Last weekend, my son Sam and I had the lucky chance to have a share in my daughter's Great Adventure. The girls were ending their European Tour at a friends' house in Britany, so we all crammed into Terri and Robert's car and met them there for a few days.
Sitting round the breakfast table, they started to tell us their stories. Out poured a jumble of tales. As they talked, interrupting each other and often collapsing with laughter, the girls' vivacity and sense of friendship gave us a hint of the fun and excitement of their last few weeks.
I knew that Emily's adventures had been varied- my favourite text messege from her reads-
There were gentle moments too. Emily told of a happy hour spent in an English bookshop in the Jewish quarter of Budapest, drinking coffee and eating biscuits bought from a local market.
Some places moved them
They loved the sense of fun in Amsterdam-
And the famous Bolognese sauce in Bologna
They even made time for their music!

So.... we're all back home and together again for a short while and then...
watch out world because they're on to
|The Next Great Adventure!|
