The Amazing Race

That’s the only reality show I would ever consider doing and I kinda feel like I was just on it. 5 cities in 10 days- that qualifies, right??

Over the past week and a half I hit up Paris with my cousin Dana, her daughter (could someone please tell me if this makes her my “second cousin” or my “first cousin once removed”?) Carrigan and my Aunt Joan, as well as Vienna, Salzburg, Praha (known to the English-speaking world as Prague) and Munich with my fellow Oxfordian Melissa.
It was all great: the scenery, the food, the historical tours – that mostly consisted of WWII themes like fascism – and most especially and importantly the company 🙂
And now I’ve returned to my last four weeks in Oxford. I’m not ready yet to blog about how this makes me feel but be expecting some very emotional posts to come as I tend to use this web space as a therapeutic medium. Apologies in advance for any sappiness or misspellings/grammar mistakes that result from not being able to see the screen behind my tears. Ok, that’s a little dramatic but this place has kinda grown on me.
That said. Here are some pics from my fab Euro tour. If anyone from the Amazing Race recruitment team is reading my blog please note that I packed all of my belongings in one backpack (“rucksack” in Brit talk), rarely wore make up and showered only when absolutely necessary. I just feel like those are Amazing Race-type things one must be capable of…

    First cousin once removed. Your kids would be her kid's second cousins. :)The photo's from your trip looked fun and picturesque. I look forward to hearing about what adventure you are planning on embarking on next!

    I for one think you would be a fabulous pick for The Amazing Race. I would even watch the show if you were selected. You would probably win because you know how to travel abroad and are quite sensible, yet the mad-cap moments would be hilariously funny (I vote for Amy C be your travel buddy on the show)! 😉 I love coming back to read your posts and clamour for more little treasured blessings each time. The youth of your wisdom has been therapeutic for me as well and I shall miss it if there are no more posts when you return to the States. This time you have helped me discover what a Table of Consanguinity is all about! http://www.sleepyhollowcemetery.org/PDF/consanguinity.pdf

    I've been to that gazebo!! So fun. 🙂 It was great to see you recently – I hope your last few days in Oxford are blessed. I know it's a tough place to leave.
