Yaya booked her flight ticket to Europe. She chose the countries she is planning to visit, how she is going to get there and where she would be staying. She has been reading about all the backpacker accommodations, reviews etc and have been booking her accommodation.
She plans to spend two weeks in London and take the train to Paris and spend a couple of days there. Then she is flying to Rome from London, travel to Florence, Milan and Venice. From Venice, she is heading to Barcelona and spend the rest of her holidays (and make occasional trips to south of France) there and then fly to US.
Except in Barcelona, she will be alone during her travels.
She is not known for keeping in touch..so I don’t really expect her to let me know where she is or how the trip is getting on.
On one hand I am terrified .. of the all the things that can go wrong.
On the other hand, I know I raised her well and she can handle herself well..
Hardest part of being a parent is this fine art of balancing the art of letting go.
