Holy fucking shit, I actually bought the tickets tonight.  For some reason, the fares went down over $100 since yesterday.  (Thank you, cheapflights.com!  Best flight deals, all in one place!)  Because of that, I bought the tickets tonight, before the price could increase again.

I fly out on the day before Thanksgiving and I return the following Wednesday.

I AM SO EXCITED.  And scared.  And a bit terrified, frankly — but I AM SO EXCITED that I am finally having the kind of spontaneous adventure of which I’ve dreamed for so long!!
