Monday, 28 July 2014. I should probably be writing about great ideas and plans for the future as I embark on 65 years plus, retirement, and beginning medicare. I am waiting here at a hotel preparing to go the airport to fly off to Frankfurt Germany. That has my full attention. Rucksacks and bags are packed but the mind keeps going over the lists. How many trips have we taken and yet I never feel comfortable. Even those years when I was wandering around the world for months on end, there was always that alertness and anxiety getting ready to travel. Once we are checked in and through security, I will begin to relax.
Today, we have a late flight. It will be over six hours after we checkout of the airport. I might as well plug the Quality Inn near the Mall of America where we spent the night. Yesterday, we removed the very last stuff from the apartment and turned in the keys, dropped off our car that we sold to our friend, dropped off the cable equipment. Then took a walk to a nearby store to buy fruit for dinner and relaxed at the hotel. Quality Inn Mall of America
I will drop in a picture of our bags in another post or comment. Now, it is time to check out.
