Making plans…

26 01 2015

I’m off to the US in a month or so, and I realised that my calendar was getting chock-a-block full of activities — I think I’ll need a holiday by the time I get home šŸ˜‰

  • Day 1: Drive to Perth (2 hours), fly to Sydney (5 hours), overnight at Sydney airport
  • Day 2: Fly to Dallas Forth Worth (16 hours), go to a concert that night, overnight at DFW airport
  • Day 3: Fly to San Antonio, stay overnight with friends
  • Day 4: Friends take me to Texas Hill Country where I’ll check in for my quilting workshop
  • Days 5 to 9: Five-day quilting workshop, show and tell etc. in the evenings
  • Day 10: Friend shows me Texas Hill Country, then backĀ to San Antonio airportĀ to fly to Miami and meetĀ up with another friend
  • Day 11: Friend and IĀ board our cruise ship
  • Day 12: At sea, relaxing
  • Day 13: Cozumel, Mexico – spend day at a beach resort
  • Day 14: Trujillo, Honduras – spend day on a walking tour Ā of a nature park (shore excursion)
  • Day 15: Belize – spend day at Mayan ruins 2 hours from Belize City (shore excursion)
  • Day 16: At sea, relaxing (do a cooking class on board that day)
  • Day 17: Key West, Florida – likely bike riding, stand-up paddle boarding or kayaking, visit Hemingway’s house, have Key Lime Pie!

I’ll try to blog while I’m away (I usually do), but internet access on the cruise will be limited or non-existent. However, I’ll have my camera and laptop with me, so will process photos and write offline, then when I get back to somewhere that has internet access, I’ll publish.

If you’re only been following my blog a short while, you can see what I’ve written about previous 5-day workshops I’ve done by searching the blog for ‘Asilomar’ and ‘Quilting Adventures’.
