European Walkabout!

Guess what, boys and girls? I'm going on a mega-trip! Today!

If this feels sudden and vaguely-unplanned and last-minute and oh-my-god-what-have-I-gotten-myself-into to you, well, you're not the only one who feels that way. This trip was planned many moons ago, then put off for 2013 due to a series of excellent rationalizations then abruptly, suddenly, without-warning, instantly, and-then-a-miracle-occurred moved back to this year about two weeks ago. And voila! I'm getting on a cruise ship today.

And due to the rush, I've already realized I forgot several crucial things - note to self, traveling without ATM card is not advised. (And now my grandma who reads this is worried about me. Don't worry, Grandma! It's all good.)

I'm sailing off to Europe where I will disembark das Boat and gad about France and Italy for three weeks before sailing off for Egypt, Istanbul, and Greece for two weeks, then back on land for another week in Austria & Germany. So my internet connectivity, it will be unreliable. But the blog will not be neglected. I've pre-loaded some goodies to keep you entertained while I'm away. (Gladiator style, baby. Are you not entertained? Rrrrawr! ...okay. Ignore that one. I'm a little giddy with pre-trippy-ness and not making a lot of sense.)

So, to recap: Travel! (win!) No internet in the Atlantic Ocean. (fail!) Preloaded awesome! (double win!) And a release week in France. (win au francais!)

See you in France, boys and girls!
