The Shawn World Tour is coming to Europe (Day 593)

You heard it here first.  Somebody call Europe and warn it that I’m coming.  I have really enjoyed my 9 months in South America (and 11 days in Antarctica!), but I am ready for a change of continent.  I am very excited about Europe.  I already have a few things planned.  I now I have many friends there I want to visit.  I´ve already been to Europe on a few occasions, but never for very long; now I´m going to put some time into this continent.

I know what you are thinking:  "More travel?  This is ridiculous.  This guy’s nuts."  You would be right.  But, I am loving it so I’m going to just keep on rolling.  After 20 months, I am not sure there are many of you still reading.  But, if you are, I invite you to stay with me.  If you thought some of my previous adventures were something, stay tuned, I have some stuff lined up that will knock your socks off.

Internet time in Europe will be more expensive than what I have been used to so far this trip (as will be everything else), so my blog posts may become more infrequent and sporadic.  But, I will keep blogging.  This blog is not only a way to let friends and family know I am alive, but has become the chronicle of my voyage.  I really love looking at this blog to see what I was up to a year ago.  I now write, at least partially, for my 72-year-old self, who I know will read this and smile.

At the end of Part 1 of my travels, through Asia, Australia, and NZ, I had a blast writing a "Part 1 – Summary and Best Of" blog post.  So, I will do the same for Part 2 (South America and Antarctica) whenever I get time.

Lately I have been listening to a lot of Tom Petty.  I don´t know of anybody who has written better travel songs.  I feel like leaving you with a few lines.  Is that a little over-dramatic?  Perhaps, but I will go with it.

Welcome to Part 3 of my world trip.  See you in Europe…

It’s time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, babe, grass is growng
It’s time to move on, it’s time to get going
