Wanderlust is such a wonderful thing. Personally, I wish I was 22 and only responsible for myself again. I think what he is doing is fun. When I was his age, I was in college in Poland (as an exchange student) and decided to hike the mountains throughout southern Poland and northern (then )Czechoslovakia with just a backpack, a bedroll, travel documents (they were communist countries at the time and you needed internal papers to travel) and a very few dollars in my pocket. Stopped off where I wanted, when I wanted. No plans, no maps, nothing. Subsisted on tea, beer, bread, cheese, and apples - all of which were cheap. No phone, no incoming mail, nothing. Most enjoyable time of my life. Never felt unsafe or concerned.

He will be fine. Never been to Australia but several of my students have taken the junior years abroad there and describe it as a magnificent place, and Italy is wonderful to travel in. Both are very safe countries for young travelers. He will be creating memories for a lifetime.

Sending warm wishes for safe travels for David. Sue, as moms we never stop worrying when they go on adventures. Hope he has a wonderful vacation. I am sure you will hear from him often.

Oh jeese, I was so relieved that it was something fun and happy that you are worried about. We worry because we know what mischief we got into at that age.

Please keep us posted on his adventure .
Oh, I love what Bridget says!

Sue, I think all of us worry about David's allergies ... because he is your son and we know how much you love him ... and, we love you.

However, I agree with Bridget ... that your son is obviously a very responsible person. With that, I am sure he will be in touch with you often ... so, hopefully, that will help time go somewhat faster for you ... until he is back home again.

David is so lucky to be visiting Australia. I have a friend who was there on vacation for a month and loved it! And, then after Oprah took her fans on that fabulous trip to Australia and I saw how beautiful it is ... well, I would love to go myself!

Sue, David will be in my thoughts and prayers. I am sure he will do fine though! And, again ... I am sure he will keep in touch with you.

Sue, your son will have an amazing time and my prayer will be for safe travels for him, peace of mind for you. And no, we never stop worrying...

I would hate to live in a world without dogs, glass, or wine...

Sue, as a mother I am right there with you. I myself am such a worrier when my daughter travels. The bottom line is we will never stop worrying.

I am sure he will have a great time and everyhting will be fine. I will tell you not to worry but you will anyway!

I've been to Perth and Melbourne but spent most of my time in Melbourne and it's very easy to find your way around and felt very safe. I did a few day tours on my own, while my friend spent her days doing a course for work. He'll love it, he can go skiing there too.
