Next week, I’m taking off for my European vacation. I’m going to London first for a day of shopping, then out to Cardiff to the Doctor Who Experience. After that, I’m heading to Munich to spend time with a friend from college, her husband, and their new baby.
I’ve been looking forward to this trip for a LONG time. It’s been my light at the end of the tunnel all summer long, when the editing got to be too much or working two jobs wore me out. Now that it’s finally-almost here, I’m beyond excited.
I’ll of course be tweeting pictures and statuses from my trip, which meant I needed a hashtag to sum it up. Last year when I visited England and saw several Jane Austen sites, I tagged the posts #Darcyhunt. I wanted something equally catchy, possibly with a Doctor Who reference, but not just Doctor Who because that’s only one day. Kim came up with the perfect solution: #AllonsyNancy! “Allons-y!” was the Tenth Doctor’s catch phrase, and it’s French for “Let’s go!” which is exactly what I’m saying right now. As an added bonus, I love the way it sounds.
I’ve got a stack of Jane Austen books I’ll be dropping off at every port of call for the Secret Jane project. If you don’t know what this is, follow that link over to Indie Jane! We’re dropping copies of Jane Austen books out in the wild with an insert that invites the person who finds it to come over to Indie Jane. Think Where’s George, but with books instead. Here’s the complete rundown: Secret Jane Unveiled. I can’t wait to drop books off around the world! Follow this project with the hashtag #secretjane.

If you could go anywhere and see anything, where would you go?
