Here's what you've missed:
-I did it! I left all that I've ever known and am staying temporarily in St. Paul, MN.
-Before arriving to St. Paul I semi-aimlessly wandered around Canada - with stops in Niagara, Toronto, 1000 Islands, Adirondacks NY, Montreal, Ottawa and Grand Marais MI. The entire trip was fantastic, quite relaxing and precisely what I needed. The final driving count ended up at over 2,400 miles!
-In the beginning of August, I had decided that I wished to visit the Caribbean since I've never been - and I felt as though I deserved a vacation. I purchased tickets from Minneapolis/St. Paul International to Luis Muñoz Marín International in San Juan, Puerto Rico for September 20-25th.
In the end I’ve decided to test the water and tour the Caribbean maybe? This is a last second decision, which is only giving me about four days to get my life in order so I will be able to make this happen for a while. BUT since I’m amazing - I already have everything all set, haha.
I am off to Puerto Rico in two days, then I will have five days to tour around. On the 25th, I plan to arrive on the island of St. Thomas - wish me luck!
