Not attending EJC 2007

Well, it's final. I will not be attending the EJC in Athens this summer. I made the decision yesterday. It turns out that the plane ticket to Athens will cost me $2150. That's about $1000 more that it would have if the travel agent had made my reservation when I asked him to.

With my hotel, food & leisure activities, and the week of unpaid time off from work, my total expenses for one week in Athens would have been near $4000.

That is enough money to keep me travelling in 2009 for about 2 months in Europe while I'm on my Do What You Love - World Tour. As much as I'd love to go to the EJC this year, I want to do the tour more.
