I've started my summer travel plans. I know, it seems a tad premature, but in reality, it isn't. I will only have about 4 weeks in the states, and I want to make the most of my time there. Of course, the first week will be spent with family. Then, week two is with my Virginia friends. Week three will take me to San Francisco, which is somewhere I've always wanted to go, but just never found the time nor money. And to end the month, back to family and friends in PA. I want to get back to Kazakhstan by the beginning of August, because there is always so much you want to do in your own place before school starts. And, now that I know what Astana has to offer, as well as other parts of the country, there are things I want to do.
I guess I shouldn't say that planning ahead was hard, because for me it wasn't. I just hope that with enough notice going out to my family and friends, they will be able to be around while I am there. I know they all have their own vacation plans, and that is what makes this tricky. I guess I won't know until I get there. :)
