I'm leaving to Wyoming for a week. It's going to be so awesome. I'm staying on a horse ranch and visiting Yellowstone among other things.

Have a nice trip Naylte!

Have fun, Naylte! :)

On Sunday evening I will be leaving for 3 days. I'm going to Marseilles to see the football match between Poland and Ukraine. I should be back by Wednesday or Thursday.

Have fun, Myrkin! :buttercup

I'm taking a break from this forum (and the others I'm a part of). There are other things I need to focus on, and I'll return when I'm done with them.

Well... I'm not, but that was a few days in Southern France and away from work, so that was a plus. It was also an opportunity to spend some time with my brother. And hey! I had never before seen a major football match like that in stadium (as opposed to watching it on tv), so that was an unique experience for me. :)

I've just returned! As I predicted, the trip was absolutely awesome. The scenery was great (especially the Grand Tetons in the distance), there was lots of wildlife (saw some coyotes, a moose, lots of antelope, even a couple bears!), and the horse that was assigned to me for the week was great.

The trip back sucked, though. It's been a long day.

Good to hear, except for the return trip part. I hope that improves.

The trip wasn't any worse than usual per se, but you know how it is with flying sometimes. Thanks to some storms over Ohio last night the flight got extended by an hour because the plane had to fly around them.

I've been away from this forum longer than I will be now without saying anything, but all the same:

I am off on holiday tomorrow - wooo! - and won't be back until later next week. In case anyone needs to contact me, although I doubt it :p, I will be entirely without internet from tomorrow until I'm back.
