|My 30th birthday with a "Radler" to drink in Germany|
But I've also been craving some sleep (hmm, perhaps related to above almost-one-year-old?) and I guess that led me to write How to Sleep Comfortably in Unusual Places on Your Travels for the same site. For the record, my all-time most comfortable unusual sleep was on the plastic benches of the McDonald's store in Vienna's airport. Honestly, I slept well! (Not like a baby. Who invented that phrase? Nobody who knew my baby, anyway).
At Europe a la Carte I've gone right to the fringe of Europe to write up The Best of Istanbul Travel Tips, and a long way north from there to do The Best of Stockholm Travel Tips. Speaking of Europe - and birthdays, as we were - that picture up the top is from one of my European birthdays. I think you might possibly believe this was not my first drink. But it was my thirtieth, after all, and in Germany you have to do as the Germans do. Prost!
And finally, a not-from-me but an about-me post: one of my delightful blogging students who now blogs regularly at her new site The Ponder Room recently wrote about how much she enjoyed my blogging course. I really do love spreading the joy of blogging although as Glennys writes, she's sometimes not sure if she should thank me or not since she can see how blogging can become a bit addictive ... but thanks for the lovely write-up, Glennys!
