Andrea and I are off on another short trip for a couple of weeks to Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo in Mexico from 13 to 30 May 2011. This time we will be traveling with “MY” nurse, Alicia, who some of you know. Some call her nurse Ratchet but we prefer to think of her as nice nurse niece Alicia! Actually, Alicia will be joining us just for the first week of our trip in Ixtapa. Also, she is not actually “MY” nurse but she is “A” nurse and, as I said, also our niece. Alicia has managed to accumulate enough paid overtime so that she will be earning her hourly rate while lounging on the beach or whatever else she gets up to. Nice work if you can get it! Keep on paying those taxes.
It seems that anytime we head off on a trip, many of our friends and acquaintances ask if I will be sending out my little travel newsletter, as I have done in the past. Well, the answer is yes but this time I will be trying something a little different. It is a much more efficient way to disseminate information and I hope you will bear with me through the inevitable learning curve of adapting to a new technology. It is simple to access and I hope you enjoy the content and images. You will also be able to leave comments if you choose.
Instead of sending out an individual e-mail to each of you, I will be posting to a Blog at WordPress.com that I am calling Keith’s Travel Ramble. This means that you will be able to control how, when, or even if you want to follow our wanderings. You can:
- Just go to the Blog website whenever you want to see what has been posted. You can access the Blog with your Browser at https://jkhowie.wordpress.com; or
- Go to the Blog and in the right hand column you will find a button where you can submit your e-mail address to receive an automatic e-mail notification each time there is a new post.
Over the next couple of days, I will send out an e-mail invitation to everyone who has participated in the past. This way, you can come to the Blog (https://jkhowie.wordpress.com) and sign up for your personal email notifications so you don’t miss any of our antics.
