I've got a week to go before I fly out of Ottawa. I've purchased my plane tickets, ferry tickets, but not my bus tickets yet (those will have to wait until I actually arrive in Madrid). All of my hostels are booked (for when they'll be necessary)While in Madrid I plan on staying with a good friend of mine who's getting married while I'm there! I'm so excited for her wedding! It'll be so much fun! I do have a short list of things that need to be done before I leave, such as packing. Mostly packing. I want to bring a small bag but I'd also like for everything to fit in said bag. I have a 40L and a 60-80L bag that I can use, plus my usual 15L daypack. I guess I'll have to lay out all of my clothing and see what I actually need to bring with me. I've got a packlist in the making. I'll have to make sure that it's fully revised and printed by Monday at the absolute latest.

There's about 3 weeks left until I'm supposed to go to Spain. I've yet to buy my tickets from YOW - MAD but that should be done soon enough. I do have my tickets from MAD - FCO for July 7th, plus I've purchased my Eurail. I also booked my room in a hostel in Rome, Naples, Tarifa, and Barcelona. I'll be staying with a friend when I'm in Madrid. I'm getting sooo excited to leave but first I need to focus on school. I have 3 essays and 3 exams left with the last exam and essay due on July 4th (the day before I'm leaving). While there I will do my best to update this but it may not be as often as when I updated it in China but this is in part because I will not be bringing a laptop with me so I won't be wanting to pay for the internet too often. I will check in from time to time to assure everybody that I'm still alive. Guess that's about it for now....
