While I’m in town for 3 straight weeks with no travel (absurd!), I’ve been daydreaming about a potential Bar trip. It’s kind of a tradition for people to go on a big trip after taking the Bar. Basically, I graduate on a Friday, the following Monday my Bar Review course starts, and I’ll essentially be studying for 2 straight months until the last weekend in July!
That leaves August for travel!
I have 4 competing ideas:
1) relaxing but beautiful and adventurous option: travel around Italy for a week or so, and then relax in Greece of 10 days or so (I haven’t been to either country yet!)
2) not very relaxing but very adventurous option: hit up a string of the western european countries I missed last time in a 3-4 week travel extravaganza! (Berlin, Germany; Prague, Czech Republic; Budapest, Hungary; Vienna, Austria; Venice, Italy; Rome, Italy; Athens, Greece).
3) lifelong dream option: finally take my “cross country” U.S. roadtrip and hit up a lot of the landmarks I’ve always wanted to see (Crater Lake in Oregon; the Grand Canyon in AZ; Mt. Rushmore in SD; Niagara Falls; etc.)
4) safe option: stay home and save money. In these unsure economic times, it’s probably not a good idea to be dropping a lot of money to travel. The downside to this is that it is likely that once I start working I won’t have a chance to do any of 1-3 for a VERY long time.
