I left home September 20 for a trip in Europe with Jacques. He and I and 14 family members and friends flew into Munich, Germany, then took a train to Schärding, in Austria. From Schärding, we warriors are riding our bicycles along the Danube into Vienna, Austria. Then we will make our way to Budapest, Hungary. We will cover 300 miles in total.
I was nervous before we left about two things:
- For the first time in about a dozen years, I am not packing my laptop or my datebook. Tremors. Oh my. We’ll see what happens and how buried I am when I return. When I traveled to Majuro about five years ago, I partially unplugged, but I was able to keep projects moving and respond to email. Even still, it made me anxious.
- Also, we have to ride our bikes along the city streets for a bit at the beginning and end of each day, going to and from our hotel to the bike path. I don’t even ride my bike along streets here. “Adventure,” I keep thinking. “It’s an adventure.”
I expect you will hear more about this after I return next week!
Tschüss für heute. Or, bye for now!
