Seven days before our great escape and it feels like a million years before we are going to step onto the plane and embark on what could possibly turn out to be the best time of our lives.
Besides updating this travel log, I've got a handful of things on my mind. I just returned from Vancouver after a slew of interviews for graduate student positions (which seemed like slap of reality after all this trip planning). After falling in love with the mountains and coastal landscape all over again, I find myself making PRO and CON lists in my head all day long. Although in Vancouver we'd be living the fast paced bigger city lifestyle (not to mention weekend trips to Whistler) jam packed full of things to do and places to see, Calgary offers a less expensive version of it all. Banff and Lake Louise are just a few hours drive and offer the luxury of pure wilderness and breathtaking hiking trails along glacier fed lakes.
Regardless, wherever we decide to go I'm sure it will prove to be a nice change from what we're used to in Southwestern Ontario. Who knows, I may fall in love with the UK and all of this decision making will disappear into the back of my mind. Oh, to be young and stupid and full of adventure......
