And Now for Something Completely Different….

As we walked through Arlanda Airport on the way to our flight to London, we came upon a unique sight right in the middle of the terminal.  A fish pedicure!  You put your feet into a tank of tiny “Piranha-like” fish who munch on your feet and clean them of all the dry skin and calluses. Eeeewwww!  The boys really wanted to try it and, I have to admit, I was curious too.  OMG!  That tickled so much, I could barely stand it.

The little fish did a good job because our feet felt really smooth afterwards!  I don’t think you’d ever find this in the USA. Check it out at

  2. Hi Marianne! The lady said they were related to the piranha. It is so ticklish! We start homeschooling in September when we get to France. We have been doing bits along the way with lots of reading and journal writing. Hoping to settle down a bit in September.

  3. Hi! Another friend of mine is with her family on a boat trip for a year or so…. Just wanted you to know that it is inspiring seeing families who have “unplugged” from the matrix of comfortable, suburban life. I am holding that somehow, someday I will give that to my family too. Keep posting!
