It's Here!

I can't believe I'll be on my way... tomorrow. The time has just flown by. This is my first trip out of the country since I was stationed in the Philippines back in the late 60s... not counting the few times Sjanna and I vacationed in Canada. As a globe traveler I'm a total noob.

I finally had my appointment with the ENT specialist last Friday. He confirmed that I had ruptured both eardrums, but they're healing well. He said my symptoms will resolve over time. At the moment my hearing is still a bit strange but getting better and my Eustachian tubes are finally open. Thankfully, it won't be painful to fly.

I've been packing for the past 2 weeks. "What to wear" is something I've never really considered. I usually wear what's comfortable, so planning for mid spring in Switzerland and Italy has been... well... I'm layering. In the middle of the clothes and stuff, I've packed a few slot cars, my entries for the MMM. I'll also be taking my Nikon and laptop so I can keep you all updated.

Stay tuned!


  1. C,mon Greg. You're not a total noob. You're a special noob. Have a safe enjoyable flight. We'll be watching this space.

  2. Yeah! I'm so happy for you...if a bit jealous. I'll be watching for pictures. Can I ask for pictures of something other than cars too?

  3. Yo Greg,
    Have a nice flight and lots of fun in Italy. Give my best to Swissracer - tell him I'm the guy who tried to hook him up with a Brazilian friend of mine who made a business trip to Switzerland last year. Keep an eye out for everything history related: Italy is just remarkable in that aspect!

  4. We need a new entry! I am so jealous! I'm living vicariously through you, so post a new entry! Post some pictures!

  5. Yes Greg, RJ is right: how about you posting something on YOUR blog...? :^) Inquiring minds want to know more about your trip to the EU!
