Traveling Light

Dear Family and Friends,

Chuck and I are off again. We leave Monday for one month in the United Kingdom and the British Isles.  During the month we will visit England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

We will be repeating two of the cities we went to only a couple of months ago, but each was so great we are anxious to do them again. We are excited about meeting up with our former Cuenca neighbors, Karen and Larry Schunk, in Edinburgh.

I had the bright idea of doing this trip with only carry on luggage.  With stopping along the way to do laundry a couple of times, we should be able to do this with no problem.  I know other people who have done this and I am sure we can too.

Most likely, I will not be posting to the blog about our trip until we return in October.  However, I will post some pictures of Facebook and Instagram from time to time.  Facebook name:  Nancy Powers Watson  and  Instagram name: ecuadorchick, just in case you would like to follow our pictures as we travel.

We have another big trip planned in January of next year.  We are traveling to Tucson, AZ to visit family and from there we are traveling to India.  I have been reluctant to go to India in the past, but we have booked this trip through Gate1. We traveled with them when we went to China last fall and they did a marvelous job of taking care of us, so I feel quite sure we will have a wonderful experience in India also. The link to Gate1 website is:

The reason I am telling you about India is so that if you would like to join us you will have plenty of time to book your trip.

Details of our India trip:

12 Day Kaleidoscope of India (Jan. 28 - Feb 8, 2018)

We are tacking on a second tour of southern India since we will already be there.

16 Day Spiritual Southern India (Feb 8 - Feb 23, 2018)

If you are interested in doing either of these trips with us, you now have the information needed to contact Gate 1.


12 Day Kaleidoscope of India - as of now the price is:  Land only $1449, Land and Air $2049.

16 Day Spiritual Southern India - as of now the price is Land only $1749, Land and Air $2609.

We are only doing the land tours and booking the air travel ourselves.

Let us know if you decide to go on this tour.  Our email address is in the About Us box at the top of this blog. It would be fun having someone else to share this adventure with.

So this is about it until we return from the UK.  Looking forward to posting about that trip when we return the first of October.
