Yes, that’s right folks as from tomorrow, this blog will be in hiatus for the next four weeks as hubby and I take off for a summer adventure in South America.
We have been planning on going for nearly two years. Timing, work etc…. was crucial in finally pulling it off. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be going finally. .Yay!!! Our first stop in Santiago, Chile will be staying for the first week with an online friend I have known since 2009. We have both been getting steadily excited over the past few weeks, with her planning a couple of overnight stays in the mountains and in a seaside resort, while I have been dashing around with last-minute buying of bits and pieces. We have never met, yet she is the loveliest dear friend, we have become very close and she is the sister I never had. Although we hadn’t seen each other by webcam for the past couple of years now, she is the one I run to, to talk things over, who laughs at me when I am down. She is the one who I rang and kept company by phone while she waited for her young daughter to come out of surgery. She is also the one who asks me what the correct English word or words while at work because her boss wanted to know. She also taught me how to use Photoshop and other programs. Among the many other fun things we do, she is the one who listens to my rambling story ideas, even though she is not a writer or associated with my writing groups. We are just there for each other, no matter our quirky ways or faults. I am so looking forward to finally meeting her and her family. Hubby and I will later join a tour to Mendoza , traveling through Argentina and Brazil ending up in Rio. We then fly back for one last night in Santiago to spend with my friend again before heading home. That will be hard.
So you see folks I will be a little quiet here. I will be taking my writing pad with me and jotting down ideas for stories I come across and doing some much-needed revision to polish my manuscripts. Although I hope to be able to post one more PPBF all going well, and I have time to set it up. I will however be able to make comments on posts I receive notification by email, and I may be able to pick up Facebook , but otherwise, to my dear followers…….
Adiós y hasta que vuelva. Goodbye and until I return.
Sea feliz Be Happy
All the best and happy Writing..
