Today I purchased my travel insurance through World Nomads for $200. Not bad la.  Next I need to get the shots.  I need to do my taxes too!!  Also I found some free websites teaching spanish so I'll do that for a while.  I just realize I do like learning new language and I haven't done that since Japanese in college!
Okay this is only a test run...
