The past couple of weeks since the New Year really have been really hectic, as plans for the big move to London start to heat up. It's starting to see a lot more "real' now, as a lot of these pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place. so far, I have managed to rent my condo for the time I'll be away - luckily to someone I know and trust, which is fantastic. I've also sold my truck - a little earlier than I would have liked, but better to do it early than not at all I guess.
On the London front, I've been getting a lot of e-mail from the rental agents, and have seen (online anyway...) some places that look pretty good. I have an appointment when I get back from Vegas to do the next step in the process for securing my visa for the UK, which is the last major hurdle before I book my ticket, and move on over seas.
This week, I'm in Las Vegas for the annual Business Object Partner Conference at the Bellagio hotel. I must say, this is a pretty nice way to make my last trip in the US for a while. :-)
The Bellagio is one of the nicest, high-end hotel on the strip - it's the one with the big fountains that go off, timed to music at night. It's a pretty spectacular show. The hotel itself is very upscale - my room is huge, and very nicely appointed. Even the drapes are automated!
It's not a long trip - just until Wednesday, but I really do love Vegas, and it was great to get back here one last time - well for a few years anyway. I've played some poker, but as this is a work trip, sadly, that will have to take a back seat, and get fit in where it can.
