I'm in bed again, but this time with a heated mattress pad that my wonderful parents surprised me with. Starting to feel pretty nervous about my trip. I've read countless 'solo female traveller' articles and mainly I think I just need to be aware and smart... a lot of women do it and I know I will meet friends.

This whole blog thing is still feeling new, of course. I need to remind myself to not use it as a super personal journal... you guys do not want to read my personal journal.

Just thought I'd share my fears of late. I worry that they'll only increase - until I'm on European soil and making friends.

As of right now this is not much of a 'journey blog' ... more like an 'I am sitting in my bed, in cold Canada, with a space heater directed right at my face blog'. I haven't left home - not for another month and a half. Judging by what people tell me I should probably drag my space heater along because some of my destinations, like Ireland and Switzerland, will be just as cold and wet as home is right now.

This first entry is just to see how the words look on this backdrop... and to make real the fact that I just bought my one way ticket to London - the long dreamt of wander will commence then, and here is where you can follow.


ps , Ma - now you have something to look at on my empty blogspot. Sorry for getting your hopes up earlier.
