Plane tickets!

I bought about $2000 worth of plane tickets last night.  It was a huge hassle and I ended up having to call Expedia twice, since I was trying to book flights for both my boyfriend and I, but we're leaving on separate flights, 4 months apart, and returning together.  We also had the added challenge of both wanting veggie meals.  

Expedia had a great price on weekday direct flights to São Paulo, but they were a real hassle to work with, as they refused to help me book my return tickets together, so we don't have a guarantee that we will be seated together.

My flight leaves from Pearson Airport at 11:30 PM on April 29th, and arrives in  São Paulo Guarulhos the next day at 10:40 am. 

My lovely boyfriend will be flying out to join me in São Paulo on August 27th, after he finishes his work term. 

We´ll be flying back together on September 11th, with a stopover in Chicago.

Hello, World.

I should be working on a design project for my Municipal Engineering class right now, but I'm getting distracted looking up airfares to Brazil, and setting up this blog for my trip.  Naughty, naughty little engineer.

I'm going to start this off by figuring out how to post pictures:

This is a picture of me on my last trip to Brazil, with my cousin Larissa (left) and my sister Birdie (right) at an Engenheiros do Hawaii concert.

I can't wait for my trip.  I'm so excited for this internship, and for the chance to see my family again!
