Everyone Votes Vespa

Except my mother, predictably, sensibly.

But no one offered the info I needed, like cost of insurance, likely resale income in the U.K., driver's licence validity, probable gas mileage... But it's a moot point. The bit of research I've done makes it clear that I can't afford it.

Which leaves only two options, since I've not looked at the Easyjet website and I'm bloody well not going to.

I've found ferries from Civitavecchia to Barcelona and from Bilbao to England, but can't for the life of me turn up away to get from the Mediterranean around to the Atlantic. Help!

Alternatively, I'll train and hitch, which will likely put me in Paris for Tuesday night. Paris kids, wanna hang out? I've got a sangria craving only Bar Dix can satisfy.

Once I've got it all figured out I'll post again. In the mean time, I'm gonna try to enjoy being where I am. Might even go dancing tonight. If I can remember how.

P.S.The one about the viper will have to wait. I don't know how to tell it yet. The ending makes me uncomfortable.

Let us be the first to give you our congratulations, remote hugs, and a big cheer!!! We ached, reading of your rainy entrance to Rome. Nice that you got to top it with some holy water.

Although it has been almost 2 months since Hurricane Katrina hit, and a month since Hurricane Rita, people are still in desperate need of help. The media has stopped covering the disaster as much, but people need to be aware that there are still people dying everyday, people who don’t have the food, water, medications, or shelter that they need to survive.

We’ve pretty much started an organization to get these people what they need, although we don’t have an official name, we’re doing what we can, but there is only so much you can do with no financial aid, no real outside support. At this precise moment we are not asking for donations, not asking for volunteers. We ask that you stay tuned to my journal, while we finish preparations on a small video trailer, showing the things that have already been done, a teaser for a video that will come out later, and will shock you to no end. And it isn’t over yet. We are more than prepared to be there for those who will be affected by Hurricane Wilma, and hopefully any other natural disaster that will come our way.

We’re not asking anyone to jump to help us without an explanation, and that will come with time. If things go as planned, we will have a link for the trailer tomorrow, and if anybody is interested in helping in any way, shape, or form, please e-mail Morgan at or leave a comment at and as things progress, we will let you know what you can do to help, which most likely will never even involve leaving your home.

If you are not interested, I am terribly sorry for taking up your time. Thank you for taking the time to listen to what I have to say.

happy for you that you finally make it to Roma. I feel that your trips are much richer then any who travel by air. Reading your entries make me want more to plan mine. C’est la vie et bon voyage à Paris!

Arthur, have been following your footsteps for quite sometime now.

You have inspired me. I might do what you are doing one day maybe a different route, a different place and - blog all the way.

Best wishes for your return.

Hi Arthur,
When you're home safe in your house and know there are no vipers there, you'd better tell the tale! Enquiring minds want to know!

Hey Arthur,

Glad you're doing it, only because its something I'd let my friends talk me out of. Maybe you could side shuffle then hop skip and jump to oz... just an idea.
