I have been remiss in posting lately and in the time gone have received some notes offering to update for me and some why you no post!!! *Long dumb reasons for lack of post at the end – I hate to start a post with a rant.
I have been away and instead of posting while vacationing (was trying to break the internets addiction on relax time), I am posting after the fact. Nearly two weeks after, though not long enough that my flight miles have credited to my account yet and not long enough that I can request the missing miles – BOOOOO United, when you were Continental I did not have to deal with this BS and I am meticulously tracking my travel and flex EQM miles to ensure I keep my gold status.
So we scrapped China (moving it to November) for a shorty trip – 7 days in Vienna, where I have been wanting to go to for ever, but always skipped because I was kinda stupid and could not find a rental flat in the ring and because out side the ring is often referred to as the “suburbs” thought that was not in the city. the Ring is only like a mile wide, so, uh, doh! on my stupidity. It took watching an episode of House Hunters International (TM) to um, get it. That and doing some travel reading. **Fully aware how dumb I sound.
It was our last day in barcelona and it all went astray. The husband finally got a full blown stomach flu and was down for the count. Or rather puking his guts out.
I went out to get to do some last minute stuff in the afternoon. Namely check out the kitty garden and grab some lunch. The kitties, it turns out, were not accessible and I could only stare at them longingly throughout the fence. So I went to read a mag and then walk around.
