Elaboration.

Thursday I bought a ticket to Australia. I've never been there, and it's somewhere I can go fairly cheaply, support myself, and speak the language. It's pretty much the best time I could think of to do this sort of thing since I'm kind of lacking career employment for the moment. And in the long run, what's an extra couple grand on top of the loans I'm already going to be paying off? An extra ten dollars a month?

The ticket says I'll be gone from May 21st to August 21st. I'm going to end up missing softball, which sucks, but maybe I'll learn to play rugby or throw a boomerang instead.

I've never really traveled for any length of time, so it should be a pretty good experience.

This is pretty cool. I agree that traveling when you can without concern for the financial repercussions of a drop in the bucket is the way to go.

I've played rugby before and I love it. It is a blast.
