    Wahey! Tomorrow == Holidays at last. 

    2.5 weeks of no work.  2.5 weeks of time with the kids and a stack of books. 2.5 weeks of ignoring my mobile phone.

    I am a tad excited Smiley

    Anyone going anywhere fun for holidays this summer?

    Went to barcelona about a month ago. (Where my avatar's photo is from)

    Gotta love 2.1 month-long holidays. Next year I'll get a 3.2 month-long holiday.

    In...your...face, you gainfully employed person. Studentship FTW.

    Studentship rox0rs... Still 1.5 months left of my 3 months Tongue Out Well, and yes, I'm going to Australia - visiting my girlfriend.

    My stomach is already doing weird noises when I think about the 25 hours one way flight...

    I have no holidays yet planned, so I'm jealous.

    On the plus side though I finally get my honeymoon later this year, when we decide where we're going. That should be highly exciting.

    Enjoy your time off.

    I am currently in Northumberland.

    I like holidays to an extent, but often they make my use of the computer limited. Thankfully I have an Internet connection (and computer) in Northumberland (holiday house is here Tongue Out).

    I'm going to Sri Lanka in early December to see the first test between England and Sri Lanka (strangely enough). I can't wait Tongue Out

    Ha I'm being forced into taking this one.

    "You have holiday time right?"
    "Yes, why?"
    "I think it would be a good thing to spend some time together"
    "But I'm busy"
    "Doing what?"
    "Looking at WCF"
    "But that's not work work"
    "No but ..."
    "We're going away"
    "But"
    "And your laptop time will be rationed"
    "BUT BUT"

    I paraphrase of course.

    8/20 (i.e. next week) i'm heading to europe for 2 weeks. I'm starting in Ireland, heading to Norway, then out to Iceland. I'm super psyched about going! I have my C9 Guy all packed and ready to for some awesome photo-ops Big Smile

    I have to give credit to Virtual Earth, I planned the trip by starting in Dublin and seeing where else there is around it that looks really nice. So using expedia (for cheap air fare) and VE (for locations) I planned my trip.
