What’s next?

10 August 2008 · 2 Comments

With only a few months left here in Potsam and Germany, my plans are finally starting to come together for my remaining time here and afterward. I am getting pretty excited about everything that will be happening in the upcoming months. I actually gave notice about leaving my apartment last week. I have a feeling things are going to begin to move quite rapidly between now and 15 November (my target date of leaving Germany).

So what is left to do in Germany?? Things that are set in stone include a few frisbee tournaments (with Ryan and Hil playing with Mother Tongue, a 1-day sand tournament in Leipzig with the local Potsdam team, and a hat tournament in Potsam), a trip to Z├╝rich to visit family Woodard, Oktoberfest in Munich, and a Billy Bragg concert. Things I would like to do, but not set in stone, include one last frisbee tournament with Mother Tongue, trips to Dresden and Prague, maybe a quick trip to Spain, and hopefully (with a bit of luck) meeting up with Edward in Istambul.

After Germany??? Dates are not completely firm, but this is the general plan… First up is doing volunteer work in Central America. I was finally accepted to volunteer with Grupo Fenix, learning and working with solar power in Nicaragua. I am very very excited about this for a number of different reasons. I am planning to be there between 1 Dec and 15 March (-ish, like I said, no plane tickets have been bought), doing a month of Spanish class first then volunteering for 10 weeks starting just after the first of the year. Afterward, I am 99% sure I will fly directly back to Alaska, starting a new job on 1 April (just waiting for the offer letter to arrive). I am also very excited about returning to Alaska, again for many many reasons.

More details to follow as they become final….

UPDATE: I updated my travel schedule tonight. I realize I need this to help keep track of myself.

    Oh, I was hoping all these travels would somehow take you through Denver for a day or two….We could use a visit with Bullet Bob!
