The Journal of Indiana Sam - June 25

I find that I am having strange dreams

But they may not be dreams for much longer

Rachel tells me the news

I was so surprised, I actually argued with her for a moment.

But she forgave me for that moment.

For a couple of adventurous souls, we've turned into complete home bodies for the moment

We can hardly believe it

It's that dream again

I can hardly believe my luck, just looking at her

Nothing ruffles her feathers

Then it's finally time

She wasn't impressed by my small panic attack

but she's in pain and I'm about to be a daddy.

Rachel and our new darling daughter Laura

It's a race to save the baby and

I win

Rachel took a short break in France but she says it was all about food and nectar. No treasure at all, drat it.

The Journal of Indiana Sam - June 15

Finally home again. After a strenuous trip, it's always good to relax.

I claimed a reward for that massage

And got slightly carried away

It was definitely love

Rachel seems pretty happy with the idea

And so we prepare for a new sort of adventure

Rachel said yes so we will soon be married

About to marry the most gorgeous woman in the world

Definitely the best part

I was a bit breathless after that

The Journal of Indiana Sam - June 10

Rachel and I have decided to travel to France and get better acquainted

Well, that was the plan but the call of adventure was too much. I agreed to retrieve a special item for one of the locals. So it's back into caves for me.

This wall is suspicious

Thought so

Let's see if I step here

And inspect this hole

I have got to spend *way* more time in the gym

Stupid pile of rocks.

Ah, now that is better

Finally, major treasure

I was going to ask Rachel what her holiday had been like but

When she finished the nap, we went home

On the way home, I found out that Rachel was exhausted because she had been exploring the Museum. As it turns out, there was some hidden areas and she found the remains of a curator who had accidentally trapped himself. We've moved in together and I'll have more chances to get to know her.

The Journal of Indiana Sam - June 8

8 June

Now that I'm back, I need to work on my people skills. 

This is Rachel, she's also interested in archaeology

Next thing you know, I feel such an attraction for Rachel

I think she might just like me to

The Journal of Indiana Sam - June

1st June 10

The approval from the museum has finally come through.  I've been helping them identify artifiacts for years now.  They have agreed it's time for me to go relic hunting myself, instead of waiting for specimens to arrive then determine they are worthless.  This first trip is just to get familar with Simla, learn a bit of culture and study the martial arts. 

2nd June

Bags are packed and I'm off

There's a well established base for travelers in this city, plenty of beds and a good kitchen.  I'm sure I'll be spending a lot of time resting up here during each expedition.

The main transportation is either by foot or bicycle

 The martial arts academy doesn't hold organized classes.  Just visit when you need to train

The lowest level of martial arts is the white belt

Sparring with a partner is a much faster way to progress

4th June

Ouch, no one told me these things fight back.

My yellow belt in martial arts

5th June
Time to return but I've managed to gain an orange belt and made some good contacts in the city. 

Authors note: World Adventures has caused the regular Sammy feature to be replaced by Indiana Sam.  It's hoped that the readers will still approve.
