I took a long walk today wearing a sweatshirt that was perfect, although as soon as I came back inside, it was way too warm! (And not something that can be gracefully shed, unfortunately) Layering is the key to happiness, travel-wise.
While we are talking about packing, don't worry about packing fancy shoes- really, there is no need for them. Instead, please be sure that you have comfortable, broken-in walking shoes that give your feet good support. Really, it makes a huge difference in how your day feels, if your feet feel good or hurt!
Finally, PBS has a free app that allows you to watch many of their most popular series. One of the episodes from Rick Steves Travel combines two others about Palestine and Israel, and covers the various topics very well in just over 50 minutes.
Have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving. I look forward to seeing many of you on Sunday Dec 6 for our next pilgrimage group meeting. Scott Scherer, president of Catholic Travel Centre will be joining us. Peace.
