    Great start. Loved hearing how you came to love travel. Thank God for adventurous parents who taught us to look beyond the borders of everyday life.

    Catherine, was für ein Einstieg in deinen neuen blog! Wunderschön geschrieben. Deshalb antworte ich auf Deutsch, denn auf Englisch kann ich mich ja nur blamieren.
    Ich bin schon ganz gespannt, mehr zu lesen. Und verrate mir noch eins: wo im Westerwald lebt deine Familie Petri? Das erfahre ich jetzt, wo ich wieder nach Koblenz gezogen bin…

    Beautifully written Catherine – I remember similar experiences while camping in France as a teenager! We drove around the peripherique outside Paris about 20 times before Dad could indicate off in his right hand drive car… and then there was the time we got trapped in a parking lot in Lyon because our coin jammed the machine on the way out – needless to say the continuing queue of irate natives behind us didn’t help!! I look forward to lots more insights on your travels – I always view the photos you post with envy but also with much interest 🙂 Bring it on!!

    Great to read. If you haven’t already got them, you can usually get widgets to autopost new entries to twitter and facebook. Also be great to post some more of your photos like above too. And plentiful keywords will ensure some google hits. Good luck. X

    Hi Catherine,

    It is appropriate that I read your debut posting while traveling. I’m on a train heading from Providence, Rhode Island to New York City.

    I enjoyed reading about your visit to Carnaby Street in London and seeing your first punk rocker. I too recall visiting there as a boy. For me as well, it was a cultural eye opener. The year was 1967. Bell bottoms and mini skirts were commonplace rather than the spiked neck chokers of the punk folk.

    I look forward to following your journeys. Good luck with this blog.
