SO………… we are back on the road AGAIN! We are taking the summer to travel through Europe on our way to China.  Once in China I will be left behind to study Chinese, live with a Chinese family, as well as teach English.  My aim will be to become as confident as possible in both the language and the culture.

Before we had even left Canada I made a rushed visit to the dentist because of intense pain in the back of my mouth.  It turned out that I had a leaking filling which was causing widespread pain that could only be fixed with a root canal.  The whole procedure took less time than my mom's haircut and color and hurt a lot more!

The first five days of our trip went off without a hitch while staying on Canvey Island, England with the magnificent Mitchell's.  They gave us their local perspectives of England and took us to sights such as the London Eye and Buckingham Palace. 

We ended up on the 7 hour bus that took us from London to Paris, and with three days in France we got a decent feel for the French culture, also discovering a bit of hostility between the immigrants and the French.  But most surprising of all was how well my mom could actually speak French.
