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.


  1. I'm glad you're back.

    It's been years since I was in Europe and I have been thinking about a visit. I look forward to seeing your pictures.

    1. Marc, if you decide to go to Europe be prepared for the millions of tourists. I expected it in the big cities but the density of tourists was the same in the small towns along the rivers.

  2. I am glad you were in a wonderful place! Can't wait for the pictures and welcome back.

  3. So glad to see you writing again.

  4. Billie - You are becoming the female version of Steve Cotton - Good FOR YOU! But WHERE are all the photos?

  5. Welcome back to blogdom. You have been missed.

  6. Where are the pictures? I'll be posting one or two at a time along with a bit of blogging and also when I have them edited and processed I'll blog a link to the edited version of the trip. Trust me, you do not want to see even 1/2 of what I shot. Just give me a little time please, LOL
