Hi, I am enjoying the free life, not working, My choice. After working a few years, it is time to take the most out of life and enjoy the gym, walking, my family and travel etc.. A bit of shopping here and there and some gardening (not too much) and cooking too. Now I am off on another European journey. A trip to see my sis Arlene, Nick, and their sons George, Alex, and Foti way over there in Greece, the place I do love to visit and enjoy the sand, sea, and food (Arlene's cooking) and Banana Beach. Hey "Arlene". Always such good laughs with sis, who, by the way came to see me just last year to attend my daughter Jolene and Aaron's wedding. We had so much fun. On July 6/07 I leave on this new big journey for a full 69 days, with a solo trip for a week to Italy--Rome, Florence, and Venice, and then flying to Athens with a proposed 2 week holiday to island of Kefalonia and Ithaki on the West coast. Then will return back to Pallini, Athens to rest just a bit then When Myrna arrives possibly off again to Islands, Patmos, Kos and Rhodes with hopefully a day tour of shopping to Turkey. I did decide to take a big suitcase for those wonderful market shopping trips. We will leave some time to tour downtown Athens as well, eating and drinking nice wine along the sea shore and visiting the ruins. Then on Aug 30 onto Scotland with Sis Arlene, Sister-in-law Myrna, and we will meet brother Randy in London. With all 4 of us off to Edinburgh, Scotland for 10 days. We will also meet Myrna's family from Cape Breton, who will be performaing 5 performances in the Scottish Festival. On Sept 9 the 4 of us again will be off to London to see the London sites Wow, I am tired already. I trust I will have time to add pictures to this site that I will take of all the sites and fun. If not, I will at least write a note or two here and there, if I have difficulty adding the pictures, as we will see. I am off on my travels the evening of July 6th, arriving in Rome July 7th evening after a stop at Heathrow, London, and Munich, Germany!!!!!!!! Vickie, make sure you send me a message or two, and all you gym folks--do not work too hard as I will have to catch up to you in the Fall. The walking may not do it all. Randy start preparing for your holiday. Orest do not work too many hours--think of those retirement days ahead and future travel plans, Duane, I want to see that finshed house you are building on my return. Paulette enjoy the BC island. Jolene and Tasha, enjoy those new red vehicles, and Aaron, not too much Calgary Stampeding.Enjoy.
