A year ago my daughter and her husband went on their dream vacation to the beautiful and historic Greece. The country prides itself in the wanders of joy, and rich history. Travelers are never disappointed.
To get there, they journeyed by cruise, plane, taxis and foot. Every moment of planning the trip was filled with beautiful excitement, longing, and delightful dreams of what was to come. And when the day finally came, it didn’t disappoint. They had a wonderful time! 10 days exploring the mountains, valleys, monuments, eateries, and more.
Then the day came for their departure. Filled with pics, souvenir, and memories to Recite to last a lifetime. Suddenly…without notice, as if in a Trance…things changed.
Unrest erupted in Turkey. Airports closed. Luggage on flights that were terminated. No way out from Athens. Flights cancelled, they had to seek alternate accommodation at nearby hotels. Yet no sleep. Fears rose as they thought of their kids. Oh to feel their tiny hugs.
Two days later with commute from Athens, they ended up in Paris. No seats on flights to the United States, they had no choice but to separate…to Journey home on separate flights, over long distances through different countries. It was their only option. A few other stops, and days later they arrived home. Apart but together. Safe.
What a trip!
