August 14th 2010

This year's trip is a bit of a do-over - last year's attempt at a European odyssey with tthe boys, involving either the British or French Grand Prix and running with the bulls in Pamplona was an EPIC FAIL, with Tri, then Tam backing out. Tam's off to Chile for skiing this summer, but shockingly, Tri is going to Europe! By himself!!!

But I'm skeptical ... Tri's penchant for flaking out is becoming legendary, and though he sent me a copy of his e-ticket, I still suspect he forged it. I've told him more than once that, until I see him in Europe, I won't believe that he is going. And even then, I would still suspect that it's a clone, or an impersonator.

Tri's got his own plans, and mine involve bumming around the beautiful Balkan beaches in Montenegro and Croatia, with a quick little jaunt into Bosnia. There will be no running of the bulls this year, but we will manage to meet up for a handful of days in Spain, with another birthday celebrated in my adopted homeland, followed up by some bouncing around the brilliant Basque tapas bars of San Sebastian's old town.
