On the Road Again #2


After the anxiety of wondering whether we would receive family approval for our voyage of a lifetime we could hardly believe our luck that this was for real - the heavy backpacks seemed to float on air like our spirits on that beautiful summer’s morning. Our boots were going to take a pounding but our hearts were carefree.
My cute companion, I must admit, would undoubtedly be an asset - putting it crudely, an enticing piece of bait for all those bored drivers between here and our distant destination. Keeping it to myself, I hoped I wouldn’t have to fight them off.
