the Road

Hi everyone! We're back from our European adventure with stops in London, Prague, the Alsace region of France and Paris. It was a mix of beauty, history, grunge, graffiti peppered with a ridiculous amount of walking {for me, probably not for you}! We logged 4-8 miles of walking per day per my Fitbit. Plus... traveled by plane, train, subway, streetcar, boat, tram, automobile, double-decker bus, taxi, horse-drawn carriage and an incline too. We joke that the only form of transportation we skipped was a bicycle! Took a zillion photographs, stayed in 7 hotels and created about 22 index cards, mostly with a new brush pen. 

Many of the towns in France had carousels, this double-decker is in Strasbourg, France.

Over the course of the trip, my hand pain settled into just one finger which is an improvement; with more rest I hope it will eventually be OK. My foot {toe surgery 4 months ago} held up extremely well with the help of anti-inflammatories. 

In the next week, I will go through the Nikon photos and share some fun collections. I posted a bunch of iphone photos at instagram, if you would like to see them.

Ideas are swirling, overlapping, dividing & multiplying. And it feels like Gene Wilder's line from Willy Wonka, "So much time, so little to do. Strike that, reverse it." I'm not sure where I'll start my new art escapades, but I have loads of laundry to tackle and tons of stuff to put away first!
