Well it has been almost a month since my last post. In that time we returned to Illinois - went to The Netherlands - back to Illinois - now back to our routine of mowing the lawn - living life in Illinois. To say the least - it has been busy - very rewarding - looking forward to summer. A quick recap on the traveling - no issues to cope with - some minor delays - being patient a big help. Doing a Covid test to return to the States - very easy - negative results - no surprise. The Netherlands was a pleasant distraction from all the crazy things going on back home in the States - good food - friendly people - an easy place to navigate. We celebrated Mothers Day while there with a wine and cheese canal cruise in Amsterdam with a bunch of friendly tourists from all over the world. If you have considered visiting The Netherlands - we definitely recommend - would return if the opportunity presents itself.
