We were all excited. We were all packed. We were all ready for our grand adventure. But…. the weather did not cooperate.
The plan was on New Year’s Day we would be headed to Greece. That didn’t happen and we learned our first lesson of international travel – patience and flexibility. So while we did not leave Springfield yesterday, we are now on our way.
With help from the airline, the hotel, and our friends in Athens our trip was adjusted and things will turn out just fine. We left the cold and snow of Springfield behind and soon we will be standing on the Acropolis…the Parthenon will be waiting for us.
