Them travelin' shoes, them travelin' shoes

I'm a-gettin' ready to put 'em on.

Only 5 weeks and 4 days until we arrive in France. Not long at all now! At the end of this month, we going to spend a couple of nights on the coast of the Red Sea to break things up even more. Looking forward to it, let me tell you.
This is what my summer days around the mil's house are going to look like:

...spending countless hours soaking in the abundant flora and fauna; making bouquets; hiking on the mountainside; splashing and playing in the lake; exploring old cemeteries, ruins, villages and medieval towns; not to mention wildcrafting and cooking my finds. Oh! And speaking of food, let's not forget all the charcuterie and cheese I'll be indulging in now that I'm no longer pregnant!

Since J will be with us the first month, there will also be days of roaming far and wide, visiting friends and possible places for our future abode. But we'll make sure to make it back to the mil's house in time for the Bastille Day fireworks in Carcassonne:

We may hear fireworks every night in Cairo, but nothing here can beat this awesome display.

I'm positively giddy with anticipation.
