Where is Billie?
Where am I? Well, now I'm home in SMA. Oh, but the places I have been. I was gone for a month. I was in Texas, Czech Republic, Germany, Luxembourg, France, back to Texas, then home to Mexico. It is a long story that started a year ago and I think this story was one of the reasons why I chose Reservations for One for the name of the blog last March.
I have some dear friends who started planning a trip to France last September and they invited me to join them, but as their plans progressed their itinerary became more complicated. I felt overwhelmed at the time with all the details so I backed out of going with them.
Still, the idea of going on a trip in Europe intrigued me. So I started looking for something where I would not have to worry about getting from place to place. A River Cruise with AMA Waterways won...Europe's Rivers and Castles.
The tour included a few extra days in Prague and Paris but I wanted more time so I added additional days to each city. I'm so glad I did this trip. I saw a lot of places I never would have seen otherwise, I met some really nice people, and I found out that I CAN travel by myself.
I'm not going to write a town by town description of my adventure but over the next few weeks I'll share some pictures from the trip and some thoughts that came to mind as I traveled. So keep checking in. I'll be blogging again.
