Of course, everyone now knows that I have an upcoming vacation this Friday. I will be leaving Buffalo this Friday for a 12-day stint down in South America.
My sister, on the other hand, who is now based in New Jersey, also has a trip. She has a business trip and she is heading down to North Carolina for a few days. She will be back in New Jersey in time for the two of us to have dinner before I leave for my flight.
My parents, who are currently stationed in Prague, are also moving. They are being transferred to Budapest, and so they will take a flight this week.
This makes me realize that somehow, my family is rather atypical. Not a lot of families are as mobile as we are. I guess it makes me grateful, that I have this life, and that I am fortunate to be able to travel and see the world. I have friends back in Manila who haven't even rode an airplane, who haven't even had the chance to have an international stamp on their passport, let alone have a passport.
So there, various members of my family will be up in the air this week. Exciting.
