Had a lovely little break the first of this month with a week cruise out of San Juan...really super easy and short flight from Panama and what was nice was that the weather on the cruise was just like at home. The highlight for me was visiting Anthony Hunte and his stunning tropical gardens in Barbados. I really do not like cold weather any more so what do I do when I get back from this cruise but turn around and the next morning head to Scotland! I was all set though, had plenty of warm clothes, leggings, scarves and mittens to keep me warm but what was missing...well, my luggage. I had no clothes for a two day trade show with special evening dinner events and then a four day fam trip afterwards. Sigh...big sigh...as I had to run around and get stuff after trade show days...long story short, I didn't get my luggage until four days after arriving. But that in no way made my trip any more wonderful or my memories of it dampened. The show must go on! Home now and in work mode getting the last two tours ready for 2019. I finally made it!! 1 Million Miles on just one airline. That doesn't count the other airlines I have flown around this beautiful earth so it is really quite a milestone. I still have a couple of spots left on my Belgium Tour in September so take a peek and come along with a lovely small group of floral designers and garden lovers.

I hope you are following me on facebook so you can see what I am up to here in Panama and on my travels.
