Amy and I are leaving Saturday for Dublin. We will be visiting that fair Irish city for a day or so, meeting up with my sister and her husband, and then taking a packaged tour of Ireland. We’ll rendezvous back in Dublin after about three days and then fly to Barcelona.
We will spend a couple of days in Spain and then take a train up to Montpellier. We’ll spend a few of days traveling the Riviera, and then we head to Tours. This is a city very close to some beautiful renaissance castles, which we’ll be touring. Then it is several days in Paris, including the French version of July 4th, which is on the 14th and called Bastille Day and celebrates the beginning of the French Revolution.
Sometime around the 17th we will return to Strasbourg to finish up our packing for our return flight home.
We fly home on July 21. After a few days of recuperation, we are traveling to Gatlinburg, TN for several days worth of relaxation and family visitation.
Then we will desperately be trying to settle back into Bloomington, which includes finding a new home.
All of this is to say that I am going to be absent from the blog for a good while. I’ll probably have some time post vacation, pre flight home to write about our vacation, but then I’ll be absent again while we visit and settle back into the USA.
So, take care of yourselves, folks. See you soon.
