I guess this means you shan't need to mail me those postcards now, krazykoodles! :P
Travel Plan. Or, why my brain cells died by the gazillions:
Had to make phone calls to credit company because it refused to process my attempts to purchase airplane tickets. Fail.
Anywhere, this is my current itinerary:
4/11: NYC – Dublin
4/20: Dublin – London Stansted
4/22: London – Edinburgh (need to buy bus ticket)
4/28: Edinburgh – London (need to buy bus ticket)
5/02: London Luton – Tallinn
5/06: Tallinn – Stockholm
5/10: Stockholm – Dublin
5/11: Dublin – NYC
The inter-UK bit is somewhat murky, because I don't know what will asukajude's living arrangement be like come end of April. (Please let me know if I can stay at your place ASAP because the hostels are charging somewhere around $100 per dorm bed, thanks to the royal wedding. O_o How early do you have to get up for that wedding anyway? I am thinking of taking the overnight coach from Edinburgh on the day before...)
As it happens, Miss Yoshimoto apparently has extra tickets to the 4/30 showing of Frankenstein, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. So. Hugely exciting, especially considering all the seats are currently sold out. Am crossing my fingers that this would work out.
I am quite thrilled to be (well, going to be) back in London again: All the government buildings I didn't visit before! All the museum collections I didn't get to see properly! All the Chinatown baozi I didn't stuff myself with! (Hmmm....baozi...)
Still a ton left to do in preparation for the trip, but I feel better now that the airline tickets are out of the way.
