ROAD TRIP

I won’t be posting for a while since I am going on a road-trip to Sweden for a couple of weeks. I am driving in a little old car with a small engine…Not made for auto-routes as her fastest “comfort-zone” is about 105km/hour, so patience will be required. I was supposed to go in my wonderful strong car, but her engine fell out (see an earlier post) so I am now driving my daughter’s car. Life is full of interesting surprises. At first I was upset about this, I will, after all, be driving about 4 000km…But given some time and contemplation, I decided on turning it into an old-fashioned road-trip where anything can happen.

I will be dancing in Amsterdam (and hopefully in other places as well), taking pic-nics by the roadside, visiting friends and family, checking out every interesting place I see and stop whenever I feel like it. This is new to me. Usually I zip back and forth as fast as possible, stopping only for gas and a pee. As the departure date draws near, I am finding myself childishly excited about my trip. Friends around me chuckle and ask if the car will even survive it. Of course she will! We’re gonna have a grand old time….Did I mention that she has an amazing stereo?
