Staying Grounded

   Very sad today about the horrific air crash in Iran. Lots of Canadians on board so many grieving families here. I only hope it turns out to have been an accident (or an accidental missile as the P.M. is proposing). I am worried things will escalate in the Middle East.

   I think the time has come for me to forego any more overseas flights. I have been thinking about this for some time (my last overseas trip was to Greece in October, 2018). There are plenty of places to visit in North America and I have always enjoyed rail travel. Time to get out the brochures and see what's available.


  1. It's terrible, isn't it? I am also very concerned about escallation into something out of control. Dark times.

    1. Still struggling to understand the enormity of the crime.

  2. It is very worrying. I don't know what the future will bring for all the innocent people caught up in this posturing on both sides.
    We have two more trips planned for the spring but I am not sure if we shall want to travel after that unless things settle down.

  3. I am hopeful that my one wandering sister will stay put for a few months. After her encounter with the pirates in the middle east this year I would have thought that enough of a warning to her! I agree Canada has some spectacular places to visit & some very rich historical places.

  4. "East, west, home's best" as they say.
