Pre-Trip Checklist

Alright, so with less than 2 weeks to takeoff I need to figure out what I still have to do. I’ve got my passport (unless I lose it like last time), my railpass, international student card (good for discounts at a ton of places aroundthe world), backpack (the Kelty Coyote 4750), travel guides, and I just got some packing cubes. One of the main things that I still have to do is pack up all my stuff and try and fit everything in this backpack that looks smaller and smaller everytime I look at it. I need to  go to my doctor to see if there’s any vaccinations that I need to get. I have to get an international drivers license in case I want to rent a car over there at all, even though I’d have to take a crash course in driving a stick shift. Lastly, at least that I can think of right now, I have to setup a Skype account to talk to everyone back home. I’m probably not going to have a cell phone over there because it’s expensive and more of a hassle than anything, so anyone that wants to talk to me setup a Skype account also. Skype to Skype is free and Skype to a cell phone or landline  is only a couple cents per minute, waaaaayyyyyy cheaper than using a cell phone. Ok, that’s it for now.
