A temporary change
Thought I'd better post before everyone begins to think we are no longer around. We have been very busy the past week getting ready to fly to Frankfurt, Germany on Tuesday to begin our European vacation. As we usually due, we will be gone for a long time, not returning until early November.
In preparation, we have bought new luggage, deciding that maybe we could use the ones that have wheels. I'm sure most people would laugh at the thought of heading off for three months in Europe with the tiny pieces of luggage we favor, and to those that enjoy lugging around massive amounts of luggage, you obviously enjoy it or you wouldn't be doing it. We don't enjoy it, so we don't do it.
There will be more posted on the Daily Journal tomorrow as I get back into the rhythm of writing, but there will be one change during the trip. We will be posing a Daily Journal every day, but it will not be on this website. I've been reposting the Daily Journals on Blogger for some time, at least when I write anything that is, and just Blogger is what we are going to use for this trip. Linda can help me by typing what I dictate, but only if it is done in LiveWriter, which I know nothing about. You can see the Blogger page at http://www.because-we-can-bob.blogspot.com/
To make it easy, here is a link to it. We will be writing everyday, or maybe I should say, Linda will be typing in what I dictate every day, so if you want to follow along you can. And yes, today's Daily Journal will be posted there. Plus, on Tuesday I will write the Daily Journal to be just a link to the Blogger site so that anyone not reading what I haven't written everyday for the past month and a half will be know what's going on. Good Bob - Bad Bob - Confused Bob - Confused Readers. Hey, if it was easy we wouldn't be having this conversation.

Notice of Change
With this post there is a major change, albeit temporary coming to this on again, off again Daily Journal about the adventures of one Bob and Linda, full time RVer's and about to be European travelers.
To read the Daily Journal for from August 14 to Nov 7, copy and paste http://because-we-can-bob.blogspot.com/ into your browser, or use this link.
This is a temporary change during our three months traveling through Germany, Luxembourg, France, Spain, Morocco, Portugal and England. We promise to post every day, trying to give you a sense of what Life across the pond is like. From Germany, where Bob's roots are from, to England where Linda has her roots, we plan to have fun, to see the sights, but most of all, to simply enjoy Life. We hope you will follow along, and yes, all our various email address will be working so don't hesitate to send us comments as some of you already are.
During much of Linda and my life together this was what happened every Sunday afternoon or very early Monday morning
"So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh baby, I hate to go"
Now we leave together, living Life with a capital "L". As it says below: "Life is not a dress rehearsal. Don't be afraid to laugh, love and retire early." We did, and we have never regretted a minute of it. And Life only seems to get better and better. Don't be the person who sits around saying " I wish I would have", be the person who says "I did it."
