Glasgow-Delhi-Kathmandu


My son checking in at Glasgow airport this week for a flight to Delhi via London Heathrow, and then overland to Kathmandu.  He's spending the summer volunteering in Nepal.

    1. We've heard a few already via email, although power cuts are getting in the way of communication!

  2. What a world of maternal concern there is in that photo and two short sentences. I wish him a wonderful and fulfilling summer, and a safe return to his mum at the end of it.

    1. You can tell, eh? I'm pleased for him and anxious at the same time. Such is parenthood.

  3. What an amazing opportunity!
    He must be an equally amazing person to give his summer to benefit others.

    1. It wasn't as hard at the airport as I expected. But when we got home and I saw the open jar of Nutella from his breakfast still on the kitchen counter...

    1. I MAY get some photos from him during the summer. I need to grapple with the whole 'drop box' thing.

  9. Great pic. You have to admire the openness to what will surely be a life-altering experience. Back during the Balkan War, mine decided that relief work in Croatia would be interesting.

  11. Oh, your heart must hold a bit of trepidation while also being proud of him. I wish him a very good adventure and may he grow in wisdom and experience while he's there. Sounds like a marvelous opportunity.

    1. Very mixed parental emotions! I'm sure he's bound to grow in many ways as a result of his experiences.

  12. What a great summer is in store for your son.

    I am sure you will miss him, but I'm also possitive that he will have a lot of interesting things to tell you about Nepal when he gets home.

    It seems that as I look back on when my kids were growing up, they went on so many adventures in different countries and now my grandchildren are doing it. As for me, I did get to Mexico once or twice, but just over the border, not to one of the great vacation spots. Add to that a few visits to Canada and that is the extent of my foreign country visits. I will say though that I am glad my kids and grandkids are taking advantage of travel opportunities while they are young.

    1. And who knows what directions in might take him in. There might even be a change of career...

  14. Very cool! How did you resist staging a picture of him dropping his bag underneath that sign? 8-)

    1. Staging was strictly off-limits. I know my place!

  15. That post speaks volumes, Linda. I hope the excitement of his adventures will soon more than offset the poignancy of his absence. (Did you put the Nutella jar away straight away or leave it out for a little bit?)

  16. Your kids must make you so proud, Linda. I hope we get to see some photos from this trip.

  17. You're a little kooky, huh? 8-)

  18. What a brave son and Mom! I know it's a mixed blessing as we watch our children leave. I've done it time after time after time...it does get MUCH easier after a few times! You'll both grow a lot this summer.

  19. He is a wonderful young man and you are amazing parents to support him thru such an opportunity.
