Tomorrow, I’ll head off to Peru for a two-week adventure. It’s impossible to express in words my gratitude for this opportunity. My heart is full of joy and expectation.
I know I will return with stories to share, and I know that I will be surprised and amazed in more ways than I can now imagine.
To lighten my load, and because the second half of my journey will be traveling through little villages far off the beaten path, I’ll be leaving my right arm—oh, I mean my laptop—at home. With neither electricity nor internet available, and lots to write about, I’ll carry my trusty notebook and pen.
I look forward to sharing so much with you when I return.
While I’m away (if you’re in northern climes), enjoy the rest of strawberry season for me. I’ll miss it so very much. Of course, I’ll be busy trying as many of Peru’s 4,000 plus varieties of potatoes as possible; that’s pretty hard to beat, too!
To those of you who checked in on me in the last few weeks to see where I’d disappeared to, thank you for your caring. Preparing for this trip took me on many side trips and proved to be an adventure in itself.
