Why I don't travel

My parent's just returned from being on a 2 week Mediterranean cruise.

It was killing me to not have our twice daily phone calls for that long. So my mom and I have had some serious primetime t.v. catching up to do.

But they brought us back loads of fabulous chocolates, which more than made up for these. And since Spain's nutritional facts are in kilos...and since I slept through the part of converting kilos into grams I'm going to take a pretty good educated guess and say these wonderful delicacies have only 10 calories.

Yep that sounds about right...okay just don't correct me and let me continue to live in caloric denial because they are really good.

When we sent them off we were commenting how bummed we were that we couldn't go and then 2 days later my mom called and said that she was panty less in Barcelona (not by choice) because Mr. Airline decided that bag just wasn't necessary.

And then I was no longer jealous.

Because that's a crucial piece in travel-packing and it's not like the streets of Spain are loaded with Hanes and Victoria Secrets, but thankfully a few stores and two interpreters later she found some to board the plane in hopes that her luggage would find her as promised.

And it did 10 days later.

Oh, no, you're freaking me out! We are going to Barcelona in a few weeks and then doing a Med. cruise. My greatest fear (well, besides a plane crash, or getting some horrid stomach ailment) so ONE OF my greatest fears is not getting my luggage!! At least she eventually got it, but still...

Oh no! That is terrible! At least they had the chocolate to sustain them through the stress!

I heard about this "through the grapevine." Poor thing! I would like to comment though since someone said they were going to Barcelona, that this probably doesn't happen all that often in comparison to how many people travel daily. So I hope that traveler has fun. I definitely don't envy your mom but I'm sure they at least still had some fun! Where all did they go?
