Hope you have a great time, bro! Looks like you´ll be spending a sufficient amount of time in each city. France, I bet, is going to be beautiful this time of year, especially the coast.
Keep us informed when you can and be safe!

Goodluck and live la vida loca B) !

P.S. CDude just landed in Adam, maybe you guys might cross paths.

Deutscher from 81-85

I'm visiting a friend in Bremen, a Moldovan that is studying there, which is one of the main reasons for going there.

Becks? Verstehen es nicht.

Alive and well in Paris. Problems with bags and flights coming here, but there are plans in place to rectify.

Can't find a friggin access point for the laptop, so no logs until I find one.

Hope all are well.

Awesome photos, bro! How cool is that, that you saw an octopus in the med!

Diving is such an incredible experience. Anyone who hasn't tried it, should! Glad that you're having fun B)

All pictures taken with a Cannon G3 4MP. I think I'll add a "camera information page" to the pictures page since everyone keeps asking

Definitely diving in the med was a serious high point

Cheers,
Rob

Great travelogues! Gave a real good feel of "life on the road," and brought back memories of my hosteling days in Europe.

Well, as the rhyme goes:

"Home again home again jiggity jog."

As of 7:45 central time on Wednesday, Oct 1st, yours truly was back in his home state of Missouri.

The trip was absolutely amazing, and I think it was the best decision of my life to undertake the journey. As it stands, I'm here for 4 months before shipping off to "eastern europe" with the US Peace Corps to do some networking/telecom work to re-establish infrastructure for various aid groups in the region. I'll be there for 27 months, finishing up in May of 2006. That gives me plenty of time to think about where to go afterwards

Best to all,
Robert
