Well, after months of deliberation, I recently finally picked and booked a 2020 tour!
While my top choice was the Adriatic, given our work schedules and other logistics, I would not be able to travel during the months I'd ideally like to visit, nor for as long with pre- and post-tour excursions.
The new Andalucia tour caught my eye, but ultimately I chose Greece!
Paid my deposit, got confirmed! Preparations and research began, the anticipation builds, and the next morning, I come home from the gym to find a surprise from my wife waiting for me...
A positive pregnancy test!
Yep, we're expecting next spring!
Though I was a little bummed I wouldn't be travelling next year -- and had just booked less than 24 hrs prior -- ultimately I can't complain, as this news is infinitely better. Oh well! I'll be back to Europe one day sure enough.
