One of Calvin’s fav sayings…

One of Calvin’s fav sayings to me is “arh to have first world problems”.  I hate this saying, and even more so when Calvin says it to me – generally around other people!  My current first world problem is picking another place to visit – not for 2017 but for 2018.


Yes, I plan that far ahead.  But when you see the depth of the research that I go to when we have travel plans – the length of time actually seems about right.  By the time we are leaving, I know the place inside out and back to front.  Since we have decided that 2017 is the year we re-explore New Zealand I don’t have that much research to do and I can give more time to 2018’s trip.

Which is kinda a special one for Calvin and myself, as July 2018 will be our 25th wedding anniversary – the first of the big ones!

Even Calvin said we should go somewhere special or nice – and really that is saying something; as he’s not just agreeing to go wherever I suggest LOL.

I have been thinking about this next trip since the beginning of the year – dreaming about places while exercising my heart out of my chest at the gym.  AND I think that I have finally worked somewhere out, well the region at least …. Europe!  Calvin wants to see Germany and I want to see London and Paris.  So I have, what only 540ish days left to work things out LOL


I am pretty sure that in that time I will be able to work something out.  And I have to say, Europe is a pretty tasty travel carrot to hang in front of me – Europe differently helps push me towards going to the gym each day :D.  Anyway I better get started and working things out to see.  If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment below – I do love to from you all :X
