     This will be my first entry in my first 'blog'.  I have been inspired by my daughter Deirdre's blog entries for some time now.  Recently a colleague sent me a link about a mutual acquaintance (Ken Delmonico), who was traveling and writing about his experiences on this 'travelpod' site.  Intrigued, I checked it out and am now determined to begin recording our trips in what I hope will be an interesting manner.

     We have been getting more excited as the date for our departure draws closer.  Darlene has packed and re-packed, as our trip will encompass not only Disneyworld and travelling around Orlando for a bit, but also a cruise following that.  I have an easy role to play in this, as I do the heavy lifting and ensure all the travel arrangements have been made.

     Getting to the airport was easy, as was the check-in process with Westjet, our preferred airline carrier. We are pretty sure we have everything, from a GPS for the rental vehicle whilst in Florida, to cameras, to TJ's Nintendo and all associated chargers. We also have quite a bit of paperwork to cover all the plans, reservations and bookings we have made in advance.

      Our first stop will be a layover in Toronto for about 4 hours. We have to get our bags and get them thru customs as our next leg will be an international flight to Florida.  We have contacted Tim and Heather to let them know our arrival time and if the roads are OK, they will meet us at the airport so Tim and TJ can have some time together.  We have not told TJ yet, as the weather may be inclement or something else may occur.

     Anyway, the photo above is of our place as we depart on our big adventure!
