In my younger years, I had the great good fortune to be able to live overseasÂ (studying abroad in college, teaching English post-college).Â Those experiences bit me with the travel bug.Â I got to indulge it again in 2002, when Scott and I took a honeymoon that included stops in Provence,
the French Pyrenees,
and San Sebastian, Spain.Â We were, by the way, twelve years old when we got married (or so it looks to me now!).
Now that we are parents, we still manage to get around occasionally.Â With the kids, we’ve managed to visit Squam Lake, New Hampshire
and sunny Jupiter, Florida (on the occasion of this photo, the boys were with Scott’s parents.Â A date-night on the water, Florida-coast style, is certainly something to toast.)
So yes: I do like to travel.Â And I’m about to embark on new kind of tour, one that does not require a passport, security lines,Â or schlepping two carseats through a crowded airline terminal.Â It’s a blog tour for my new book!
Starting next Tuesday, we’ll be visiting ten different blogs, each of whom has kindly rolled out the welcome mat for me and my book.Â Every day of the tour, I’ll be linking to the featured blog for that day.Â Check back here on Monday for the “pre-boarding message” that kicks off the whole thing.
It’ll be armchair travel at its best, and all you’ll need is an Internet connection.Â Nothing to pack, no tickets to buy, and no need to take off your shoes … unless you want to.
See you next week!
