Hello Fellow Adventurers,
Just wanted to see if anyone else is on this tour. I know Anne and her Grandson will be joining. I am getting excited and thought we can start to get to know each other.
My name is Suzanne, but I go by Suzie. This is a belated 50th birthday gift. It has been 30 years since I have been able to travel. Because of work, I will arrive early morning on the 3rd but will be extending my days in Paris at the end. I am looking forward to so many things on this adventure. Including hiking in the Swiss Alps. However, I am not looking forward to the Gondola to get there. There is just something about hanging from a wire in a little basket. I will do it though. I may be sitting on the floor crying holding my phone/camera up to take pictures, but I will do it.
EDIT – I wanted to give a heads up. I do not want my fellow tour members to think I am crazy – yes, a little unique – but not crazy.
I will be bringing a stuffed monkey with me. (Bongo) There is a story with Bongo. I mentioned to my sisters that I was thinking of not taking him, they almost killed me. One even asked if I was on drugs. I seriously think that if I do not take him, I will get a package at one of the hotels with him in it.
Here is Bongo’s story. Many, many years ago he was stolen from me. The following Christmas I received a scrapbook with pictures of Bongo all over London and Paris. For many Christmases afterwards I received updates of his travels – Japan, China, California, Rhode Island/East Coast, New Year’s Party and from university. He left me naked. He now has a passport, fanny-pack, backpack and clothes including a French beret. (He is only going with clothes on his back.)
Hope to hear from you!
