Some tickets bought, dates confirmed

So I done registered for Birthright, changed my mind to do the Israel By Bike trip. Things are just cooler on a bike. Plus, I want to become a more serious biker. I came up with all kinds of ideas to bike across Eastern Europe to hit up my ancestors' towns and live out there for several months. Buy a bike in Prague, sell it in Istanbul? It can happen...
Anyway, the Israel trip should be figured out by the end of the month/beginning of next month. Then I can buy my ticket to Spain. I think I'm going to spend more time in Granada because my friend is staying there (place to stay and someone familiar with whom to share the experience). I had to cut out Sevilla and Valencia :-( The Israel trip is later than I anticipated, but hey, it's all for a reason. More time less places, right? That's what I should be focusing on. I cut out Switzerland, too bad. I'm gonna spend a bit more time in Italy and Berlin, though.
Did I mention that the flight over to Spain includes a night in Athens? That oughtta be fun, a day in Athens. After having bought some plane tickets, things are looking so good now. I feel like it's really happening, and I'm not just talking anymore. This trip, as great as it will be, is my first experience traveling alone for real. It is merely a foreshadow of what is to come.
