I Can't Believe Where I Am!!!

Wow!  Yesterday morning, I left Durango for an adventure of a lifetime!  I was so excited for my trip with Andy, but it didn't really hit me until I was here where I actually am!  I'm in Bahrain.  I'm on the Persian Gulf.  Really.  I was in Kuwait earlier today.  It is so crazy!

The craziest part is that I am actually staying on the "club" level of the Ritz Carlton, Bahrain.  UNBELIEVABLE!  I feel like a princess.  A very generous and thoughtful camp family are treating Andy and I to two days in the lap of luxury here at the Ritz.  I'm so glad and thankful they are.  I am being treated like a princess and I actually think I sort of deserve to be treated this way.  (Is that bad that I just admitted that "out loud"?)

And I do miss my children, but right at this moment with jet lag setting in, after eating at a super nice Indian restaurant with Andy and no spills and sitting in my amazing suite at the Ritz overlooking Bahrain. . .I really don't wish they were here!  I'll miss them later!

So, to friends and family back home:  we made it!  We are here and the trip was great.  The flights were easy.  A little hiccup in immigration (we were detained-ish for two hours) and Andy's suitcase didn't make it, but we did!  We're loving just being Party of 2 for a little while!

I'm excited to see the city and the beach tomorrow in daylight, but for now I am off to deep jet lag slumber!  (The shades close with the push of a button--total blackout!!!)

Les & GoGo, hug my kids for me--I really do miss them!

Who knew that Kuwait was the land of friendship?!?
I don't have any pics from Bahrain yet. . .stay tuned!
