So much to think about but we’ve been told by those in the know that the more research you do now, the better your trip will be planned & enjoyed. With this in mind we went to a travel evening info night last week and I expected ideas /tips for travel, but of course it was more like “Pick Me!”
Last week Mei & Brodie told us a couple of great tips and Friday night Pat & Puea shared the good, bad and funny parts of their trip. Last night we were kindly invited to Don & Nancy’s who have traveled to Europe 6 or more times and their travel tips were invaluable! We were there with Tony & Duane and Lindy and thoroughly enjoyed the albums & stories, the wine, the Cherry liquer and even a tutorial on learning Croatian…Gee guys you were awesome! Little things some of them, but they are all helpful as we start to narrow down the plan. I know we are going to make lots of mistakes but that’s part of the fun and they often lead onto other opportunities too. As Ren says…”It will all be alright in the end”
So with a heap of travel brochures and books we attempted this morning to narrow down a list of actual places we MUST visit…where to start & finish this great trip? Its amazing that we have this opportunity, not good luck I know. We have many choices to make in life. We could probably redo the kitchen & bathroom for what this will cost, but this feels right, and while I never thought in a million years we would be doing this…here we are planning it!
