my boyfriend shawn is in australia right now with his brother mark and dropping them off at the airport on monday (among other things) has gotten the travel bug in me again. (i don't know why i really say 'again.' the travel bug is sort of perpetually in me, making me forever unsatisfied). alas, the itch is getting so bad i've been signing up for free trip sweepstakes, checking kayak.com for the cheapest flight to europe for next summer and getting ready to apply to the university of oslo in norway where they have an ibsen studies master's program (scandinavian higher education is FREE, even for international students). i dream of what it would be like to travel with shawn, despite his picky food habits, i know it would be such an adventure and something we have been talking about since we met over two years ago.
i feel funny about this post since i'm not the typical blogger and usually throw poetry and quotes and lists and strange photos and mysterious things at you. the point is, sending postcards is a blog worth your time...in fact, too much time. if you're anything like me, you might spend all day rifling through their journey and then a few more hours researching flight routes and prices. the daydreaming just never stops. lately its been spain and cameroon, from my previous travels, that have been haunting me. egypt and italy and thailand are now calling my name and *sigh* i guess we'll just have to see where life takes me. or us.
