A semiannual posting schedule is totally normal, right?
Okay, okay. Mea culpa. If I’d realized I was on the cusp of a 6-month blogging hiatus, I’d have given you a heads up.
The final leg of our European RV adventure was a mind-blowing whirlwind of awesomeness. In two short months we rocketed from Barcelona all the way to Gibraltar and then back up to Amsterdam. It was exhausting. It was fantastic.
Yes, we crammed in more stops than sane people should have. But we had the time of our lives and have no regrets.
Well, just one regret. In our attempt to wring every possible experience out of Europe, this blog was a casualty.
Imagine yourself standing beneath a thundering waterfall, the water crashing down around you. Now imagine it’s your job to catch all that water—with, say, a tablespoon. That’s pretty much how I felt during our last two months on the road. At the speed we were moving, posting about everything we were seeing and doing became overwhelming, and all that pressure was ruining the trip. Eventually I stopped blogging, shut my laptop, and just enjoyed the adventure.
I’m touched and amazed by the number of people who’ve emailed to ask how our trip turned out. Thank you for getting in touch. I can’t wait to tell you all about the end of the RV trip, along with our latest travel plans, but I’ll save it for the next post (due Thursday, incidentally, not next March).
It’s great to be back. I’ve missed you!
