that's an exclamation point and question mark, dadpad. not 'bazoonkas'. besides, you're staring up the neighbor's mother. obviously you'll be needing a new pair of glasses first.

OK, this is hard! Here's what I'm thinking now:

It's getting a bit too close for comfort to Walter's departure date in terms of sending Penny to Germany. But his American A2K tour is such a great opportunity. So how about if I send Penny to someone in Chicago -- JPB, joefromchicago, Wandel, whomever wants to be the recipient -- and that person hands off Penny to Walter. Walter takes her on the grand tour (Chicago, Boston, New York), and then takes her back to Germany. From Germany, Penny goes to... (undetermined as of yet).

I hate to miss Dag's travels but a) Dag's so going to be traveling again (you are too!) and she'll have dibs the next time, and b) it looks like ehBeth may be duplicating some of that swath when she travels (with Penny) next October.

Sound OK everyone? Depends somewhat on whether a Chicagoan is willing to host Penny. I'll PM JPB.

JPB said yes! <mwah>

OK, we've got a plan. Whew.

I'll send off Penny in the next couple of days.

If Penny would like to stop by in Munich while she's in Germany, she'll have a place to stay.

I'll be in San Juan, Puerto Rico July 5-12. If you want Penny to see the Caribbean, this is your chance.

You're an absolute charm factory, daggles.

I'm sorry you won't be getting Penny right now BUT you do have dibs for your next trip. You go on a trip, someone else is going on a trip at the same time, you get Penny, and that's final.

Eva, that would be so great!

Looks like it's shaping up to be:

JPB in Chicago (late May)
Walter in Chicago... then Boston... then New York... then Germany (End of May --> mid-June)
Thomas in Germany (June-ish)
(maybe room for a bit more German-type adventures, not much though)
Eva in San Juan, PR (July)
[other people]
Canadian tour ending with
ehBeth who goes to Europe (October)
maybe someone else here
FreeDuck (Atlanta and Morocco) (December)

Cooooool...

Maybe Atlanta to Raleigh would work then? That would put Penny here for Pancakes with Santa or perhaps bringing in the New Year at one of my extravaganza's.

Oy, looks like Penny is very busy. So instead of me taking Penny to Europe, perhaps a trip to southern California is in order, somewhere down the road.

All right then.

Cambodia is still an offer to fill in whenever there's a few weeks. From there it's only a stone's throw to Australia.... just think of the possibilities!

I'm still baffled by the Valer connection. I knew Valer and nimh independently, they didn't know each other at all. One from Slovakia, other....well the other you know. They applied for the same job! In Budapest. nimh got it :wink: , but Valer's wife Katy worked at the same office, so now they do know each other....can the world get any smaller?

On a total aside, I just came across a photo on Flickr.. it was made by NYCArthur, who seems to roam the streets of NYC non-stop to snap cute, interesting people. This time, he'd photographed three visiting, cute, Icelandic girls.

One of the girls turned out to know someone on Flickr - one of the best-known Flickrites, Rebekka Somethinginicelandic. Rebekka then turns up in the thread to explain that this girl is her brother's ex-wife's sister (got that?). And that the girls were actually in NY as part of a group of young Icelandic musicians accompanying Björk on tour.

Today's world, eh?
