In exactly 2 weeks from today, at 12:25pm central time, my plane will take off and send me into a journey that we’ve been planning for roughly 2 years now. On Friday August 13th (Friday the 13th? uh oh!), we will land in our new home of Amsterdam. 2 weeks still sounds like a long time, but in other ways it sounds so imminent. I still have quite a lot to do, including going through my clothes, packing, and getting some things straightened out at work.
Today I signed up for Skype and bought the unlimited calling to US plan. If you have a Skype account, feel free to hit me up. In the meantime, while waiting for time to pass, I’ve busied myself reading blogs & tweets about Amsterdam, and watching some youTube videos. My current favorite is the song ‘Amsterdam’ by Guster. I can’t embed it, but you can watch it here.
