I'm down to just two more trips 'til the end of the year.
Hopefully none of them will involve the horrible troubles I had on my last trip, or I might just have to go stick my head in the microwave and punch "Max Defrost."
Given how completely worn out I am by traveling, I'm trying very hard to clear the month of January so I can just stay home. I was secretly hoping to clear at least half of February as well, but I've already got two trips scheduled in there, so that was just a pipe dream. Then March is my birthday. A time when I prefer to be out of the country so that my friends and family will forget about it. I have no problem acknowledging my birthday, but I don't believe in celebrating it. Last year I went to Oslo and Göteborg so I could hang out with Karla and Göran... this year I have no idea where I will feel like going.
Maybe it's finally time to head to Australia & New Zealand?
Which is not quite as appealing as it used to be now that the Hard Rock Cafes in Sydney, Melbourne, and Queenstown have been closed. Only one lone cafe remains at Surfer's Paradise. Probably should visit that one before it's gone too.
But Australia is such a long flight away.
Maybe it will just be a quick flight to Tijuana.
Except the Tijuana Hard Rock Cafe is closed as well, so I'd have to find something else to do there.
Or I could just ask everybody for suggestions and pull the location for my birthday escape out of a hat...
