We were in the act of travelling for 20 hours, and that is a lot for anyone, especially for an 86 year old man, barely mobile who was exhausted and pretty worn out and beaten up from the trip. Oh yes, and his daughter with lung cancer, who was also pretty exhausted and worn out from taking care of her 86 year old father for 2 weeks travelling through the Netherlands, Spain and Portugal.
It was a wonderful trip, and Dad and I enjoyed ourselves immensely and enjoyed being together. Over the next few days I will post different days and photos of the trip, trying to show you some of the wonderful worlds we were in.
But for now, I must find where my brothers have hidden my car keys so I can go home. I need to finish Dad's laundry from the trip and most of all I need to go home to my "kids". Everyone keeps saying, do not rush home, we will take care of things for you here. But I will not be able to relax until I have held and smelled and kissed and hugged each of my children. And looked at my yard, and sat in my red chair and laid in my own bed with my own kids. Then I shall be able to rest.
It was a wonderful trip
A truly great time
And now I am glad to be
