The Countdown has begun…

I leave for Oslo, Norway late August 10th. I have six days left, but already I have taken care of a lot of things:
• Got all of my shoes purchased, 3 pair, one white pair of Adidas, a black pair of Steve Madden’s, and some sweet Men's Merrell Chameleon II Stretch hiking shoes.
• Acquired my International ID card from the University of Minnesota Learning Abroad Center. This will make it easier to get into museums and other student events at the student rate.
• Picked up some school supplies
• etc.
There are still a lot of things that I have left to do. I hope to set up a new blog soon about my adventures in Norway and possibly purchase a Flickr Pro account for uploading digital photos that I take when I’m abroad.

But first…Kristen and I are heading to the cabin for the weekend, hopefully Saturday thru Monday, to enjoy a weekend at the lake just the two of us :-D

My dad and I, just came back from the lake having finished the siding and window project, described in the last post. We also put in the new air conditioner so that my Grandfather can enjoy the lake and not be too affected by the heat wave that Minnesota and the rest of the Nation have been experiencing.

Figured since I haven’t posted in a while, I would let the blogosphere know what’s going on in the life of the author Ain’t Nothin but a Drew thing…if anybody reads anymore ;)

Until next time,

Hey man,
Good luck with your study abroad, you will have a blast.
You and your girl should be fine, you guys are great together so you should have no problems.
Remember, don't lose sight of why you are studying abroad in the first place.
While you are there, seize each day like it will be your last day in Norway.
And have fun.

Hi there Andrew, I hope that you finally made it to Oslo after your series of missed flights. I've been wondering...

I had a Gatwick airport adventure of my own with my carry-on bag - but the cats are alive and well.

Ciao! (from that crazy woman you sat next to on NW 32 from Detroit.
