Ciao! Arrivederci! Au Revoir! I'M OUT!
Butterflies are eating away at my intestines right now, they're fluttering up into my throat, they're making heart beat just a little bit faster than usual.
In about five hours I am boarding a plane to London......I'll be gone, alone, for two months.
Sure, I don't deserve a medal, people do this kind of thing all the time.....but not anyone that I know ;) By next week I will have had high tea, attempted to get a British guard to share a pint with me when he get off work and can "talk." I will have done things that are English cliche's and hopefully, while I'm sitting in Paris eating a croissant and writing my blogs I'll have some stories worth telling.
My iPod is fully loaded; Joshua Radin is going to sing me to sleep until I wake up across the water. Santogold is going to WAKE ME UP and make me want to party and hopefully a little Fleet Foxes will calm my butterflies down to a steady flutter.
For the next two months I'll be blogging from London, Paris, Zurich, Florence, Munich, Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Amsterdam....with some cities in between.
Me, my camera, my moxie and my guidebooks will do their best to document the whole thing.....so I'm OFF!
