Traveling Abroad

Posted from my ipod

I spent hours in London Gatwick airport on Wednesday, but I couldn't bring myself to pay 9.95 £ for about three hours of Internet access. Now I'm visiting family in the French Alps and thank goodness for wifi, my new ipod touch and a little app called iBlogger that makes it easy to publish to the blog.

I love traveling abroad. I know that Europe is similar to the US in many ways, but there are enough differences to take you out of your comfort zone. The French Alps are covered in snow, and there is a rocky river rushing by about ten meters behind the house. Think chalet, small village, good friends and good food. There is a different feel in the air. Makes you realize that there's more than one way to experience life. I always come away with a new resolve to really live it to the max.

Isn't that what a vacation is for anyway?

Ciao mes amis
