|colour correct certainly changed the look of this shot but I rather like the effect so it stays|
Lots of ads and lots of conversations about flying south this time of year. Several of the girls from the gym are heading to the Dominican Republic soon and although I envy them the warm days I am not a go to the beach and sand for 2 weeks kind of traveller. Instead I've been looking at the idea of Ireland in May or a tour of the Maritime provinces here in Canada.
Thinking about it got me thinking about the size of our suitcases. They are small. I can see why we bought them for our trip to England in 2005. We were going to have to heft them on and off buses/underground for our stay in London and get them in and out of a small rental car while we toured around and stayed at Bed and Breakfasts. I barely made due on our trip to France and Newfoundland and last year going west with my sister I lugged a very heavy carry-on so I could take my second pair of walking shoes.
Yesterday I bought a new case, on sale. It's just one size up but looks like it will make a comfortable difference. With the Senior Tour company I plan to use I will just have to wheel the case from the van that picks us up to the weight-in at the airport and put it outside our hotel room each morning for transfer to the bus. Paul decided to stay with his small case. I won't be finding room for any of his things in my new case. *grin*
Now it's just a matter of worrying over my wardrobe.
