I know it’s been too long, and I’m sorry.
I kept putting off a new post because I wanted to wait until all our trips were in order for this year. We still don’t have all four planned entirely, but here is what we are definitely doing so far.
In April, we’ll be flying to Amsterdam to attend the Rolex FEI World Cup (horse jumping) in a small town called S’Hertogenbosch. We will be there for 5 days, so if anyone has suggestions on what to do in/around Amsterdam, please let me know! We are also considering a day trip somewhere, perhaps to Antwerp or Brussels.
In August, we’ll be attending the London Olympics! We have tickets to a soccer game at the stadium that Manchester United plays at (!!!!) and a handball competition , and we’ll be staying at a hotel on Drury Lane (SQUEEE!!)… I can’t wait! We will be there for 5 days.
The following trips have not been booked and are tentative because most countries just DO NOT plan things way in advice. Our British travel agent was the first to point this out, and it has been true in our case. We’ve gotten our hopes up for trips to Barcelona, Madrid, Bali, Maldives, and Fiji this year, but had our plans thwarted by poor event planning. Very frustrating. Anyway, Thailand is almost for sure a “go”, and we are looking into Mauritius now.
The Indian Ocean Triathlon is held in Mauritius this year, so we are hoping to make it out to that either before or after our visit to Thailand. Mauritius looks gorgeous, and we’re already pining for a beach vacation!
