Holy travel plans Batman!! My September schedule was originally looking relatively quiet with normal work weeks and some hometown football weekends mixed in. And then two incredibly exciting travel opportunities popped up back to back!
First, my bestie in the whole wide world is super scientist/professor smartie-pants. She got invited to present her
plan to take over the world research at evil genius, mad scientist convention in Brussels the last week in September. She emailed and asked me if I wanted to come along. Um, YES!
Amazingly my work project schedule could accommodate a vacation week so we immediately made plans to leave five days before the conference (Sept 22nd) to fly into Brussels and then take the train over to Paris for a few days! We have dreamed of traveling to Europe together since we were little bookworms who would go to each other’s houses for ‘reading dates’ when we were 13 and imagine traveling around the big interesting world. So I am absolutely beyond excited for this trip! (We haven’t lived in the same town since 2007.)
And then! Yesterday, I was just humming along getting my normal client work wrapped up for the weekend when my boss IM’ed and says, “How do you feel about project travel to Argentina?” Um… YES! And then he follows up with, “And how do you feel about doing it next week?” Whoa! But still, YES!
So I’m now scheduled to fly out Tuesday the 10th to Buenos Aires to assist on a project. I’ll work there for the week and return that weekend. Looking at flights I should be able to squeeze in a day of sightseeing by flying home Saturday instead of Friday. Exciting! I’ve never been to Argentina.
Like I said – Holy Travel Batman!
