Planes, Trains & Automobiles

Trip Planning (Transportation)

I've been so busy planning for my trip, there is so much work involved to make sure everything is lined up, bills paid in advance, etc. I literally will be traveling via planes, trains, automobiles, with some boat and bike excursions throw in. But I woke up in a panic on Saturday around 3:00a.m. I had forgotten all about applying for the International Driving Permit. Fortunately, it was very easy with AAA, you just have to fill out the one page application, supply two passport style photos and pay $15. Not too bad for the priviledge to drive a cute itty bitty European car, which I plan on doing in the French country for about two weeks.

We won't even mention that my accomadations are only a 1/3 booked, that my computer may be is on the fritz, and I need to back up everything before in case. But I have some fantastic guest bloggers sporadically scheduled for you the next couple of weeks. I'm very excited about this because they not only help lighten my load a bit, but I get to introduce you to some great new girls, some of my favorites in fact, and this is my first time hosting guest bloggers!

  7. I remember way back when I was living stateside, and had to get an international drivers license, AAA does make it so easy, now I'm only a Japanese driver, so when I go abroad I have to apply for an international one as well.. isn't that funny?

  8. Hope you have an awesome trip. Have a blast and be safe!
