I thought that I would end up traveling abroad during grad school a lot more than what I actually did, so now I’m trying to squeeze in some quality travel time before I start working.

Although the details are still mostly up in the air, I’m pretty happy with the overall schedule. At this point the plan is:

  • London w/ GF: 7/2 - 7/6
  • Paris w/ GF: 7/7 - 7/11
  • Copenhagen w/ GF: 7/12 - 7/16
  • China: 8/29 - 9/19

All of the flights and hotels are booked for the Europe trip, and there are enough well-known tourist sites on our agenda to pretty much consider that trip planned.

China, on the other hand, is a complete blank slate. Outside of the flights, I don’t know what I’m going to do out there, and I’m not going to plan much outside of the first few days in Shanghai. Instead, I’m just going to play it by ear and see what happens.

Needless to say, I’m very excited about both trips.
