I am back once again to share a story or two!
by Irwin Lengel
Hopefully many of you that read my blog will have missed reading it as much as I have missed writing it. However, since this is a specific time of year where we all count our blessings, I will keep this blog post short but will try to be more frequent with my posts as I have a lot to say after returning from such a wonderful trip.
Well we are back and first off let me say that the 50 day trip was fantastic. Some interesting times as well as finding ourselves in unusual situations we never in our wildest dreams thought we would find ourselves in but the cool part of this adventure was that we made it through and our friendship with the other couple that shared the adventure is still intact. Why do I interject this little piece of information? Because we met a couple on the voyage over from New York to Southampton, England, that upon learning of our quest (the four of us were crossing the Atlantic via the Queen Mary II, renting a car in London, touring England for a week, going to Paris via the Chunnel where we would spend a few days before touring nine other countries via car ending up in Barcelona, Spain where we were to board another transatlantic cruise home to Miami, FL where we were to board a plane back to Tampa and subsequently Lakeland, FL), said she would love to be at the other end of this fantastic voyage to see if the four of us were still talking.
Fact-of-the-matter is that not only are we still talking but still laugh when we get together to reminisce about some of the wild and crazy things we did during this adventure.
Future articles will not only provide you with stories about this memorable trip but I hope to interject little tidbits of information regarding 2012 now that it is coming to an end as well as what objectives and goals I am considering implementing for 2013. Last year I actually made a list of New Year’s resolutions but find that I did not complete many of them. Instead, this year I am going to think first what I am hoping to accomplish in 2013 and then, instead of listing New Year’s resolutions, I am going to create a plan on how I intend to reach those goals.
So stay tuned.
