I have a really good reason for bad blogging: I spent two weeks in May traveling abroad. For the first week, I was in the United Arab Emirates visiting a friend in Abu Dhabi and then traveling to Dubai. During the next week, I traveled to the Piemonte region of northwestern Italy to visit another friend.
Initially, I was going to attend PR Weekend in NYC in May. Rachelle (knitmachinequeen) and I were talking about driving in together. At the time, I had to back out of the plan because I anticipated having to retain an attorney to help with a situation concerning a family member. When the opportunity to visit two of my friends abroad came about, I decided to take it. While the situation concerning my family member is still very much unsettled, I have reached the point where there is not much more I can do. But that's another story for different day...
I left on Sunday, 13 May and returned Monday, 28 May. I flew into Abu Dhabi, UAE via Amsterdam first. One week later, I flew from Abu Dhabi to Milan, Italy and took a couple of trains to Cuneo. I had a fantastic time and will share details and pictures in my next post. For now, I am trying to get my sleep pattern back on schedule. Being wide awake at 3a is no joke!
