So here is the deal. By the time you are reading this post, I will be on . . .
Headed to London, England, where we (myself, my husband and three youngest daughters) will rent a car and drive to . . .
There we will leave our car behind and get on . . .
Which hopefully is much larger than it appears in this teeny little picture. On the boat we will meet up with my husband's brother from Chicago (the one who took us on the death march:-) his wife and two youngest children, and together the nine of us will sail all around . . .
We are calling this trip our "Return to the Mother Land" as our families come from England, Scandinavia and Germany.
We are stopping in Copenhagen, Denmark on Sunday where we will go to church, then will make two stops in Germany, one in Stockholm, Sweden, Tallin, Estonia, Helsinki, Finland (where we will attend church the following Sunday), and spend two days in St. Petersburg, Russia, and then return to Copenhagen. We are told to expect cool temperatures and lots of rain--both are items we don't see much of here in AZ.
In Copenhagen, we will disembark and get on another plane headed to . . .
Where we will spend three nights before returning to the very hot weather of Arizona. But, truth be told, I am not all that excited about flying to or from Paris since the two latest plane crashes over oceans have either been headed to Paris or leaving from there. And we are flying on Air France!!
Anyway . . . I love to travel, but when I do I get very homesick and miss hearing from people back in the states. So, assuming we will have Internet and I will be able to write the occasional post of our travels, each time someone posts a comment on my blog--beginning with this post and continuing until I return home in a couple weeks--I will enter your name in a drawing for . . .
This very cute metal plaque, AND a souvenir (yet to be determined) from one of the countries we visit.
So, come cyber travel with us, and help keep me from getting homesick by writing me comments along the way!!!
