Since this IS our blog, it seems like the right place to talk about this journey. PROCEED WITH CAUTION.....jealous curves ahead (blush)
There is other excitement that I want to mention first. We will fly to Sequim, WA to report back and be officially released from our mission (sniff, sniff) the first weekend in June. Friends of Sequim, please mark your calendar for June 5th (Sunday evening) when we will present a Fireside detailing our amazing 2 year adventure (and counting....) More details later.
After that we will fly to North Carolina to see our two girls and their family, Veronica and Trina. One week of heaven there!
Then, onto Europe (I still can't believe it)
So, here's our route (Yes, it does look like a big question mark - CRAZY!)
And here is what we will see along the way:
Our apartment in Rome, Italy
Down to Sorrento, Italy
The famous Blue Grotto of Capri
Plus a scuba dive along the Amalfi Coast...
And our B&B (which is a converted barn - AND it's over 200 years old)
Back thru Rome and up to Florence, Italy
Cinque Terra, Italy
A fishing trip for Beloved on a real fishing boat - and then some kayaking and snorkeling
Beloved is doing the next part. I'm taking the tram.....
The yellow building is actually our B&B..... (squeal!)
Heading up the Rhine to Koblenz, Germany
So, that's it. In a nutshell. A big, gorgeous nutshell.
Three times we will actually be staying with LDS families - saving $, of course - but more so, meeting people from other lands and making friends. That is really exciting to me too!
We then fly back to Salt Lake City, and then it's time to see the Western kiddos, Mike and Clan and Audra and Clan. We've rented a house in a tiny little town in Idaho - of all places!)
Then - back to Laie, where we will be converting to volunteers and otherwise letting life go on as usual.... for the next year, at least.
Then - who knows? Life sure is an adventure!
Thanks for joining us on the journey!
