The unexpected – an upcoming trip
Posted on 7 Aug ’11 by Earl
I’m presented an unexpected opportunity. My wife works for an European company and will attend a three day meeting in Bucharest, Romania, in mid-September. I’ve decided to accompany her with some days added to the beginning and the end of the meeting portion. We’re thinking on the way to Romania we’re stop at Munich, Germany, for a couple of days and then return with a couple of days in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Photographically and otherwise, I’m traveling light — taking a four/thirds camera with a couple of lens, my Canon S90 and my iPad. I’d love to have my Nikon D700 with full gear and a laptop but we’re going to be moving and doing as much as possible in a short amount of time and I don’t want to have to keep up with it all.
The biggest issue we face is finding someone or someplace to care for our dogs while we’re gone. Our last experience with the most convenient boarding solution wasn’t good at all and I wouldn’t feel right using them again. Maggie and Foster are not small little house dogs (they are house broke) and Foster has special needs which makes it harder. I’d love to find someone who would come to the house to care for them — we’re looking! We love these dogs but they sure have tied us down.
I’ll have more to say on this as the time grows closer. Any comments or suggestions are as always welcomed!
