I have been places.
I've lived and worked in London for years.
I've studied in Paris.
I've traveled throughout South America - by canoe in the Amazon, by bus (north American school buses!) in the Andean countries, by train in Peru, by boat in the Pantanal, by plane in Brasil, on foot in oh so many places - and visited all countries in the South American continent except for Uruguay.
I've spent months at a time in the US (always under three, as all Alien citizens), and visited ten states.
I've lived in Rome.
I've traveled extensively in my own country, from the northern Alps to the southernmost tip of the boot and to the islands.
I've traveled fairly widely in Europe.
But the most wonderful journey started seventeen years ago, when Tom and I became father and mother.
Happy birthday to Nicholas, our big boy.
