Our taxi arrives right on time at 9:00 am and we are soon on our way to the airport. I snap one last picture from the cab window of an interesting looking building that is dripping with green foliage off every balcony. I wonder if it is an office building, and who takes care of all this greenery.
We arrive at the airport in lots of time to relax a bit before we get on the plane, which I really appreciate. I always like it when we are through security, and settled with a cup of tea. It is only then that I can relax and feel that we are truly on our way to wherever we are going.
Our good friends meet us at the Edmonton airport with our winter coats. Yes, we are certainly home. There is snow on the ground and it is a bit colder than Barcelona! We were up early this morning and by the time we finally climb into our bed at home we have been up for well over 26 hours. It is always hard to believe that we can travel halfway across the world so quickly.
Thank you to everyone who has been following along on our travels, especially those who have waited so patiently for these last few posts. I truly appreciated all the comments and ‘likes’. It helps to feel connected to everyone when we are away. I started blogging to keep in touch with family and friends and as a way to journal for myself. I was surprised and delighted to discover that people in thirty-five countries were interested in reading about our travels! I also discovered many interesting blogs when I replied to comments and likes. Blogging is certainly a phenomenon, and one I believe is here to stay.
So, I am often asked where we are travelling to next. Right now, we have no travel plans for the rest of the year other than some short trips to visit family in Jasper, Revelstoke and Portland. It is time for some gardening, a few home renovations and making art. I will keep blogging, perhaps a post every week or two. Stop by for some gardening and art photos.
