To-do list

Slowly we get things done on my to-do list. Eye checkups, dental checkups…check. We visited our Commercialista to get our taxes started. This is the other item on the list of things the Questura asked us to get before they will consider giving us the EU Permesso Lungo Periodo. We hope to have this by the first week in June so we can go to the questura before our trip.

I can see ears perking up out there! Yes! we have a Big Trip planned. June 14 to 28. A cruise around Spain and Portugal with a stop in Casablanca with the Windstar line. This time on a yacht called the Star Breeze that holds 300. My sister and her husband are coming too. This will be the first time I have seen my sister in THREE years! The longest we have ever been apart. This trip is the same trip we had planned for July pf 2020. Of course that one never sailed due to the shut down of all cruising because of Covid. We are both super excited. Luther and I have some dear friends coming from Toronto to house and cat sit at our apartment while we are gone. They love our boys and I won’t have to worry about them while we are gone.

Anyway, we have just two weeks and a couple days before we leave. We really want to get the documents requested by the Questura done and turned in before we go. You all know how badly I want this Permisso Illimitato.

    Ciao Carlo, thanks. We are looking forward very much, to the trip! The Greece/Turkey trip is on the Wind Star which is my favorite ship. It’s smaller and older and has less amenities, but that is fine with me. I will see how I like this bigger, fancier ship on this trip. First sailing on a ship besides the Wind Star.

    Hi Tina, we spent time in Portugal a few years ago…the interior. We flew into Lisbon and drove north to Porto then inland up the Duoro river and explored Port country. The thing that struck me was the dryness, the evidence of many fires and active fires. I think this is normal there in summer. Anyway, this time just the Coast. A trip report will follow!

    How funny. Just in the last few days we have been planning a Windstar cruise to Greece and Turkey. What truly lovely ships. We saw the Spain, Portugal, Morocco cruise you will be going on. Sounds great. And, what a special treat to spend time with your sister and brother-in-law again after all this time. All the best to you and Luther — Permesso Lungo or not!

    Nancy, all our best. Have a great trip. Sorry you cannot enjoy the interior of Portugal. But tell us about your coastal visions!
