Talking Going to Europe!!!

Well, the Friday AFTER this one we're going to Europe. We're taking a flight route that's something like from here to San Francisco, then to Chicago, then to London. Then we go on a 2 week cruise on a ship only a couple of feet smaller than the worlds largest cruise ship. I'm a total pig, so for me that's a dream come true. Then we spend a full week not on the cruise just kind of exploring Europe. Then I come back, and you know what?

This trip has been restricting me with Bettas. The pet sitter wont do water changes, so any fish I have has to be in a cycled tank. Well the 10g cycled just in time, but even though I have a 2.5 and 1 gallon tank open I'm not allowed to get Bettas because of ammonia and it's killing me! But after this trip, don't worry, I'm getting Bettas!

Anyways, I'm just really excited about this trip.

YAY! How exciting... that's a nice long trip!
I know what you mean. I just learned that I'll be traveling for 9 days in August and I'm already freaking out about my fish... I don't have anyone who could work as a sitter. I know it's not a long time and they should be fine if the proper precautions are taken but I really don't want to risk them.
I wanted to get another pair but that's definitely a NO NO for me!
I don't think it'll be a good idea to have another spawn either even when they'll be big enough to adopt out by then.
We'll see what happens... maybe we could start an online sitter service!

What a wonderful opportunity, Baylee. You will surely come back changed in some way by exploring other countries and cultures. Take pictures and travel safe.

Oh wow! That sounds so awesome! Lucky!
I've been to England and its very nice there! You need to go to the London Eye, the biggest Ferris wheel in the world. It gives you a beautiful view of London. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip to England.
Seriously, it sounds so much fun! Remember to take pictures!!!!
