Family affairs

AUTh Lab, Thessaloniki

Well, the image says it all. Unless English isn’t your first language, then the colloquial use of the phrase “out to lunch” might not convey the same dry humour that is carries for me. In any case, that is simply an aside to my real reason for posting. It turns out that my family is becoming quite the roving band of globetrotters. As you all should know by now, I am in Greece, Out but what you may not know is that my youngest brother, Devon, is going to Brazil in about a month. Around that same time, my second youngest brother, Peter, is going to Italy and France. If that weren’t enough, my mom and dad are going on a Caribbean cruise in April.

I think that it is all great because international travel is a real character building experience, especially if you are young. It opens your eyes to potentially new cultures and languages. Granted that the internet is helping “shrink the world” these days, but it isn’t the same as being there. There are early plans for my family to embark on a European tour at some point when I’d be able to join them. Deciding where to go to get the most impact is tricky, and I will let you know if and when something is decided.
