What Are You Most Worried About When You Travel?

Jade was born to backpack. She is a natural at it.

I knew this early on when we took a bus from Prince Edward Island to Ontario. She had just finished grade 1 but boy, could she scope out a free seat and get to it before anyone else; even with luggage in tow.

Nothing could make me prouder.

With these gifts in hand, Jade took to travelling like a mouse to my house.

But… and isn’t there always a but?…

Travelling is Jade’s friend. Food is not. She could do without.

Enter: Europe school trip and pre-determined dinner menus with some flexibility for breakfast and lunch (Jade thanks the food gods for that)

It was a rough start.

Apparently not a Jade fav and this appeared twice;  which was not so nice.

But the Sprite helped 🙂

Sprite was a make up for the less than nice dinner that accidentally arrived twice.  This company, EF Tours, understands teens well!

Then she was hopeful. But…

So she looks to a Canadian (?) restaurant for some food aid, but apparently it was false advertising.

And then she hit the food jackpot… carbs, hot chocolate and ice cream, of course!

And sadly the one that got away due to lack of time. She will eat her dessert first next time. 😦

Jade will never know how this one tasted, sadly, she confesses.
