I am getting ready for a trip (yes ANOTHER travel opportunity) and I am doing a little jig about it. I just read somewhere that some rental car companies in other countries will not rent to someone 70 years of age. So I only have a few years left to get around on my (our) own! Then the only opportunities are more expensive.
Yet, the plans for this trip are in the hands of someone else (my son's in-laws), and I am sure we will be glad with whatever transpires and wherever we stop---hotel, a few bed and breakfasts and then a hotel. I will tell you where when I return and bore you with at least a few photos. (My biggest issue is how much camera gear to take!) I am determined to take only one small suitcase.
To bring me down to earth, I have been juggling doctor's appointments as I have had a chronic cough this summer that will not go away. The next step on the path of health discovery is that I have asked for an MRI since an X-ray ("probably underlying COPD"--whatever in the hell that means) showed nothing of significance. But the cough is annoying everyone around me as well as myself. Thus, I now have to take it on the trip with me and I am sure with the Ebola scare I am going to be taken aside and given a temperature reading and lots of space from passengers while others are being scanned for weapons.
This life is such an adventure, isn't it? Makes you stronger.
I do not mean to leave readers up in the air...maybe I can blog more from there?
Stay safe from fires, floods, volcanoes and loud people until I return.
