London Heathrow Plan C

Another duty free post. I am considering this plan C if the other two options don't work out. However, I will be looking for foreign whiskey at London Heathrow. Whiskey you can't get here in Oklahoma, but here is another alternative.

London Heathrow Duty Free PLAN B

Just in case there isn't any Suntory Whiskey at London Heathrow, here is my plan B. Suntory, a Japanese company, makes better whiskey than any place in the United States. Funny. Plan C to be posted shortly. In the mean time, here is a picture of Plan B. Which is above.

Duty Free Memorial Day!

For some reason I'm really excited about buying some liquor this time at the duty free at London Heathrow on my way home. I'm pretty sure I'll be buying two bottles of Suntory Whiskey, hopefully they'll have it! If not, some foreign whiskey that one cannot get here in Oklahoma. Suntory makes my favorite whiskey in the whole world, Yamazaki. Suntory is also the whiskey that Bill Murray was advertising on the awesome movie Lost in Translation. Now, look at the picture above and tell me that isn't sexy as hell.

40 Days till Departure for Europe

Just counting down the days till I leave for Europe. I found out the other day that between landing at Amsterdam Schipol, getting the train to Utrecht and getting a ride to the place to pick up my keys for my apartment, I'll only have an hour to do all of this. Well, they said to just call and they'll wait for me, but we'll see how that goes! I'm just ready to be living in Europe for 3 weeks. I might try to do the 20 dollar trick at the airport to see if I can get a free upgrade to Europe. I'm really excited about flying on British Airways. I think on my day of departure back to the United States, I'm going to head to London Heathrow about 4 hours before hand to hang out. The usual check-in time on international travel is 3 hours ahead, but I'm going early so I can take a ton of pictures of the airport. I had a crappy film camera last time I went and didn't take a single one of the airport, it won't be the same this time around. I got an upgraded camera and memory card as oppossed to my last digital camera, so there will be pictures galore. I plan on either posting daily pictures on here or just a recap, I haven't decided yet nor figured out if I'll have wifi at my apartment in Utrecht. My first London hotel has free wifi, but the second one doesn't. Either way, loads of pictures to be posted.

Been out jogging twice a day in order to drop some pounds before I leave, it's wearing me down!

Is it July yet?

I'm so ready to leave. My job is boring and people in bars are so cliche. I'm tired of doing what I do, which will go unspecified. I've been looking at Google Streetview for the last few days doing the virtual walk up and down the streets of London surrounding my hotels and can't wait to get there. I haven't even looked into Utrecht and it's streets. As soon as my professor sends out the information on where I'll be staying I'm all over it. I've just now started to write my 8 page paper for my one credit hour I've enrolled in this semester. I just want a C and move on. I'm capable of making an A, but I don't care at this point and I'm a little pissed they made me take one credit hour. My professor is the best professor ever so I'm not worried about it. I'm just so ready to leave for Europe already. I need this vacation/study abroad like it's nobody's business.

On a side note, in regards to my normal life. I've been up and jogging/walking every morning and have switched my diet drastically. I'm getting back into drum and bass again and hopefuly I'll be reading soon enough for fun. My life is finally swinging back my way asides from my car always taking the piss.
