No I don't think so.
My travelling days appear to be over!
I used to travel to another country every year but now, after an accident, cannot carry luggage or stand in lines, and cannot handle a 20 hour trip even if it is in business class!
Also do not want to leave my dogs as they have special needs, so if I go anywhere it would be on a cruise or to Sydney where I have family and friends.
Yes. We will be going to Europe on a tour and after that, we will go on one of those river cruises. It should be a wonderful, memorable holiday. My husband has been to Europe before, but this will be my first time.
Perth? I would put my dogs in a kennel but one is blind and the other lived in a kennel for 6 years till I got her though they were perfectly OK when I did it last time! It is ME who frets, not them. I expect to see you in 2018 -and indeed any others??
I have no desire at all to travel overseas.I did go when I was much younger,and I am just not well enough to travel comfortably even for short trips!
Apart from this, I would never be able to leave my beloved dogs .When I was in hospital,it was just so awful for me and for them,though my wonderful neighbour did take great care to visit them several times each day! Bless his heart! No! my travelling days whether domestic or overseas,are over for now.......
Well, not plans exactly, but I'd love a very long cruise for my 70th next year, or a visit to somewhere to see flamingos in the wild. So far I've only been them in a hotel garden in Vegas, & in San Diego Zoo. I'll just have to wait & see what happens. We still haven't been anywhere for my husbands 70th, nearly 2 years ago now, but I'm more worried about mine, than he was about his!
It's now the 3rd week of July, '17, & we're going to the wedding in Bali, in 10 days time, & staying for 14 days. We didn't get to go on the cruise for our birthdays though, but we're booking a short 14 day south pacific cruise from Feb 24, Melbourne return. That way we'll also be able to visit our youngest daughter, & 2 granddaughters from the other daughter, before & after the cruise!
My husband's job calls for him to travel overseas frequently . He asked me to go to India in January, but I can't leave the animals at this time. Maybe I'll be able to accompany him somewhere else later. My sister is showing art in Singapore later in the year so I am definitely going to that. It's a big deal and I want to be there for support.
Annfi, How was the art exhibition in Singapore? I hope it all turned out well, & she sold a lot of the paintings. My father had an exhibition in NYC in 1962, & didn't sell anything! Some art exhibitions aren't for sale of cause.
Annfi, Have you been to your sisters art exhibition in Singapore yet? We forgot to go to any art galleries while in Singapore for 3 days before the wedding in Bali, but we did visit the botanic gardens & saw the wonderful orchid display.
Miro. I made a mistake , when I wrote that I thought the exhibition was iin Singapore but it was in Hong Kong. It finished about a week ago and my sister was very successful! A Sydney gallery wants to represent her, she sold several pieces and has five commissions! Unfortunately, I contracted Shingles so we couldn't go. It was very disappointing. Slow to get over this disease, but nearly better. We had to cheer her on from Australia.
I loved the botanic gardens in Singapore, but didn't get to the gardens by the sea with those big sculptures and light display. Next time maybe.
Oh Annfi, So sorry you missed your sisters exhibition. What a blow. That is so exciting about her Sydney prospects though. At least you'll get to see her Sydney shows. I've heard shingles is just so awful, & very painful. I'm glad your on the mend now though. Have you had to stay in bed all that time, or just stay at home?
I was in bed a lot for first two weeks. Since then I am okay to do some things in morning but no energy by lunchtime. I feel like I have turned a corner and have days I don't need any pain relief. Unfortunately my vision is affected- only temporarily I think, so it makes it hard to create art, read and use iPad- all the things I usually wish I had time for. I am lucky I recognised what was happening and was treated quickly, could have been so much worse. Thank you.
Firstly, Thank you ever so much for understanding about home being the most comfortable place to be when unwell!! This is so true, and not least due to the fact that I have my beloved dogs here when I need to smile at anything! Secondly, my heart goes out to you with the shingles attack! My darling Dad had a very serious bout of this nasty chicken-pox related virus and he had to spend time in hospital with it, due to the nerve endings concerned being in his mouth.He could not, of course, eat at all with the agony which this neuropathic condition affects sufferers with!!! I do hope that you are well on the mend now.
Thirdly, How extremely exciting for your sister to have had such marvellous success with her art in Hong Kong.I am sure that you shall get to visit this fascinating place in the future when you are comfortably well! I worked in a gallery for several years which belonged to a dear friend and her artist husband whose works go all over the world. I wonder if the Sydney gallery which as picked up your sister's works is one of the ones which my friend's works are in? How thrilling for all of you!! And what a super reason for travelling!
