I’m sorry for your loss, Iggy. It sounds like you have some good memories of your brother.


Jana, I’m glad you two are having a wonderful time.

So glad to hear the fires are contained. That is good news indeed.

The husband and I arrived in Spain yesterday. Our first flight from Colombo to Jeddah was 1.5 hour late leaving - it took that long to get the meals aboard the aircraft. We then spent 6 or 7 hours in the Jeddah airport waiting for the next flight, which was 45 minutes late leaving. This one was late because they didn’t have the right seat extender seat belt thingie for *me*, and it took that long to find one. The ones they had on board didn’t fit the seat belts. Oops. Anyway, even though it left 45 minutes late, it managed to arrive in Madrid 1.5 hours late. We then had to take the train from Madrid to Valencia, and the earliest train that had seats was at 8:40pm, so we spent 5 hours in the train station waiting to leave. And I got harrassed by two people in Spanish in the three minutes that Fahim was gone to get us food - we had good seats, and they wanted Fahim’s. All I could manage was “me esposo” as I pointed at the seat, “no entiendo” and... Yeah. That’s it. The one guy looked like he was just going to move Fahim’s backpack himself, he was that pushy. And then they glared at me for the next hour, long after Fahim came back and sat down.

Anyway. We’re in Valencia. We’re in a rented apartment. We bought basic groceries this afternoon. We took a four hour nap, much needed. And we’re recovering from the trip. Yay.

If it affects him in any way - including if it affects ME in a way that could affect how I interact with him or my ability to fulfill my responsibilities - I tell him.  The level of detail in what I share with him is determined by how much impact it has on us.  I don't know if that's sharing-for-bonding or sharing-to-avoid-secrets.
This is pretty much how we do it, too. I don't know the details of every single conversation the hubs has, and I don't care. Him, likewise. But if it impacts him, I share. Him, likewise.

It's not that the rest are secret. If either of us asks, the other tells as much as the asking person wants to know. It's that it's irrelevant and unimportant to the other person. We tell no lies and we don't evade. We just don't volunteer absolutely everything.

Nope. But why not be excited for you, Patty? It would be an adventure, right? :)

I quit using Yahoo for email a very very long time ago. In the beginning, it was okay. But that didn't last very long.

Jana, I also love reading about your adventures, so please, please do share them here.

I've done my own share of travel for work, as have other people close to me, so I'm well aware that travel for work isn't always fun. Of course it depends on the scheduling and how much down time you have, and that depends on the other people involved.

I'm glad you're getting these two vacations. :)

Take a hug, leave a hug? I'll add some hugs to the bag, Jana, if you don't mind.

That sucks, Redd. :(

Jana, Sri Lanka simultaneously has a drought situation with heavy rainfall in some areas. We had heavy rains with strong winds overnight, strong enough winds that it sounds like the roof is going to come off. It didn't come off, though, thank heavens.

General Discussion / Re: bug out bags for my office

I pack in much the same way as Jana - I pack as though it's the only thing we'll have, so we have my pills along with other essentials with us, like at least one change of clothing, but heavy on the extra underwear side of things. I also bring emergency food because of my allergies.

Three days of food and water along with change of clothing and hygeine items would be packed, but definitely doable. It would be heavy due to the water.

The best luggage we have was bought 18 years ago in Canada and doesn't have a brand name. It's still in the same condition as it was the day I bought it. Luggage doesn't seem to hold up like that any more - we had one suitcase that didn't last for even its first flight.

I don't know what brands are better. Sorry I'm of no help.
