6 Days to go
In order to prepare for a trip to Greece there are many things that I have been doing.
First, I had to apply for a Passport. A passport is identification that you need when you travel to a foreign country. It has a picture of me and then everytime I go somewhere I have to get it stamped. Steve and I went to Walgreens to get our photo done at the end of July. Then we went to the post office and filled out forms and mailed them off. In a few weeks we received our passports.
The next big thing that we had to do to prepare to go was to think about our animals and our house. We have a cat and a dog. We didn't want to put them into a kennel for such a long time and so we looked for someone who could live in our house for the month. We were lucky and found someone who can stay here for the whole month and house sit.
Today I called the newspapers and put a hold on newspaper delivery for the month that we will be gone.
I am sure there will be lots of other things that come up and I will try to write about them. Right now I am putting up a picture of Alexi (the dog) and Chester (the cat). They tolerate each other, but this picture shows a rare time when they were sitting on the same pillow!
Thanks for your note. When is your birthday? Remember I will be in Greece for all of October. I don't think that I could go to Chicago. What are you going to do there?
I am not sure if they celebrate Halloween in Greece, but I will find out and let you know. My guess is that they don't and that Halloween is mainly a United States Holiday. What do you think?
