Barcelona, Spain; Day 4

So the two youngest, yucky feeing Adventurers turned up positive for their at-home Covid test. Bummer. We knew Europe had a much higher Covid rate than Africa and the risk would be higher, but breakthrough infections still stink. When CreeperPuppy and CreeperKitty came down with a fever it seemed the prudent thing to do wasContinue reading “Barcelona, Spain; Day 4”

Hurghada, Egypt; Day 7

Our last day in the coastal town of Hurghada saw our family looking for Covid-PCR test results and one last trip into the blue waters of the Red Sea.

The hospital seemed to take things more seriously than ourContinue reading “Bangkok, Thailand; Day 7”

Bangkok, Thailand; Day 5

Today started with some life maintenance activities. Everyone’s favorite – dental cleanings!! Hard to believe we’ve been traveling for over 7 months and we’re due for another cleaning. Actually we’re a tad early, but we decided getting them done in Bangkok would be easier than where we’ll be traveling in the next couple of months.Continue reading “Bangkok, Thailand; Day 5”
