The France Trip Begins

overcast 0 °F

Saturday, July 16

Hello All,

I am in Virginia and will be at the airport in three hours to leave for France.

Missions accomplished so far - See the grave at Arlington and post my first message on the blog.

I feel so accomplished.

I am very excited and a little distracted and have already had one instance where I thought I had mislaid the passport. Luckily, Anthony came through and we are still together.

I am very much looking forward to my first adventure, buying train tickets and finding my hotel with a map that does not have all the streets listed.

Many thanks to everyone who has had a hand in helping me prepare for this part of my adventure: (only a partial list)including Arlene and her french tapes, Janis and my lovely Eifel Tower pocket book, Mary and Kathy for the lovely cards with helpful hints on what to do and what to say and Peter and Shane for their coaching.

I have taken a few pictures for the trip including one of my lovely cab driver, Susy H. who met me with beret, red lips, red purse, eye liner and multiple kisses on each check.

My watch word for this adventure is an open mind. As you think of me in France,dusty and warm from moving rocks, please add open mind to your thoughts.

My next posting will be from France.

Au Revior (spelling not my forte in any language)
(Good By, for now)
