Aw, thanks Temp! I’m going to write down that last sentence for my compliment-keeping. I like to think I’m pretty great at assembling care packages. Or at least, I can tell when a package is really good - I sent one to Cup right before I flew to Ireland, but I was rushing so it wasn’t quite as solid as yours.
I have also always been (and probably still will be) jealous of others’ overseas travel. I had some money saved up, but I payed for nearly half of my trip with a grad gift (ie a large check) from my grandparents. I have no idea if I’ll be able to do this again within the next 5+ years. Airfare, in particular, is stupid expensive.
