Away for a couple of weeks


Well, I'm off. Finally. After at least a couple of months of stifling heat, strangling deadlines and ever mounting wanderlust.
I've been dreaming about this Baltic trip for ages. The mere idea of wearing shoes again has me wild. I took out my favourite light cotton jacket, and almost cried with joy.
I see myself as a cross between Anouk Aimee in A man and a woman, and Pippi Longstocking. Those endless sandy beaches, a lighthouse at the end, and a picnic basket.
I'm already very excited about trying the Piparkukas and Speka Rausi  Tatiana recommended.

The one thing I'll miss is this blog. It's been such a source of fun, and of new friends, I don't want to do without it. And I thought I might try to blog on the trip. But frankly, I think for the sake of my mental health it's best that I stay away from computers for a couple of weeks, and forget about work.
I plan to tune everything out.
Two weeks will be a long time away from the blog, but I hope you won't forget me altogether. I'll be back soon, with tall tales of bacon buns and pepper cookies.
Take care.

good for you! I just got back from France and Italy, and I firmly believe its good for the soul to get away from it all -- even for just a few days. Enjoy yourself!

Hi everyone
Thanks so much, I confess I sneaked a peek at the comments midway through the trip. I didn´t have time to answer, but it made me so happy.
