We love to travel.  We also love having and being in a comfortable home.

We returned to the USofA June 2016 after living in Mexico since January of 2006.

Prior to our retirements, (we opted to retire very early, in our 50’s) we traveled mostly within the USofA, except for yearly dive trips to Mexico and Central America.

In 2004 we did travel to France for our first European Adventure.

We’ve now also traveled to Spain, Portugal, and Italy.  I do love travel, and I do love European travel.

Mostly since returning we’ve only traveled between Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
We are ready and planning our next European adventure.

Great Britain

I was getting ready to go back to Merida to visit friends, and discovered my passport expires in July.  Just FYI – many, if not all airlines require more than 6 months remaining on your passport to let you fly.  As far as I can tell this is not a government rule, but an airline rule.

So no visit – My passport is enroute  to renewal center which estimates 4-6 weeks for processing.  And it now costs $110.00 usd for renewal. Crikeys!

Anyway, planning has started – for how long, what major areas, must see/do recommendations, …

About Debi in Merida

I moved from Colorado Springs, Colorado USA to Merida, Yucatan, MX in January 2006. I love to read, garden, travel, and hang out with friends. Then in 2016 I moved to Richmond, Virginia, USA. Culture shock continues.

    I know how ridiculous this is! I had to the same thing last year, and I also had to redo my green-card. Both of them are pricey, ob top of that they are both good for only 10 years!
