Hello copious readers,
Just wanted to write a quick hello to let ya’ll (we say ya’ll in Kentucky!) know that Christina’s going to be holding down the (hypothetical) fort for the next two weeks or so. I’m headed off on my first solo international adventure in a few short hours — to Great Britain!
Those of you who have read our profile page (About Lisa & Christina) know that this isn’t my first solo adventure… In fact, one of my first (and my greatest) Onely moments occurred when I decided to drive alone (well, with my dog) all the way from St. Louis to California and back again about two years ago.
Now, I’m traveling alone again — this time overseas! I have only traveled overseas a few times, and never alone — and never to Europe – so I’m actually pretty nervous, but also (obviously) super-excited. I decided that going to the UK made sense for my first solo international adventure because 1) there’s no language barrier; 2) I have a friend who lives/studies in Cambridge; and 3) there’s no time like the present — to start somewhere!
Plus, I turned 30 a few weeks ago and I needed to celebrate!
I’ll try to pop in off and on when I have internet access just to say hello and report on the joys of traveling solo! If you have any suggestions for me (and others) based on your own experiences traveling alone, feel free to post in the comments section below.
