I was doing some travel planning and Miguel says “Man it looks like you have your whole trip planned out”. Well I’m still working on it. I find it good to have some travel planning goals in place before I go, but I don’t go crazy if I don’t get to do something. It is much more fun to wing it, but it is good to have an initial list.

Round trip airline tickets for my parents √
Some things are a must. Like purchasing airline tickets and hotel rooms. I will be staying at my own house, but I will need a hotel room in Dubai on my way back.

One of the first things I plan on doing on my Orlando Vacation is to see Mary Poppins. I luv luv luv going to Broadway shows when I can catch them. It is going to be a girls night with my mom, my children’s grandmother, my daughter and I. It is almost like a tradition for us. I created that monster and I like it.

All signed up for Disney 1/2 marathon. Can’t wait. I have to do a packet pickup 2 days before and then it is on. I anticipate that day to be memorable and fun.

Gonna get me some wine and see a live band at the local winery. You can’t go wrong when it comes to wine.
Gonna take my children to the Orlando Science Center. That is a fun place for grownups and kids.
Gotta go to the movies. I actually don’t know what is showing, but I plan on going as much as I can.
Gotta get my Chinese visa for my summer time trip. Working on that one. I really want to go to China. I have to do this while I’m in the states.
Still need to make a doctors and dentist appointment. I can’t come back to Afghanistan without seeing the dentist.
And I think Last but not least I need to get some new running shoes and have some blog meet ups.
I think it is going to be an exciting vacation. I think I can say that travel planning is a good thing and is definitely in order for this trip.
Oh almost forgot. The winner of the Contractors Handbook is Carrie Rubin. (Hey click on her name to check out her blog.) I will email you shortly. As a matter of fact I am currently reading Carrie’s book. It is really good so far. The Seneca Scourge. You all should check it out. I will be doing a review soon.
