T Minus One Week!

Ahhh I leave in one week! I can't believe the time is almost here. I've been planning this trip for so long it's weird that in a week from today I'll be across the country and soon to be abroad. My first stops are Seattle and Vancouver since I've never been to either and have always wanted to visit, plus it'll be a good break on my way to China. I've been getting all my trip items together as well as organizing all my life stuff - credit/debit cards, insurance, canceling my cell phone, and even trying to sell my car :( Which I don't really want to do, but a month after I leave my parents are moving from down to North Carolina and apparently bringing my car is "too much of a hassle" Oh shoot.
The drive back home to Connecticut from Denver seemed a lot shorter this time. My first stop was in Manhattan, KS where I stayed with a fellow couchsurfer, Adam. Soo much fun. And so much wine. I have a new respect for Kansas! I then saw Ali in St. Louis and Eryn in Columbus. I'm really glad I got to see them before I left! When I got home I headed up to Boston for the weekend and then spent the rest of the week starting to unpack and repack and going into NYC for my Chinese visa (which I got no problem, thank God) and to visit and stay with some friends. Overall quite a productive couple weeks!
