Travel Planning

By Claire
I think all the travel planning has paid off. We seem to be prepared for anything and have all the membership cards to prove it. My goal was to do all the work in advance so that once we're there we can just go with the flow.

The accordion file holds all our important papers: itinerary, copies of e-tickets, shopping list for outfitting the camper, all those I.D. and membership cards, and a calendar for the entire year so we'll have some idea of where we're supposed to be and when. I'd hate to wake up in Bulgaria when we're supposed to be in Poland.

We watched Casablanca the other night and this conversation made me think about travel planning:

Captain Renault: What in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?
Rick : My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
Captain Renault : The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.
Rick : I was misinformed.

I love the Casablanca excerpt. I burst out laughing when I read it. Hopefully with all of your planning those sorts of situations will be kept to a minimum...Carol

Thanks Carol. I laughed out loud when I heard it in the movie. I'm sure we'll have some surprises along the way.

I love the updates and will be looking forward to the trip entries. The only better than an accordian is an accordian folder! Looking good…
