June 2, 2007 – Returning Home
As with all trips, this one is already starting to feel more special as I depart. As I waited in line at the airport and talked to strangers about my experiences, they became almost exaggerated. I totally agree with my friend Karen that traveling is 1/3 the planning, 1/3 being there, and 1/3 the memories and how they expand and become illuminated over time.
Normandy, On Rue Tatin, and everyone I met on my trip have left their mark and I’m a richer person for the experience. Bon Appetit!
