Off to Jamaica again in 2 weeks for 14 days. Our 16th time - missed one year due to COVID. But this will be our last, at least for a while. It's a long grueling trip even going first class and we're not getting any younger - other places to go too. Three flights and a bus ride takes about 24 hours, often with an overnight layover one way. Price we pay for living where we do. Was a lot easier when we lived just out of Portland, OR. Be very easy if we lived on the east coast or some other places with direct flights. Can't get much further from JA in the US unless we lived in Alaska. Can't wait to shed the clothes and lay on the beach sucking on a nice cold tropical cocktail with all the friends we have made who vaca there at the same time each year. Been everywhere and done everything there we want to do in the 210 days we have spent there in all, so we rarely leave the resort these days - maybe go down into Ocho Rios for lunch at Miss T's one day with some of our Jamaican friends. Just enjoy the weather, the people, food, drinks and fun and losing the tan lines - well, except the ones under our wedding rings. Going to miss it next year, but probably go to Hawai'i again but a different Island this time. Did Oahu the first time - had to go to Pearl Harbor. Probably go to Key West a few more times too - cool place, lots to see and do... and eat and drink... Thinking about maybe Europe, but it's so expensive over there. Now that my Mom is gone, Corinne would like to to the UK again without being tied to family visits. I had 30 years of the UK, so the only thing that excites me about it is going to Scotland where I have never been. But France and Italy again and the Netherlands where her folk are originally from would be good. I would love to go to India, where my Dad spent some time, but not going near any of those countries or the middle east these days. Australia would be good - he spent some time there too. New Zealand is definitely on our list. Not into cruises, except Alaska we want to do. Otherwise it's just a big floating resort hotel and you just get a quick glimpse of the touristy bit of a few countries for a hour or two. Some people love it, but not our thing. We do a lot of RVing, so we are planning some longer trips around the US too - and we don't have to leave the cats behind. It's tough being retired - so busy, so many decisions to make! So glad we got the yard and garden set - only decisions for that now are what goes in the raised beds each year. Gotta have Scotch Bonnets and Mad Hatter chilies and Callaloo, but no need for any more Carolina Reapers for a few years - the sauce I made is gonna last a loooong time! Giving up on Tomatoes - too much hassle for too little reward here. Much cheaper and easier to go to the farmer's market. Peas have not been spectacularly successful here except for one year - waste of space. Good on carrots and parsnips in the freezer for another year at least. So probably onions, radishes, lettuce, beans, herbs and some other stuff, whatever else Corinne wants to grow.
