We officially bought our tickets around the world. It was very exciting because it made our trip feel a little more real. We are not leaving until February 9 (just in case we need to go to Miami for a Feb. 7 Superbowl!) Our itinerary is as follows: Fiji, New Zealand (North and South Islands), Australia (and Tasmania), Bali, Singapore, Thailand, Nepal, India, Abu Dhabi (and Dubai), Greece, Croatia, Slovenia, Monaco, Germany, Sweden, Scotland, and Iceland! If anyone has any tips about these places, let us know. A lot of where we are going and what we are doing is because of friend recommendations!

I have considered cancelling this trip because I do NOT want to get shots! I have a huge fear of needles and I rather cancel the trip than get poked with one. Nonetheless, I got the shots. After a huge ordeal with my doctor, I ended up taking a mixture of meds (not recommended) and arriving at the travel clinic with Shawn. Even with all of that stuff, I was still crying and refusing the shots. The travel clinic doctor finally gave up and prescribed me something to calm me and we rescheduled. When Shawn went to get the car though, I finally fell asleep (thinking I wasn't getting the shots anymore) and he brought me back into that clinic where I continues to nap on the doctor bed. The nurse then came in and gave me my shots while I slumbered. I am so glad that they are finally over and that Shawn and the nurse were so patient with me!
And, to applaud my bravery (or the fact that I did not die from the meds I took) my mom sent me flowers and Shawn got me a Halloween costume.
Shots...check. Now I have to figure out how to pack!
