Vacation Stop

That's what it's called when you put a hold on your mail and newspaper.  We have done that.  Now I am putting a hold on blog posting.

Our bags are packed.  The weight has been checked.

They are both under 40 pounds.  We're good!

The taxi has been ordered.  The cat has been provided for.  The refrigerator is mostly empty.  The yard is on hold, too.  

Yesterday evening we sat down to watch a little TV and relax, and found Rick Steves, in Athens!
We will be there soon! I have been studying his guide books. Yesterday we downloaded his app to our iPhones for some tours of Venice and Rome. We are signed up for excursions for most stops on the two week cruise of the Eastern Mediterranean. 

I am not taking a lap top, just our smart phones.  I will not even try to blog during our travels.  I hope to post to Facebook and I've learned how to send group emails on my phone to stay in touch with family.  

If you see me on Facebook, great!  Otherwise, I'll see you all later.
