7 Hours Till the Big Trip
Yes, folks, in 7 hours, I'll be on my way to Athens. I still have 2 more hours at the office, so there are actually 5 hours left for....

....for my list of what I should have done, but didn't. Here it is! Should I mention I am pretty sure most of it will still remain in the "to do" state and not promoted to "done" after 7 hours?
  • get my luggage ready calmly (i.e. not in a 10 minutes race)
  • not forget anything I need back in Bucharest
  • pick my mom from the station
  • get some sleep before going
  • shower, long shower...
  • burn some audio CDs for the road
  • find already burned audio CDs
  • print maps of Bulgaria and Greece, just in case
  • download larger maps and transfer them to my laptop
  • make some sandwiches for the road (help will be available here)
  • make coffee for the road (I have this cool cup from my dad that you can use to heat the drink while driving :P)
  • buy Red Bull for the road (what?!? It's a 16-hour-drive! All help is needed)
  • talk to Trisi Sis enough to last for these few days (no chance for that now...:((. Sis, where have you been hiding?)
  • Prepare important papers such as car papers/driver's license/passport/ID. Do not forget said papers at home...
  • Pray hard that I make it in under 16 hours :D
  • Pray hard to actually find the hotel easily
  • Pray some more..
Wish me luck! I will need it. If I get back safely, I will brag about how cool I've been driving so much with no help from other drivers!

    That sounds so exciting! Have a safe trip and a wonderful time in Athens. Are you really going all by yourself? (I'll have to read back into your blog; I'll probably find the details -- I blame my ignorance on the fact that it's the final exams period here...). Anyway, that is courageous and cool!

    Five minutes later: now I know... Have fun!

    Yeah, not alone, but the only driver :) Thanks, I will try my best to have loads of fun!

    Whoa, that's a big list to do in 5 hours. Given the fact that burning a few CDs and printing maps, and searching for the maps if you don't already have them, making the luggage, showering, sleeping and praying take quite a while :), I hope you aren't exhausted in the end. Especially after sleeping. That's one stressful activity :D

    Not that I want to short circuit any of your neurons into thinking things are easier, and also I'm not 100% certain on the information, but I think it's no big deal if you forget your passport. You romanian ID is just fine within the EU (not 100% certain, because I heard at least one country still requires a passport).

    Forgot this one:

    Have fun while there! Bring pictures! :)

    Sis, if I were you I'd scrape off some of the chores to leave more room for sleep. Or is it just me to consider this one a top priority, along with picking up your mom, packing, getting the papers ready, maps, food, coffee etc. :( And don't forget one thing: It will all be worth it, I'm sure. So bring photos. And the 8ball, if you manage to find one. :)

    Have a fab time amd pick cd's that will keep you wide awake for all the driving!

    Oh sweetie, I became one of the " to do" items of your list but that is entirely my fault, ooopss, as I told you on the phone, I have been running a lot today, and didn't get the chance to talk to you as much as I wanted. But at least, I could catch you on the phone. :P

    I wish you have the best time ever with your friends and mommy! Come back with all your batteries full and I cannot wait to hear all you stories.

    Me again, I forgot to tell you GOOD LUCK, and yeah, I'll be praying for all the things you wanted, come home safely! :)

    Hi guys, thank you all for your comments! It's been a great trip, sleep was the first thing deleted from the list, but I am back home finally. Sleepy, very sleepy, and already in the office. Watch closely as lots of stories and photos will follow :)

  • At 5/02/2007 11:31 AM, Blogger Ryan said…

    Yay! (and Welcome back!)
