The Quizzly Bears

A travel blog entry by caitlinnelson


... br> I passed a stall selling tour tickets to Sicily and discussed with the lady there. Egil, Lars and I will probably go for a day trip on the weekend, and I’m excited already!

When I got home I washed the carpets in my rooms and cleaned up. Things had gotten a bit unkempt in there after a few parties! I also signed my final cessation forms from work, so I am now officially retired from the Public Service at age ...

Beer pong, birthdays and buddies being blue
