Insert something catchy here in French

Ok, so my first posting on the blog site after much prompting, encouragement and abuse from Jay.

So we have all now safely arrived in England with the exceptions of Jenna and Amanda who we look forward to picking up in Spain. After an inauspicious start to our journey, Mike and I had some miscommunication and ended up heading to the wrong airport. Needless to say we will not be the navigators on this journey as we just made our flight. We are now comfortably ensconced in some very plush accommodations in London thanks to our Friend Billy Pick. A pretty cushy start to this adventure.

Tomorrow we leave England and start our journey by ferry to France. The real fun begins then as we will be depending on our trusty bus Thomas to see us safely over the next 4500 or so miles to Banjul. I wanted to say a quick hello to our friends at the Potomac School in McLean, the Pine Crest School in Silver Spring and our friends at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, DC. You all contributed significantly to the success of this trip by providing wonderful bracelets, necklaces and pieces of art that will be given away to and inspire people we meet along the way. So to you and to everyone who has supported and encouraged us in this crazy adventure, thank you.

We are off to France this afternnon and the first leg nof our journey thru Europe. Au Voir

Hope this is catchy enough (although I take no responsibility for the spelling) - Jenna's sister Lynn checking in on the team.

Godspeed and happy trails to you
