this is the plan in the making...still lots of tweaks and additions to be made...likely going to end up being a 3 week trip once we add in Israel and/or Turkey

I love this.  This is eerily reminiscent of my vacation planning workbook. I will eventually include the cost of each excursion and often times where we will eat (if I learn of a unique place).  When we did the 9 day Greek Isle cruise out of Rome, I had to include ifsums and check fields so Jane could choose various excursions each day and see a total cost for the trip. 

 

The part that makes my wife laugh is my cross referenced "Clothing Need by Day" tab.  But that thing is the key to packing light, especially if I can plan in a laundry day. 

 

I like planning almost as much as going.  

 

Edit: I am probably the only one that is as excited by this as the cat pictures

Wow!   Making the bed must be fun every morning🐱

They are busy in the morning lining up for breakfast so I have a chance.  Changing the sheets is always fun!  My Havapoo insists on his picture.Resized_20190527_144725.thumb.jpeg.9631ef1e3a7b0bf15db3b4f1bee9b2f7.jpeg

Ahh - too cute!    Thank you for sharing.    She looks like a sweetie

 

She is. Before Covid I used to have "visitation rights", she has the silkiest fur ever.

 

They also have an "anti-social" Siamese (only "pedigreed" cats for my neighbors😁). His name is Sushi... Our "relationship" is frosty....

Sadly, we haven't been to Jordan and Egypt. As Israelis, we're not entirely "wanted" in either country...

 

Jordan - we'll be only interested in Petra, which can be done as a daily trip from Eilat. Which, for us, will entail a flight to Eilat, a night at a hotel before and after Petra.

 

To me it seems way too much time in Jordan. Dead Sea can be enjoyed from both sides, depends on hotel and resort prices. I'm sure that the Jordan side is better.

 

Egypt -- I have big remorse that we didn't grip the opportunity when our youngest was in the security detail of the Israeli Embassy in Cairo. We thought we'll have all the time in the world to visit and enjoy his flat in Cairo, but then, unexpectedly, he was offered a post in Brussels. Since he was born in Brussels during our 5-year relocation to this city, he jumped at the opportunity.

 

I think Egypt deserves as long as you can be there. I hope we'll have the opportunity to visit in the future.

 

Re: visiting Israel -- may be you should check the "transfer points" between the countries. It seems to me that Israel-Jordan or vice versa will be easier than Israel-Egypt, for example.

 

Meantime, enjoy planning 🌺

When we visited Israel, I could visit Bethlehem, with a US Passport but since the boss has both Israel/US, she could not. She used her Israel passport to enter  Israel quickly, while I waited in the long line at the airport. 😇

Cat pictures yippee.  Here is a picture of my six.  My English Bulldog wants equal representation.

Awww...six babies!!  Sooo sweet!  Where do YOU sleep?  😉    Katie used to make sure I slept on my left side, or she would "paw" at me.  That was "her" preferred side that was the "cuddle" side she wanted.  I can just imagine the look on my DH's face it he came to bed to find this at night.  😄

So sweet!  Nah...NEVER too many cat pictures.  Seeing these pictures are 100% better than watching all the new Covid cases on TV news!.  Nice to have a heart warming scene.  Love the "lovey kitties"!

What a beautiful day, yard work complete including removal of the shredded canopy and the last 4 bags of leaves raked.  Ready for winter.

 

This was  the first time in 19 years that I have been able to remove the leaf net from the pool and clean and put away the water bags.  Usually the water bags are frozen or semi frozen by the time the last of the leaves are down so we just pull in the leaf net and leave the water bags until spring.  One job off the spring list.

Lol maybe it's because it's just me. I don't plan anything except buying enough to read. I'm sure it annoys my TA I dont keep track of finances or remember exactly how much I owe when. 

 

Since its just me I can spend whatever and no one else cares, except my TA

Just wondering -- she can't just give up her Israeli passport, i.e. not renew it when it expires? I imagine she has to go to the Israeli consulate in Miami for renewal?

Yes, We went to Miami to renew her Israel passport. I think she likes keeping her Israel passport. She was born in Israel and has family there.

This is where they sleep during the day.  At night unless it is cold they hang out in their cat pen outside if they are inside they are in the living room or in the dining room.  The white tractor dogs sleeps in bed at night.  Sometimes one of the grey ones sleeps next to me.

My GodMother had a Siamese when I was a small child.     That cat hated everyone, but her Master.    I would come in the front door and it would hiss and growl immediately.    So if you get only "frosty" then you are doing pretty good.    

yes, Licci has a beautiful coat.   Looks very soft and silky.

I'm with you.  I'm more excited by the spreadsheet.  I use OneNote for all of my planning.  I have a notebook dedicated to cruising with a different tab for each cruise.  Within each tab, I have pages for  various things...Royal communication, excursion research, detailed itinerary, confirmations, etc.  The OneNote file is on the cloud so I can work on it from any computer/phone/tablet and it all stays sync'd.

Sounds a lot like my system.  I usually print it as a pdf so I can refer to it in the Kindle app or Books app.  I like that I can print everything to one note and then organize the entire trip.

My mother had a Siamese when we were in high school.  Probably the reason I have dogs and not cats.  Same as you mom's.  That cat would sit with her and purr away, but everyone else got a swat and hiss.
