It’s the 100th Post…and the Mystery Traveler is Revealed

by brian on February 7, 2009

This is the 100th blog post for, and it has been my pleasure relaying the stories from this round the world trip. From the Big Island of Hawaii all the way to Athens, I hope you’ve been educated and entertained as much I have enjoyed doing it.

And so…my mystery traveler is Ayana, devoted and mega loyal reader (I think she deserves a bigger title than loyal reader) who has been dropping pearls of wisdom in emails to me since October.

 Its the 100th Post...and the Mystery Traveler is RevealedAyana, in a slowly disappearing telephone booth. Cell phone anyone?

Three weeks ago she booked the flight and she arrived yesterday at 6AM off the red eye out of JFK. And like a trooper she jumped right in and we walked the River Thames, window shopped at Harrod’s, had a full FREE 3 hour walking tour of London, went to the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square and had a great night with us in the West End Cuban nightclub Floridita’s.

She did and saw more of London in 18 hours than most Londoners do in a month! Impressive Ayana. You know what’s coming next…you’ll hear from her direct…even if I have to open the laptop and put her fingers on the keyboard.

Batman now has his Robin…ummm…Batgirl, at least for the next two weeks…

I don’t know how I didn’t guess this before. Even after hearing it from Mom, it took about 20 minutes for it to register that THIS was the surprise!

Brian, you have yourself a bonafide road dog there. She’s great to travel with and I’m sure you’ll have a blast! She’s been bugging us to do the Amazing Race forever and now she’s on her own Amazing Race adventure.

Ayana, if you survived Amsterdamage with me and the crew (especially your roommate) this trip should be a delicious piece of cake.

Have a ball, yall!
