I've got an itch

And it's not the mosquito bite on my left leg.


I think my blood has been altered by the unbelievable bread in Paris. Before our European trip I never had quite this same need to move. To see the world! It sounds totally corny, I know. I thought once I'd been there, I'd be content, oh no, not so. I need to go back. I can't just sit here in my own little slice of heaven and be totally sedentary anymore. It honestly feels like my body is pulling me to go and have adventures, like my muscles are twitching with excitement.

Anyone up for a little jaunt?




I was watching The Sound of Music the other day and it made it all that much more inflamed (it's like arthritis, only not so achey, and not so bad for my health). Before going I was sure that there was no place that could really be that beautiful, but I was oh so wrong.


Seriously, religious opression must have been a real bummer to make the pilgrims move.

Welcome to my world. Try living there and then having to come back. I can only imagine what it would be like being there as a normal person...
Next time we'll have to go to like Italy and Australia and do some snorkeling/scuba or something. Or, or, or... anywhere!
Next time, Eurorail pass... means first class seats, and I'm NOT going to get totally killed at Skip-bo and Uno.

Good times.
Can we go back? Please?

I'm telling you, New York is the next trip, so hop along with us. It may not be Europe, but its a trip and they do have people from all over the world there.

I had the same itch two days when I saw the airline price fare mistake from Chicago to London for a great deal. Suddenly, I was dying to go visit a mission comp who lives there and all I could think about was getting away. Alas, self-control prevailed and my wallet is still intact. But the itch remains... I know how you feel.
