Goodbye to Olivia!
February 9th, 2010 by Kate

qt bye liv

We sadly bid farewell to Olivia in Queenstown after 3 amazing weeks with her!  What a great travel companion she was – fun, easy going, open minded and happy to give anything a go!  It couldn’t have been easy… the four of us spend 24/7 together, we all have our “ways”, and probably seem to the outside world like a traveling sideshow.  I wasn’t sure how Olivia would fit in to the days and nights of couchsurfing, binge reading, random meal eating, adrenaline seeking, aimless driving, giant backpack stuffing, laundry-in-a-sink and occasional bickering that naturally go along with schlepping around the world.  She was in fact an AMAZING travel companion – and our only regret is that she had to go back to school when she should really be heading off to Thailand with us! 

So thanks to Dad and Bo for sending her, and Olivia darling – we miss you and we hope you’ll catch up with us wherever we are for your spring break!

Looks like your travels continue with great success.

As things stand right now, my tour of Provence, The Pyrenes, Spain and Portugal has been set back to about the middle of May. I’m committed to a trial that begins April 26 and will probably wind up at the end of the first week of May. If my plan works, I’ll fly to Paris and make my way to Lisbon via one form or another of ground transport. I would then fly home about the middle part of June. Let me know if some variation of my trip would connect with you at some point. Bear in mind that I’m flexibe; nothing pertaining to my trip is etched in marble.

Happy Trails

Ed – you might just have to spend my 40th birthday with me in Paris! We’re in the same part of Europe around that time – for sure we’ll see you! Egypt would have been a blast – maybe we can take the boat down to Morocco from Spain for a few days instead! Can’t wait and we’re happy you’re following us – its great fun to get your comments. Miss you! XO Kate
