Sing it with me!
I finally went to see a travel agent today! I'll be teaching in Asia in the spring semester, and want to bookend my teaching with travel on either end, one trip in late December/January, and one in May. I figure, the heck with retiring (ever).
My fantasy vacations are Malaysia/Indonesia (especially Borneo), Thailand, and ?
I'm sort of open-minded, but I'm interested in seeing wildlife, especially birds (and orangs! or gibbons!). And I'm interested in seeing cultural stuffs. But not so much in big cities (I've spent some time in some big cities, and they're great fun! But now for something different).
Nepal and Tibet would be wonderful, too. She tried to talk me into China, but I don't tend to have fantasies about China. I want an adventure!
And I'd love to have some suggestions. (There are more places to visit than time, alas.)
I stress way too much over stuff I shouldn't. Today, I had a mammogram, just the usual bleeping middle-age screening thing. But I lost sleep over it worrying, felt ucky in my gut. It's not fun, no. (Seriously, last time my breasts hurt for four days.) I haven't been manhandled like that... I was going to say since high school, but more like since my last mammogram. But it wasn't worth the energy I put into fretting. And now it's done.
The thing is, I don't worry about my breasts or breast cancer, except when it's time for the mammogram. And now I'll have this undercurrent of stress until I hear or get a little postcard in the mail. (Someday, I'll tell you all about my telegram from hell weekend.)
