But as all ways some things go slower we lost the configs of last year due to crash bangs and wolips 🙂 .

Went to the Destinations show in London and walked around dreaming about travel. Picked up far too many brochures; no way we’ll do everything we picked up but it’s fun to dream.

So plans for the moment include a long weekend in Florence (Kathleen thrilled and Joe bored), Caribbean for a conference (Kathleen working, Joe playing), possibly Copenhagen, and the chance for a cruise around northern Norway.  And someday off to Antarctica so Joe can photograph penguins.
