2008 You’re A Peon World Tour!
I’ve bought the ticket yesterday and am feeling the nausea/elation of clicking on the ‘purchase’ button (for someone who nearly never shops, this is somewhat huge) for a thousand dollar ticket.
That is ten percent of my…annual worth.
Visiting my favorite corners of the world (outside this little nook in Fairfax Calif) – Europe.
I’ll be collecting capital cities: London, Paris and Edinburgh – and maybe even Bern. Meeting the people – old friends and new. Long before my first airplane trip (at fifteen) I saw Europe through the eyes of the great M. Sasek, who wrote and illustrated over a dozen classic kid’s travel books.
There is a bicycle trail connecting the countries of the former Iron Curtain, and I’ll be researching parts of that trail for my 2009 ride the length (4,500 miles from Turkey to Finland)…details to follow…
I’m also angling for a couple of invites to National radio shows…Women’s Hour in prtickler.
