Up, up, and away…

I think the time is drawing near…

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m more than ready for travel. It’s been some time since I last traveled anywhere, and I’m raring to go!

And of course, for those of you who have been reading my posts, it will come as no surprise that my first destination will be Canada!!! Today is 2 years 4 months and 2 days since I last saw my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter, who was then just under 5 months old. So, I really think it is time.

I am trying to plan a trip within the next month, so pleaaaaaaaase hold thumbs for me that I’m able to pull it off. It does, of course, mostly depend on finances, and I’m really hoping that I can manage to do it.

I am trying to hold back the excitement until I have bought the ticket. No use getting all worked up and then I can’t go. But, oh my word, once I’ve got the ticket, there will be no holding back!!!

Is there anything as exciting as the airplane picking up speed down the runway, lifting its nose into the air, and leaving terra firma for the sky? I don’t think so, especially when you are on your way to see loved ones you haven’t seen and hugged for years…

About zelmare

Hallo to you from the southern most part of the African continent - South Africa!! To put my life in a nutshell : I raised 3 absolutely fabulous kids (I'm sure you will hear a lot about them, since I am a very proud mama), I became a doting grandmother two years ago and recently bought a house in the Western Cape, and in doing so, realized a dream I've had for many, many years. I love traveling, which I don't do often enough. I love living a simple life - cooking, gardening, knitting and of course, blogging. There is still a lot I want to do and see in my lifetime, but time will tell how much of that I can actually accomplish. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of lovely new friends and interesting people here on WordPress! :)

  2. I got to travel after a gap of 2 years and it felt strange. It felt strange to be in a crowd and I got fidgety even on a short flight because I’m no longer used to sitting still
