Who knows how often I'll get to post here while we're in Europe, so I've taken the liberty of grabbing stuff I've written here in the past to keep the not-so-fresh material coming. I'm writing this last month … that is, as I type these words it's April 29 but it won't get posted until May 29. To add to my obsessive-compulsive nature, I'll be quoting from something I posted on an earlier May 29, in this case, May 29, 2006, in which I wrote:
We are not, I fear, the kind of travelers whose tales make for interesting reading…. we are very good at doing nothing, which makes us excellent traveling companions but rather boring in the final analysis.
Let that serve as a warning over the next four weeks.
