Last day of work before a trip overseas, I have been waiting 2 years for this after going a least once a year before the Covid. We are hoping to get to Italy and Greece but with restrictions changing by the min I am so scared we will get stuck at some border. We have a stop in Canada and that is going to be a first, let’s see how it go’s.
We have already booked to go back to Rome for a week and then Athens for a week next month and I’m so scared the Covid numbers will start going up and they will not let us in. People please continue wearing your masks. The hotel we are staying at is just around the corner from The Pantheon.
In Athens we are staying in town this time close to the Acropolis.
After the last year and staying in the US or Mexico I am ready to go on an real vacation. We have one planned it’s just the numbers keep going up and we have no Idea if we will get into Italy.
The flights and hotels are booked now lets see how fare we make it. The last trip to Mexico was a surprise visit to some friends that were down there and they didn’t know we were coming. We started taking photos in the same locations they were posing photos,and they jut thought we had been here before. We had to call them and let them know we are in Mexico.
Also I wanted to test the mileage in the Cooper Mini so we headed off to Vegas from Reno. This is about a 8 hour drive ( about 450 miles ) what we did was fill up the tank before leaving town and off we went. Wanted to see if I could make it on one tank, normally we would stop 1/2 way down and fuel up for the rest of the trip. This time we just got a hotel room and spent the night to break up the trip. We stayed at a hotel on Fremont street this time and I think I like that better then the strip, everything is in walking distance. Got to Fremont street 428 miles with 252 miles to go.
I am starting to think pollen seeds are really small aliens that have deposited themselves here just to get all the moisture from our body’s to come out you’re nose. If you don’t have them just wait they will get you someday. Stay safe and remember hide from “pollen” when ever possible.
Its been a long time since I have posted here, its been a odd year for all of us. My year was in no way as bad as most. Since we spoke last I am still unemployed (sorta) I have become a school teacher to my grandson. It’s a lot harder then it sounds, what the fuck is “new math”.
I have been to Mexico 4 more times since my last posting here and had to deal with a over sugared 11 year old and Hurricane Delta the hurricane was easier.
Last time we were in Mexico we took the all the kids and they didn’t spend as much time outside as I thought they would. Getting in and out of Mexico was easy the first 3 times but the 4th time it was starting to get back to normal “dam tourists”.
Its now been months since I posted and I started this post 2 trips ago, not sure why I just didn’t feel like writing.
