Savannah, Our oldest daughter, left Saturday for Istanbul, Turkey.

She is in her 4th year at UMD, as an art history major.  This is a very short, 6 week internship, she needs (I say, needs.  She says needs.  but don't ask.  I have no idea.  I just pay the bill) to complete her undergraduate degree.  Working in an art gallery.

She left, emailed from a layover in Boston, was flying to Amsterdam, and then on Turkey.

Haven't heard from her yet.  Karen is a nervous wreck.  I'm sure she'll be fine, but I'm starting to get a little edgy.  She's not with any group.  She's basically on her own for  this whole deal.  She has traveled abroad before, but you always get worried.

I know she'll be fine. 

Thanks.

It'll all be good, Stroh. She'll wonder why you were worried.  Roll Eyes

I have a daughter that is an art history major. Its how they roll.

Try not to worry, I am sure she will be fine.
While you and Karen are nervous wreck's, she will be having the time of her life! Grin

As long as she doesn't try to smuggle hash or anything I think she'll be fine.

I hope she has a wonderful trip, learns a lot, and comes home all the better for it.

But, worries aside, Turkey was a great choice.  It's shaping up to be quite an influential country in the coming decades, and I'm sure your daughter will be able to put her internship experience to good use later on.

Stroh, I know how you feel. I have a 24 yr old daughter that has had the privilege of going Europe while in hs, Hong Kong and Mainland China in hs and has been living in NYC since 2001.  The responses we have received from her was along the lines of "I had no idea that you were that worried about me.  If I had known, I would have called you right away."  My verbal response has always been along the lines of - "Glad you're having fun."  While my gut was doing knotting up in big and small knots.

She is going to be fine and her phone call or email will provide relief for you.  Then the cycle starts again because she hasn't been in touch with you in at least 24 hours.  Who said parenting was fun?
