So many years ago (when I was 14) I became strongly drawn to visit Spain, Latin America and in particular - Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas.
In my middle years, I spent many years studying the Spanish Language and tackling the dreaded 'SER' and 'ESTAR'! - just in case I should 'live the dream' one day.
They say 'patience is a virtue' and it surely must be. Here am I in my golden years, setting off with 'me, myself and I' on a 6 months odyssey to follow my dreams. At this point my feelings are a mix of excitement and angst, having never done anything remotely similar in my life. Countdown: 8 1/2 weeks and still so much to do!!
