all my worldly possessions and then some to do it.

I'M SO CONFLICTED. on the one hand, money woes. on the other hand, BASTILLE DAY. FRANCE. PARIS ALL FOR ME. on the other, other hand, whirlwind tour of europe via cruise. i've never been on a cruise, but i really, really wanna. *wants* and those are just the three options i settled on. there's 15 options. i could go to the czech republic, or london. italy or germany. see more of poland. see germany-poland-france. austria. CONFLICTED. why oh why can't i have money??? i want them all. ALL.


and i hate to do it, but i'm agreeing with celestine now as she's going to austria in august for the same purpose as why i'm in poland... and she keeps saying that she doesn't know when she'll be in europe again. !!! she's going to turkey for her extend-o-stay. when will i ever get the baltic sea cruise again? on the other hand, when will i see france again (not bloody likely, lemme tell ya)??? i'll always have england, so i'm not worried about that. but... but... DUDE.

mannnnnn 'c' would be so amazing. but if all else fails i'd definately go for 'b'.

or italy. i'd love to see italy.

it was soooo hard for me to decide too. we went to copenhagen (my mom & i) and then went on a castle tour - we saw like, 6 castles. it was fun. but also we have family in sweden so we took the ferry over there for a visit on our own.

i am so excited for you!

eee! pictures! awesome. (you look very, very young in those pictures! but it's so beautiful!!!)

i had the idea to go to england, as i've got family there. but since i've been there... C is the ultimate trip, with stops in 4 of the branch offices? but it's going to be maybe my 2nd or 3rd choice overall, you know? because at least B is affordable and gives me what i want.

23, as of this past November.

i dunno. i swear that i look pretty much the same from when i was 4 to now. maybe i got more hair (and more gray ones at that, as i'm going prematurely gray), but generally the same.
