Takin' the long way

Today begins vacation! Let me tell you, when you are a sole practitioner of a law practice without even a secretary--taking a vacation involves a lot of very stressful preparation--but that part is over--let the fun begin!

Today, Molly and I will drive twelve hours to Pennsylvania where we will retrieve her dorm stuff that Ethan moved out for her last May. It will be my first chance to see Archie and Jaeger since they moved. I can't wait for hugs from my boys.

Then Molly and I will head to DC and move her into the dorm. On Sunday after I kiss my girl goodbye for the start of her junior year, I will drive to Newark where the car will go into long-term parking and Charlie will be waiting in the airport. Then we will board a plane, buckle our seat belts and head off for two weeks of happiness and relaxation. Two weeks????? I am so excited.

First we will go to Latvia and Estonia where we will follow Charlie's family history in the Baltics. Then, we will go to Sweden where my favorite little Peace Corps Volunteer is taking vacation with us.

A friend will be covering my office for me while I am away so to keep up with that, I will need daily internet and if possible will post to my blog from the road. We have the camera, we have guide books, we have reservations at the most charming inns that Latvia, Estonia and Sweden have to offer and we have the promise of two weeks to unwind and explore!

See you soon!

This must be the summer for 'long way' trips! Enjoy yours and I hope you can keep posting so those of us Stateside can live vicariously! BTW, comment contests where you give away pictures are quite fun. (Yours is awaiting your return.)

Going on the trail of family history is always an adventure whether it takes place as a paper trail or physical exploration.
Wishing you a safe journey.
