You do not always get what you want (delayed trip)

It's usually at this time of year that TWM and I make our annual trip. We had to change our plans this year, after my "surprise" surgery when we returned from Wales in early 2019 and a long convalescence, I did not know how long it would take me to get back on my feet, but there was also the Rugby World Cup (from mid-September to the beginning of November) for TWM, who did not want to miss anything. After a few months we made the decision to delay our trip until early November. We have modified our itinerary a bit, the trip will be slower (which suits me totally, but  less TWM). We will begin our journey in Lisbon, before going to Spain (I still want to improve my Spanish) and Morocco, before making a long stay in Canada from Christmas to the end of February. A lot of fun (and photos) in perspective! Another possibly good side effect is that I may be able to finish my novel before we leave.

One  can not go on the (long) journey that is  life without, on occasion,  going through turbulent times. Everyone reacts in their own way. For some, it’s about sharing their emotions with whoever wants to hear them, or whoever understands them, for others it’s about seizing the opportunity to transform one’s environment or career,  for others, it is time to fall back on oneself. I have noted  that as far as I’m concerned, in those times, I have only one desire: to return to myself (rightly or wrongly).
