Wow! It has been so warm here in Calgary this winter it is unbelievable. The weather gods lied to us in a good way as they called for the coldest weather in decades and it has been the exact opposite so far. It has been warmer than what was predicted, but I hear my friends over in Europe and Russia are getting the winter we were supposed to get with record cold temperatures as well.
Getting ready for my next trip! I am booked to go to Panama on February 15th. Maybe while I am down there I will go to Costa Rica but that may depend if I stay two weeks. I predict it will be cold here by then and I picked up the trip for $199.00 plus $309.00 in taxes. I am also going to rent a car for a week for $175.00 so I had to pick up an international license at the cost of $25.00 for a year.
For the people that are interested in going to Cuba. I am looking at going either February 27th or March 5th for a week maybe two depending on the weather in Calgary. I like to see more of where I am at the time and I will always find a cheap flight back home if I miss my original flight. I just hate making plans (dates) where I am supposed to be. Two more trips that I am looking at is one to Los Angeles this spring to see Michael Beckwith for a weekend and I need a summer holiday too. I have no idea where yet but I will keep everyone posted.
I have a friend coming to Calgary this weekend from British Columbia so maybe we will head out to Banff for the weekend. Another thing while I was home in Calgary last week I attended a gala for the Calgary Education Partnership Foundation. The picture on the top left is of the Mayor of Calgary and me enjoying the event.
