I have taken the plunge. I have decided to be brave. I can't back out now. I have bought my tickets to Scotland.
You have to understand, other than Canada (and I'm not sure that counts anyway, not when 90% of my family are from there), I have never been out of the U.S. The WRS has pointed out to me many times that the majority of Americans don't even have passports, much less ever been out of the country. I'm not sure how accurate that is, but I took it as a challenge, so I got my passport (step one) and bought my tickets (step two). He tells me that my actions has thrown his statistics into turmoil.
This is the year of life changing experiences for me. I may as well run with it, eh?
I can't wait. ;-)
