I spent the last 10 days in the UK at my friend Simon’s in London. Thank you Simon for even giving up your bedroom for me—and I always enjoy attending the Proms concert with you. I was also at my friend Jenny’s in Bakewell; it is always lovely to see Jenny. We met in Cambridge, UK very early in my travel days.
I feel the UK is in very bad shape: workplaces are very short of employees, doctors’ offices don’t have staff…even Boots Pharmacy, when they don’t have enough staff, just closes!! The idea of another Prime Minister, I just don’t see that helping at all. Young people seem just fine collecting benefits and not working. Brexit is, in my mind, a disaster. It has left the UK very isolated from the European Union and, as a traveler, I can see this has led to lots of line-ups (which were not there before) at security, passport control, luggage arrivals…they are all affected.
I arrived in Mallorca (Majorca) with my luggage; to play it safe, I had bought smart tracking tags for my suitcases. I am staying with my friend Kelly and husband JP. Kelly is Canadian and JP is Swiss. They have a lovely, very large property with about 30 animals: horses, goats, hens, dogs and many cats. Kelly is just marvelous with all the animals, but it is a lot of work. I hope to help Kelly, who has become an accredited teacher/mentor, set-up a HeartMath project.
Looking forward to being here in Mallorca. There are a tremendous amount of artists, etc., with a lot of very bright people from around the world. Loads of skills and talents. And it will be fun to connect with friends again. It is a very hot 96 degrees here, and it looks like it is staying that way for at least the next two weeks.
Take care everyone!
Always fun to see what you’re up to, Betty! Merri and I are still RV’ing in the US; currently in Massachusetts.
