Going to spend some of the money I saved by renting all this time and take a month long trip to Europe.

First going to work on my Irish Gaelic in Ireland for two weeks, then will check out Scandinavia.

You mean Upper Scandinavistan?

We shall see. It's going to be interesting.

How much ancient and well-documented intolerance have the Scandinavians imported in the name of tolerance?

Patrick is off to Europe

Be sure to tell them your an 11-year-old refugee. That way you get to break all the laws.

Safe travels Patrick.

A little surprised you are only going to two places with a full month, but I guess it'll allow you to see more within those two places than you would otherwise.

Have fun. Went to Cork, Dublin, and parts of Northern Ireland in 2012 and really loved it.

Patrick, have good time in Europe. Here are few tips for visiting Ireland:

Thanks, it's my fifth trip to Éire. Big fan of Guiness. No other dark beers are even half as good.

My only fear is the Irish custom that every man buy his round for the group. The volume one is required to drink gets problematic in groups larger than 10.

Wear a chastity belt. You are going to places filled with rapefugees.

Give them all a fidget spinner then back out slowly.

I would LOVE to hear honest feedback from Europeans about Trump and the state of US politics. Please wear your MAGA hat in a pub and make some friends/frenemies.

Don't forget the Alps. You can take a train to Grindlewald and hike numerous trails from there. And they have hotels with restaurants that serve alcohol as well as food up in the Alps in the most unexpected places so you can reward yourself with a nice beer and decent food at the end of a long hike.

The only part of a camel that would be acceptable is the toe. :-)

Checked out the Cliffs of Moher yesterday. Just as beautiful as the photos, and twice as dangerous. Strong winds and a narrow path on top of a high cliff.

We're planning to stay in the Bay Area for now, since our rent is reasonable for the area, and my wife has a job she likes. I plan to get a job when I get back from this trip.

It does sound like fun to live somewhere really different while we're young enough though. Good suggestion. That will now percolate in my brain.

We got 4 weeks after 20 years and 5 after 25 years and I didn't think long vacations were in the perk packages for IT types in the Bay Area so now I understand.

Good thing you don't live in one of those awful socialist countries with 6-8 weeks off a year.

Ah, being in-between jobs makes for the best vacations doesn't it?

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
