for work, i could have gone to south africa on a tour for the bubble, but my boss couldn't approve the time off :/

next year though, i'm definitely taking advantage of some free fucking travel

i'm so jealous of you, jan

take it as that for me it is probably the last chance to go somewhere far away like that, as next time I'd have to pay it on my own. You can always go ;)

this year they are offering Italy, Peru, London & Paris, and Croatia... but i don't think i will be able to make any of them

Peru could be nice!
No, no Costa Rica for me.
But in August I am going to Brazil! To the Amazon Basin! The very last assigned trip from Toronto.

holy shit, that is awesome!

why is that your last trip? :(

i'm assuming because the others broke the bank?

because I am done with school here in Toronto and I am moving back to Europe. My new employer will have no budget/interest in these exotic locations, but that's fine with me. I don't mind staying in the Scandinavian corner - quite to the opposite! :)

woah, excited for your trips! I look forward to hearing about them. africa is a pretty big place, but know that you always have an open invitation here and i would be more than happy to have you visit.

sorry to hear about the letter. it's not uncommon for them to get completely lost, as i've had several disappear from here on their way to the u.s. Maybe one day it will show up....

safe travels :D

I'm amped man!
I have been messed around by some festival organisers here which has put a small spanner in the tour plans but it shouldn't clash with dates!
do you have to be in CT that whole time?

Barden, did you get my email(s)? I don't want to get stuck on the streets of Cape Town for a night. Thanks
