Back Home!Tuesday, May 16, 2006
I've been home for a couple of days now, but the last nine days before, Av and I have been in Israel mostly - this was my third trip there, and Av's tenth! We had a really, really great time...for the most part!
We'd planned to stay another week and go around Europe more, but I got sick! Can there be a worse thing on vacation than getting sick?! Thankfully it wasn't too bad and I didn't get sick until we had been there a few days, but I still had to go see a doctor in Jerusalem just to make sure it was a cold and nothing to really worry about. I guess I was due for a cold, anyway, because it's been well over a year - maybe almost two years - since I've been sick last!
Av decided the best thing would be for us to leave and go home straight from Tel Aviv once I was feeling well enough to fly, rather than take our flight back to Europe (we were going to spend one day in Warsaw, then fly over to Amsterdam again, then use our Eurail passes to overnight to Venice, and then from there just go all over, like we did on our honeymoon) - and for us to just reschedule the Europe part of our trip for later this summer or in the fall.
By the time we were making our change of plans, *he* wasn't feeling all that great. At first, we were thinking it was his allergies acting up because we had been outside a lot, and a lot of the flowers were blooming - but by the time our plane landed in Atlanta, we knew from the cough he had developed overnight on the flight that he had a real cold too! He's totally feeling better now - we both are - but that was no way to spend part of our vacation!
I'll post pics from our trip later today and tomorrow. We had a really nice trip (except for the colds), and I'm so glad to be home!
