From Cambridge to get the girls and off we went, I have not
had a free moment or space - both in my head and literally
I write to you now from the London Stansted Airport.
A hair-raising, "Yes, I'm a bonified California driver" 3+ hour drive
from a cottage in the British countryside ensued....and he we are.
If you're wondering, I never worried for a moment.
With less than 20 minutes to spare for check in, we were met by the
rental car agent at the departure curb. After calling on the race over
(doing 85-90 on the M25 is indescribable...) he agreed not only to
meet us there but to take £40 and fill the tank for us.
Black Sheep Girls have all the luck.... usually...
Do I want to tell you the story of the London taxi driver that took an hour
off the meter and let us tag behind him as we found our way to the
flat? .... London by car? I never said I could do that!
Okay, I'll save that story for another day.

beautiful place in all of England. Both the people and the fairy
dust floating around the air, make for a place you never want to
So here I am back, back to being at Stansted...
The girls have gone on to Stockholm without me until we
meet in 3 days for our first leg of the Scandinavian tour.
I sit here in an Italian Cafe, with my cappuccino and chocolate,
about to head to Innbruck, Austria.
I live my life by the minute, never mind the day.
Things like cappuccino's and chocolate really keep me going.
Taking chances and hearts along the way, I am learning how
to keep some of the treasures I collect for myself.
So until next time....
