A few months ago when we decided to make this trip it was, certainly for Miriam, far into the future. It was a nice little something to look forward to, but otherwise she was really too busy to be concerned about it.
This changed once she got the annual fair done! Then her travel itch started itching too. I have certainly noticed that, because she started suddenly to ‘interfere’ with things. Help finding hotels, help with the itinerary, etc. Sometimes she better not ‘interfere’, since usually what she thought of was already taken care of a long time ago. But now and then she surely had a few useful additions!
