I am a Worry Wart

So, my wonderful daughter is going France to take pictures for a book that her business partner is writing.  She's arriving in Marseilles then taking a train to Avignon, France.

So a couple of years ago she went to New Zealand for 3 months, backpacking around with her friend.  She flew out alone and met up with her friend and she had a great time.

And I was totally cool with this trip until her partner said when she gets to the Marseilles to never make eye contact with anyone or talk to anyone because the people there will try to scam you or try to steal stuff from you.

So I'm like, he's just exaggerating.  But then when we're googling finding the train I read all these accounts of people getting mugged at the ATM, pick pocketing, etc.  So now I'm worried.  Sigh

I go between thinking that I'm sure crime happens anywhere and most people are pretty cool and she'll be fine, to imagining the most horrible things.

Her flight leaves out of Dallas Wednesday afternoon so my husband is driving her up there and I'm here at home trying to not stress out over this.

Oh, here's their website if you want to see about the book!!
