Thanks to the swine flu-induced travel advisory. Now, I dont feel THAT bad whenever I daydream my way to another overseas adventure. I think one eight (okay, 2 eights. haha) of my day revolves around planning for another trip. I cracked the habit last year, when planning our wedding. Now feeling a few weeks short of a decent honeymoon (i mean, Boracay was decent and okay--but i want something *eherm* 'foreign'), Jay and I have been discussing plans come end of this year (due to financial constraints, limited annual leaves and the NBA season (asa ka pa), it's gotta be between end of third quarter and early fourth quarter). Eh, anak ng tokwa, talagang hindi nako mapakali eh noh.
Gusto ko sanang tumawad ng mas maagang shorter trip, pero sayang naman, we both agreed earlier na wala munang magba back tracking, so we can't go back to Tokyo (ang kyoot sana kung may cherry blossoms background ang birthday picture ko. o ng fuji-san, with the sake in hand. omaygad!) or Hong Kong (syet, ilang wig ng manika ang mapapakyaw ko? may side-part na wig kaya dun? ilang sugarmag outfits kaya ang kasya sa maleta ko, genuine man or japeks??) I know, and OA, pero totoo itong scenario na ito--nanginginig nginig pa.
Until now we havent decided on whether we should go to the land of stone cold ice cream--that one with a French lady statue as national symbol(and it's not even France), or go 'old school' via the empires of the past and their quaint commuter towns and cities. So while practicing restraint, I just make plans. Aimlessly. I know, pathetic. Gumagawa ako ng iterinary, research ever on how to navigate the entire euro railway (if in case it's europa) from london to prague. Tumitingin ako ng cheap domestic flights from San Fran to NYC, just to get an idea how much this trip will cost us. Inaalam ko na nga rin kung magkano ang tickets ng:
-isang NBA game (well, two games, kasi napilitan lang ako sa Lakers game, at maiinggit si Jay sa Knicks game ko. harhar)
- coldplay concert sa Wembley, Parc des Princes o Estudi Olimpic (dahil manunuod ako nito! hah!)
Ngayon, kung tuloy ang Inglatera-Pransya-Espanya-Italia tour, eto sana ang gusto kong makita sa first leg of our trip:
HOPES and EXPECTATIONS 101:
Ben Ben. Dahil maganda syang litratuhan sa gabi.(mapapansin nyong halos lahat ng gusto kong landmark ay magandang litratuhan sa gabi)
London Bridge (...is falling done, falling down...)
and something like this (at Piccadilly Circus), kasi wala pang ganito sa Ayala at sa Orchard (at this caliber, take note). haha.
