Well that part's easy!! Just start again. Today would be good. I'm crazy about Zumba (dance fitness) been doing that 5x/wk for 5 years now. Body Pump is good too (weights). Both are extremely fun classes with high energy. I guarantee you would not be sorry.

I don't do very well on a bike for long periods. My crotch starts to hurt no matter how cushiony and quality the seats are. I say this from experience. I like the thought of it though. I know someone doing the Camino right now. I'm curious to hear his feelings about it. Life changing I'm sure.

I notice a rather large Paris group on this board. But then again who doesn't like Paris. Actually I know a couple of women who don't and they are avid travelers.

I would go back to Paris... at a much slower pace this time. So Paris and what else? Considering pairing it with Venice, Rome, Vienna, Prague, Istanbul, Krakow or Edinburgh. Any thoughts? I can also join a tour and go to hill towns in France or Italy. Switzerland? You have great ideas.

The sun was good today.

Hi

I'm not a shrink but the following is my take. Someone with the blues has a tendency to become introverted (which is a polite way of saying you just want to shut the door and forget about the world for awhile). I don't think that's a solution. What I will chime in and suggest is that you don't travel alone. Go with some gal pals or if this isn't possible there are plenty of women only tours you can do. The idea is not to focus too much on yourself.

And it's important that when you return home you maintain plenty of contact with family and friends. Try a new skill - how about dancing? Lessons are inexpensive. It's a great way to keep fit, exercise the mind and meet new people.

Over time our bodies get a little worn and things don't work as well (there are people half your age who are legally blind). Try to focus more on the beauty within. Something we all ignored in our youthful gaiety, to our detriment in later years!

Happy travels

Paris and Istanbul was a combination I found delightful.
