It all begins...

rain 7 °C

I've been planning my trip to Europe for some time now, and I've been working like crazy to save up for it. It's now 76 days away, so the countdown begins! A few weeks ago I booked my flight from Vancouver to Dublin, with stop-overs in Chicago and Newark, and at $630 CAD it was a steal. I'll arrive in Dublin at 9:30am which gives me plenty of time to regroup, relax, and sightsee the first day. It also leaves me lots of time to find my hostel so I think it'll be a great way to start my journey. About a week ago my vegan passport arrived at my parent's house, and just yesterday my ticket for the tattoo came in the mail.
It's all starting! I bought my membership to Hostelling International today (after getting some advice from Matt, a friend I've met in Revy who did the same thing I'm going to do 3 years ago) and pretty soon I'll be booking my hostels for the summer, buying travel insurance, and getting any last minute items I may need! Next thing I know it'll be July 1st and I'll be having a sleepover in YVR to prepare for my trip! Can't wait!

By the way, a vegan passport is a little tiny paperback book that says "I am vegan" and "I don't eat meat, chicken, fish, dairy, eggs, butter..." etc. in 56 languages. It has pictures too! So even if I can't pronounce it, I'll be able to get my vegan food :)
