Yesterday Holland America got the keys to the Koningsdam. The Italian flag was retired respectfully removed and the Dutch flag went up.
I'm so excited to explore the ship!
I was up at 5 this morning - too excited to sleep. Phin had no problem staying in bed until he realized the suitcases were on the move.
The worst part about traveling is leaving the dogs. They have a wonderful dog sitter who comes and lives with them at the house so we don't have to worry. Yesterday the dogs went for grooming and the groomer asked if something has been upsetting Phin because he was out of sorts during his spa treatment. He knows something is up. We've had the suitcases out to pack and he has been stuck to us like glue ever since. We were also told when we adopted him that his previous owner left him at the groomer and never returned so maybe he was having a flashback. This morning Westley was determined he was getting in the car with us. Those little animals can make me feel so guilty!
We said our good byes, parked at the airport and got here early to get our boarding passes for the flights. We weren't able to check in on line yesterday and for some reason we can't get our passes for our flight from Toronto to Rome. We have to do it when we arrive in Toronto. Pain in the butt but hopefully it works out.
We we have decided to do our colour photo challenge again this trip. My colour is lime green and James' is red. Here I am with a lime green wall to start things off.
We will start boarding very soon...we are off on our adventure!
