After a consecutive journey of planes, trains and automobiles (plus ferries, buses, subways, and skytrains), Richard and I are now in Europe. Previously, I gave you all permission to smack me if I dared blog from this trip. I’m now hoping that you don’t take me up on that! Inspired by others who are currently blogging from the Francigena, I’ve decided to attempt the same. As I will not be far behind them, their posts have been extremely helpful to me. At the same time, I’m hoping that my posts will let family and friends know where I am and freshly record my experiences as they happen (I don’t completely trust myself to do this after the fact). With long days ahead, only my iPhone to use, and sketchy WiFi at best, I can’t promise consistency…or editing. In an attempt to make this all work, I will sadly need to take a break from all other blogging (including commenting on my favourite sites). I will try to use this space as a good place to reach me. I greatly appreciate your comments and will reply to them all. I apologize in advance for any delays.
Right now, we are in Lincoln visiting our son, Creighton, who is a researcher/lecturer at the University here. So far, we’ve taken in the Castle, Cathedral, Wall Walk, Steep Hill Climb, Museum, West Commons….and a pub or two. If you know the area and have any other hidden gems to suggest, I’d love to hear about them!
As an added bonus, as I type this, Creighton is preparing dinner. How cool is that?!
Before I rush off to eat, I leave you with this song that has been playing in my head since we arrived here. Take it away, Charlie!
Next stop: Pisa and Lucca. I hope that you’ll continue to join me!
