IMPORTED FROM OUR TRAVEL BLOG: Brad, Karin (and Ryan) Do Europe ‘06
Normal people would bring a deck of cards. We’re bringing the travel edition of the Settlers of Catan game to whittle away the long hours of travel or contemplative moments between exhilerating adventures. For those unfamiliar, we’ve become slightly addicted to the game of dice-based conquest and managed to hook everyone else we could wrangle into playing as we’ve moved through our social-lives. Now, it’s following us to Europe.
Packing is nearly done: we’ve ordered together all the obvious essentials, a small collection of new clothes, a wad of Euros, and enough digital memory to capture the entirety of a small continent in pristine photographic splendour.
Yet to do: clean the house making sure to discard the perishables from the refridgerator, take Sparkle down to Red Deer, actually place the items into a suitcase, and get to the airport. No prob.
Might even be time for a game of Settlers in the meantime!
