I’ve been everywhere man October 31, 2008

My travelling son will be home on Monday. Hard to believe that four months as gone already. A pity his adventure has to come to an end.  He said he hasn't been homsick, but he won't be sorry to be home. For a while anyway.

So in the past four months these are the places he has seen. Not bad to be 18 and able to say you've been to them all.

London
Paris
French Riviera
Florence
Rome
Corfu
Pompeii
Greece
Venice
Vienna
Prague
Munich
Swiss Alps
Heidelberg
Amsterdam (hmmm)
Edam
Calais
Madrid
Granada
Seville
Lagos
Lisbon
Barcelona
Valencia
Bunol
Bruges
Lybeers
Liege
Brussels
Washington DC
Boston
Buffalo
Niagara Falls
Toronto
Montreal
Austin
San Antonio
New Orleans
Miami
Orlando
Philadelphia
New York
Los Angeles

He's probably ready to come home for a rest.

Daz sopke to him the other day – I said, ask him what he wants for dinner his first night home. Nachos he said. I said, he's been eating nachos all over the world! Musn't be as good as mine though. I do make good nachos.

    LOL! When he got off the phone he told us of that conversation and said "Cat, makes the best nachos there are"…… you might be up against some competition now though – some good nachos are to be found in LA!

    we'll see, we'll see – let LA try

    Wow! That's one well-travelled kid. Good for him! Love your new banner, btw.

  4. Waterbaby Says:

    he's been gone for four months?! seems like just yesterday you were posting about him leaving.

  5. cat Says:

    he's already planning his next trip – wants to wait until he's 21 though so he can go into the bars. You crazy americans, not letting your kids drink until they're 21.

  6. cat Says:

    lol, I know, that time has flown. Will be nice to see him but I feel a sorry for him that it has to come to an end so soon. Although his dollars are disappearing pretty fast now with our dollar conversion to yours so bad.

  7. Waterbaby Says:

    he's young. he has plenty more time to travel. yeah, our economy's fucked up. (p.s. not my fault!)

  8. An Ex-Expat Says:

    Washington, DC, hu?. That's 'my' neck of the woods. If he limted his visit to just the museums etc., I suspect he may have found the experince a bit of a yawn. If he hung around Georgetown or Adams-Morgan, well…… 😉

  9. cat Says:

    he only spent about four days there – not sure where he went yet. He really liked Miami – said he'll go back when he's 21 so he can go into some of the bars.

    wow! How old is your son? Ask him to visit Japan & Malaysia too! :))

  11. cat Says:

    he's 18 and I'm sure he'll want to go travelling many more places. I think Dubai is on his list next.

  12. liyafendi Says:

    That's very young. He must be an adventurous guy. Did you support all the expenses, Cat? I'm sure he has used lots of money for the travels!

  13. cat Says:

    No – he paid for it. He worked hard for a year after leaving school and saved his money. He did well with his money – even though the australian dollar doesn't go far in europe and USA.

  14. liyafendi Says:

    Owh really? That's cool, he's just 18 and has been traveling that much with his own money! At least he doesn't give you headache for the expenses, right? 🙂

  15. cat Says:

    he's very independent – it's good
