On the way home from Acadia in April, my Mother and I were discussing how she had wished to, at some point, take a trip to Europe. She proceeded to inform me that she had reconsidered her initial cruise thoughts, and thought that we should instead travel without the torturous days at sea. I did a double take at a certain portion of this sentence: mainly the “we.”

It appeared that what I had assumed as a parental getaway was in fact going to be our first real family vacation in seven years. My parents have been to California, on a Caribbean Cruise (Which is a story in itself) and to Las Vegas since 2000, and the Elder and I have been decidedly left out. Sure, we’ve traveled to debating tournaments across the country, but as a family unit we’ve been wholly vacation-less.

But it appears this is going to change: after my parents began to hear of other people vacationing abroad, and after they decided that life is too short for procrastination, I was informed yesterday that I should start researching. And, well, this is clearly my idea of research: blogging about it.

And thus I introduce File #4 here on The Myles Files: The McNutts Do Europe. Over the next year or so (A date has not been set, but May of 2008 is the likely target), I’ll be posting about our plans and, more importantly, asking for some assistance. Because YOU (Yes, you) might be our greatest source of research.

The Myles Files are the organized, but likely still incomprehensible, thoughts and ramblings of Myles McNutt, a fourth year English Honours student at Acadia University.

Highlights will include discussion of Acadia politics, his undergraduate thesis about Battlestar Galactica, and the general comings and going of my quasi-interesting life.
