Heading out on our family trip to Italy! It is 25 degrees and partly sunny. The roads are cleared off from the snow over the weekend. We had a calf sneak out last night. A lady stopped at the house last night when I was packing. She said she saw it running down the side of the highway and came to the house to let us know. We chased it back. Hopefully all goes well while we are gone. We are very thankful for the help with all the chores while we are gone! Our first flight out of Appleton is delayed. We have been rebooked to go through Madrid, Spain now instead of Philadelphia. Let the adventure begin!... read more

Final Day 514 Miles today 7 hours on the road Total Miles: 2300 round trip The Best Western hotel had a comfortable bed and pillows and the continental breakfast was ok. I would give the hotel 4 motorcyles. It had towels next to the desk for wiping down your bike because it is located right next to the Harley Davidson store so they think about bike convienence. However, Steve enquired about a railroad discount and the clerk/manager said no because UPRR does not stay there. What a bunch of crap. Low on vacation funds and tired of the road, we left Alberta Lea at 8:15 a.m. and at about 8:45 a.m. ran into rain. We did not have our rain suits on so we got pretty wet, Steve decided to pull over under a bridge so ... read more

I am figuring out how this blog works at the eschool office with my guru, Erik. He is so glad that I am falling into the online world with this new adventure. After all, I am a bit over 50 so it doesn't come naturally.... read more

I apologize for my absence in keeping up with this blog! So much has happened in the past couple of months that I should probably fill you in on.... First off: I am HOME. After an amazing 5 months abroad, I am back home where I belong. I wouldn't have traded that experience for anything, but if you mention flying or backpacking across Europe to me right now, I might throw something at you. Give me some recovery time on those two subjects:) Although I am home, I do believe that I left a part of me in Scotland. I plan on going back someday with my future husband. Ya, you heard right, Nathan and I are engaged! (More on that in a bit...) Nathan and Hannah came to visit shortly after I got back from ... read more

I am leaving the country today! The last two days I spent packing and finally got everything done last night. I actually had room left over in my two suitcases! Big surprise for me! I must say that the best part of my packing ability involved me being able to shove 10 granola bars into one of my shoes (Yes, I know, I am asking for 'big foot' jokes). My dad is driving me down to Milwaukee, when I will say my last goodbye and be on my merry way. Thanks to all for the good luck, the prayers and the wonderful sentiments you left with me! God be with you till we meet again!! Lauren... read more

I can't believe it! I leave for Scotland in less than a month, on January 29th to be exact. There is still so much to little time. My preparation for leaving the country started a while ago...gathering little things here and there and getting things in order. I am lucky enough to have two travel buddies that are also attending Aberdeen. There are 6 of us all together that are going to Aberdeen. I start my adventure in Milwaukee and fly to Chicago and then from Chicago to London and then London to Aberdeen. The flight from Chicago to London is only 7 hours and 35 minutes, so it's not to bad. Hopefully just enough time for me to gather my wits and realize I can't turn back now! The most frustrating issue I have ... read more

WE only stayed there one night but went and to a brewery for a tour, had some samples and had homemade ice cream all before noon. Then we set off for Green Bay and just missed the last tour of the day.... read more

After Noreen and Sean left it was time for Brendan and I to drive the 200+ miles to the Minneapolis Airport. He was an excellent navigator. I do not recommend bringing and RV to an airport. Very stressful. We picked up William and Jeannine and headed for Chippewa Falls. We pulled into the first campground and heard banjos so we immediately went to another down the road that was HUGE. Had some burgers and tossed the frisbee. Plan on doing a brewery tour and then head to Green Bay this afternoon.... read more
