Baby Girl left on Friday and although we’ve had a tearful weekend, we’re doing okay. It helps that her CASA worker reached out to me and said he would keep me updated on how she is doing. I’m sure she’s fine and I want her to be doing well, although there is that tiny piece that hopes she misses us so terribly that she’s making everyone’s life miserable and they want to send her back. That’s the selfish part of me.
But this post isn’t going to be all about Baby Girl or even about foster care. This post is going to be about another love of mine . . . . .
We really do enjoy traveling, although foster care is making travel a bit challenging.
Our main travel the last few years has consisted of cruises and travel between Texas and Illinois. The girls and I hit the road a few years ago and went to California, but that’s pretty much it.
Between hubby and I, we’ve seen almost all 50 states. While in the Army, hubby spent two years in Germany, but didn’t take the opportunity to see other parts of Europe. Other than Guatemala, Ethiopia and cruise ports, I’ve never visited many places outside of the U.S. and think I would very much enjoy seeing Europe. I think the girls would enjoy it as well, plus, what a great opportunity for some road schooling.
We currently have a deposit down on a cruise for next year, but are discussing the possibility of canceling the cruise and planning a European vacation.
At one time, we had a European cruise scheduled, but we switched that to a Caribbean cruise because hubby really doesn’t want to waste time on a ship when we could be traveling around Europe.
Tonight, he asked me where in Europe I would like to go and I didn’t have an answer for him. There are so many choices!!!!!
Do we visit Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Iceland, Denmark, Great Britain, Italy, France, Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Spain . . . . the list goes on.
It’s not like we’ll be able to spend a month traveling around Europe, although that would be awesome. Financially, we just can’t do that, so if we can make it happen, we’ll likely only have 2 weeks.
So here is my question to you.
If you had two weeks to travel around Europe, which countries would you visit and why?
