Round The World plane ticket

Yes, really, there is such a thing!  Since I will be circumnavigating the planet, an RTW as it is known, allows for quite a bit of flexibility and is cheaper for me than purchasing a multidestination ticket.  As my miles are with United, I went with the Star Alliance, which has its own RTW desk staffed 24 hours a day.  You call up, make the reservations, and then have to call back 24 hours later so that the airline has time to contact the various other airlines, confirm tickets and get the taxes.  My ticket cost $5200USD.  On the one hand, my poor credit card.  On the other hand, OMG I bought an RTW!  In 85 days this Summer, I will fly around the world.  How cool is that?!  

So yes, two internships, one in Singapore and one in Uganda.  It's gonna be a wild ride people.  Keep an eye on Singapore and Uganda blogs on the left of the screen as I will be posting my adventures there.  I am so excited!
