Seven miles up and down a 4000-foot mountain
Fifteen different types of Bordeaux wine
Three completely new-to-me cities explored
One lost (and then found) suitcase
Four maple creemees
One hundred meters climbed to the top of Europe’s highest sand dune
Two castles – one of them not quite what it was supposed to be
Numerous 14,000-year-old cave paintings (or at least accurate replicas thereof)
One case of swimmer’s ear
Approximately 75 miles biked
Two carousels, one pony, and one Ferris wheel
One million people pushed past for a photograph in front of the Mona Lisa
Uncounted jumps off a large rock into the Mad River
How was your summer?
(School started yesterday and I’m recovering from a stomach bug. I expect to be fully back in action on Monday with a more regular posting schedule, including a guest post about Costa Rica, the remaining story of our trip to France, a return to a weekly travel question on Thursdays, and lots and lots of posts about the upcoming ski season. Have a great weekend!)
