Hello everyone, and welcome to my first ever (pre) trip report! I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing, so I'm just going to try and figure it out as I go! My name is Devin (aka Dervis), and in less than two weeks, my parents, my four best friends and myself will be arriving at the most magical place on Earth to ring in 2010! We began planning this trip immediately after our last trip, where we celebrated my father's triumph over a brain tumor. We had such a great time, that we decided we had to do it again. Of course, with five college students, planning and organizing, as well as finances proved to be a challenge. At one point, it looked as if our trip wouldnt be happening. It sounds cliché, but we kept dreaming, and I guess some pixie dust fell our way! Our wishes came true, and now everything is a go! Weve got our room reserved, ADRs are made, and everyone has enough money put aside! I still have to pack, but Ill wait until finals are over to worry about that. Well be there from the 28th the 7th, so a total of 11 days in the World! Everyone is super excited, obviously! I'll introduce the cast in my next post.
