We’re back! We spent time abroad, off the grid –away from email, Facebook and our blog–with some of our best friends, seeing a fascinating new corner of the world. We came back revived, our eyes opened, and something I am calling our “sea mind” awakened. We had a superb vacation.
We remain fully inspired by our travels upon arriving home. At the same time, an 18 hour travel day to get here, Bjorn’s suitcase spending the night in Paris without us and diving back into work jet-lagged has had us in “catch up” mode for a little while. Our “welcome home” meal was a good old sub sandwich, a Hot Hoagie from Davanni’s, to be exact. Davanni’s is a low-key pizza and hoagie joint that started in our neighbourhood in 1947. They deliver, so we are frequent customers. This particular evening, we dined in. We both ordered our go-to sandwich, a Turkey Bacon Chipotle for Bjorn and a Veggie on wheat for me. We enjoyed these tasty, simple sandwiches served on a plastic plate and washed them down with a bottle of 3.2 beer. Travel and time with friends clears out mental fog, reminds us of who we are and want to be, renews appreciation and gratitude for friends, our house and garden, our lives, our hobbies, traveling, jobs and family time immeasurably. I plan to share it! To make that easier, in development are a dedicated Facebook page, a private host for the blog, and a renewed desire to enjoy life to the fullest and keep it simple. We’re glad to be back.
