Florida Same Only Different

19 Nov

After two days of intense travel that turned out to be even more difficult than I imagined, we are finally in Florida, USA. If you look on a globe, you’ll see that Bacalar and the Florida Keys are the same latitude more or less. I’m looking at the same swaying coconut palms from our Key Largo balcony.


There were some sweet moments over the last two travel days, like visiting with this child on the bus who was intensely studying my art journal. I love kids and am so happy that I have enough Spanish language skill to be able to talk to them.

She intently studied every sketch, turning the pages slowly.

Adiós Mexico

Also the delightful couple who are minding our dogs while we are gone. Ben from Ireland and Katrin from Austria.

We will be enjoying my siblings and assorted nieces and nephews and a grand holiday meal. I’m sure all the crazy travel expenses and headaches will fade into the distance. Not!

    The fun of the reunion will make all the hassle and expense worthwhile, I’m sure!

    Yes, the discomfort in misery of travel to fade pretty soon. That’s why we continue to travel.
    I’m taking more breaks when I travel. I think I’d have had to spend several nights off the bus! But at least bus travel to Mexico is good and efficient and affordable.

      We learn lessons every time we travel. And make different choices. Sometimes
