Yeah! Another Trip!

Life is about to get a lot more fun.

I've decided to take another week off for health purposes (I mentally and physically ache when I don't get enough time off) and for exploratory purposes (I have some travel ambitions waiting).

I'm going on a quick 1 week jaunt to Greece, Turkey and Croatia. It will be a whirlwind tour but I see it as reconnaissance for future longer term travel. Plus I'm aching to see new beautiful places even if it is in the off season.

Not sure just how much language I'm going to able to learn. Maybe a few phrases. I leave in a month. France in a 1 1/2 weeks. It's going to be great.

I'm reminded that no matter how I push myself, I cannot seem to be able to completely cheat myself out of time off even though my left brain believes it would be best I stay put and wait til next year. With this I've made up 2 of the 3 weeks I didn't take in the summer.


  1. Wow France and Greece lucky girl! Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do! Enjoy...

  2. Thanks Sue! What got me going as well was a super duper deal on the trip -- $1780 for flight, food and land portions. And that is with paying the single supplement. Fantastic for Europe.

  3. Where are you going in Greece midway? I did 3 weeks and felt it was a little long - 2 would have been perfect. But one not enough. I hear you on the reconnaissance though - I've taken quite a few trips just to check out where I'd like to spend more time in the future. If you ever want to go back and don't want to go single supplement, shoot me an email!

  4. Hi Jacq;

    I'll be visiting Santorini and Corfu! My goal is to not fall off the donkey on the way up into Fira... :)

    I'm really hoping I'll fall in love with those spots and will want to go back.

    Thanks for the travel offer!
