I know I haven't posted anything about Europe (or anything else for a while...). Its coming. I promise. As soon as I get a few minutes to myself to do anything but sleep. But, for now, a quote from Eat Pray Love that perfectly describes how I feel about travel:
...traveling is the great true love of my life. I have always felt...that to travel is worth any cost or sacrifice. I am loyal and constant in my love for travel, as I have not always been loyal and constant in my other loves. I feel about travel the way a happy new mother feels about her impossible, colicky, restless newborn baby- I don't care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because it's mine. Because it looks exactly like me. It can barf all over me if it wants to- I just don't care.
