I had lots of visitors last year and so far it looks like 2009 is going to shape up to be another fun year of people visiting me and me visiting them!

One of my former coworkers messaged me last night to say he’ll be in the area for a week staying with his brother. I’ll meet up with him next week. Then I’m going to Vegas for a reunion with my university housemates in March, then my parents are coming, and then I am planning to take 3 weeks off, 1 week of which I’ll spend in Sydney with Rabbit working remotely, then 2 weeks doing other stuff on vacation days. I haven’t specifically planned the other stuff but I’m vaguely thinking south and south east Asia. We’ll see. Flying around between various countries there seems a little expensive, so I’ll probably just pick one other must-hit destination and then pick whatever is cheapest near that. I also found a few local air passes that might offer flight expense relief.

Once I get back from my trip, my best friend from highschool is scheduled to visit for a few days.

After that plans are a little sparse and non-specific, but based on my experience of getting surprise emails from people saying  “I’m visiting San Francisco!” I’m pretty confident they’ll flush out nicely. So far I have plans to squeeze in a trip to Canada in July for the long weekend, and there are some plans for Julie and hopefully Picnic Buddy to visit in the fall. I have a free flight on Southwest so I might use that to go to Boston and visit a university friend who visited me this past December. She really loves Boston and said I should visit in the fall. I already booked a ticket back to Canada for US Thanksgiving. If budget allows I’d also like to go to Illinois to visit my cousins and their baby at some point this year, hopefully on Memorial Day or Labour Day weekend so my family can drive down and meet us too!

I’m really happy I moved to a city that people like to visit!! And I’m also really happy I get 3 weeks of vacation a year! hehe :)



  1. We’re planning on visiting too, maybe later this year ;) Hope that’s ok!
