Just got back home to Chicago after spending the whole month of June gallivantin’ around the country. Spent two weeks in San Francisco, then hopped over to San Antonio to pick up my 11-year old nephew Thomas to take him on a trip to Yellowstone with my dad and his wife Joy. THAT was so much fun, I’ve never done anything like that in my life. We spent a week or so in Yellowstone, then I took Thomas back to San Antonio and just flew back to Chicago this evening. I had a BLAST but I am so so so SO tired of all the running around! It’s not over either; by the time 2006 is done I reckon I will have spent the better part of this year traveling. We’re in the process of booking another tour in Europe for later in the fall (a make-up tour for the one that got cancelled in May) and I’ll also be going to Australia, hopefully, before the year is through.
This’ll be a busy month for me traveling-wise. I’m going out to California for a little visit, that’s coming up real soon here, then later in the month I’m going to Yellowstone! With my dad and his wife, and one of my nephews, who’s 11 years old. I’m so excited. The Cali trip is all about the chillin’ and hanging out with friends, and the Yellowstone trip is about spending time with family, and taking pictures of nature-y things. I’m such a city gal, it’s pretty crazy to imagine myself out in the middle of all that… just miles and miles of dirt and cactus and stuff. Hee!! I have no idea what it’s like, I’ve never done nothin’ like that. So I’m very psyched. And rumor has it I’ll have at least some internet access for my laptop. And another cool thing is that my dad’s gonna loan me his spare digital camera for that trip. It’s a way WAY better camera than the one I’ve got, and you know I’m a gadget freak so I’m going to want to fiddle with that thing as much as I can. So you can definitely expect lots of action on my Flickr this summer!
