After a long hiatus from my favorite topic (me! No, just kidding: travel), I am back! Even if no one ever reads this, I need to keep track of my wonderful summer of small trips around metro Boston, big trips to the Amazon and France, and many fortunate and fun visits with friends in Michigan and Maine.
Where to start? The summer began at Acadia National Park in mid-June, and ended last weekend in Paris. Summer began alone (visiting a college friend as I have every year when I have lived in the US) and ended with my husband in Paris, or perhaps Iceland if you count our cheap-flight layover. In between there were adventures with family — my 10 year old twin boys, my in-laws, my parents, my almost-sisters, and a little brown rescue dog named Katie. No disasters, lots of sunshine–except for during an abandoned hike to the top of Mt. Washington.
For this blog, I am using a J.R.R. Tolkien quotation: “Not all those who wander are lost” because it fits my crazy pattern of travel–here and there with a constantly changing cast of characters. So off I go. To France first. Where bone marrow is good to eat, parties go until 5, and aperitifs are de rigueur. Allons-y.
NOTE: I have moved from blogger to wordpress so please expect some amateur mistakes and bad color schemes until I figure this all out!
