Morons in Morocco!!!

a trip by Vagabond Voyagers
From: December 16th 2009
Until: January 9th 2010

What would Christmas be without being away from home? This past summer's trip was last minute, but this one puts it to shame - our flights weren't booked until a week before leaving. Funny how things work out ... I figured I'd essentially be unemployed starting December, as current projects were wrapping up and nothing new was on the horizon. So why not hide out somewhere for a while? Of course, as this trip finally materialized, staffing changes and project delays meant that there would indeed be a lot of work coming in house, so perhaps it wasn't the best time to travel, after all.

But this is how it is in the engineering world, where there are no hard deadlines, only delays. The original plan of leaving December 12 never happened, because all signs at work suggested there was work coming. But of course, it never came to fruition, so December 12 could have been possible after all, but because the situation was constantly in flux, it just didn't work out. C'est la vie! Planning for this trip has been a gong show, so we're no more than a couple of morons hoping to see Morocco. Of course, given that most of the planning troubles were my fault, I must be the bigger moron! But also, some would say that traveling with me a third time is a pretty moronic move by Mary ...
