Woo Hoo! Dragging out the luggage today getting ready for my baseball trip in exactly one week . The plane actually leaves on Thursday night and we’ll arrive early, very early, in Boston Friday morning and take a transfer to Baltimore. I’ve been fortunate to have traveled to some really great places these past 10 years. I’ve been on cruises to the Eastern & Western Caribbean, the Mexican Riviera and the Mediterranean. Toured England, Ireland, France, Italy, Spain and Monaco. But the God’s truth is my very favorite vacation was the baseball tour I took in 2004 with my grandson, Jake, who was 13 at the time. I knew back then I wanted to take this trip again. So here it is, 6 years later, and this is the same tour I took in 2004. There’s lots of baseball tours out there but I’d recommend Dan Lindsey’s Diamond Baseball Tours to anyone. They’re great! Also, they have different tours and my goal is to take them all! But this time I’m taking the same tour so I can share the experience with my spouse, sister and brother-in-law who are joining me . Here’s the schedule and I’ll share experiences daily as they happen. At least thats the plan……
- Saturday June 26 Washington @ Baltimore
- Sunday June 27 Minnesota @ New York Mets
- Monday June 28 Baseball Hall of Fame @ Cooperstown
- Tuesday June 29 Seattle @ New York Yankees
- Wednesday June 30 Tampa @ Boston
- Thursday July 1 Philadelphia @ Pittsburg
- Friday July 2 Cincinnati @ Chicago Cubs
So this week I’m cleaning the house so the babysitter won’t think I’m a slob (baby is a Pomeranian), buying last minute necessities like coffee filters, espresso, miniature bottles of everything (minimize problems with TSA), batteries for camera, laptop (whew. major investment!) suncreen and items to be determined. We’ll talk again in a few days! This is gonna be fun…….I wish you could all go with me! No, really!!
Ronni, maybe you could set up a private tour for your readers? I for one would be interested. I have always wanted to do this, but going alone is no fun!
Hmmm……something to think about! Let’s talk to Dan and see if he can work a deal for us! Thanks for the comment Loney!
We’re on a countdown, too. Looking forward to not only the Tour, but seeing some of the New England States, and of course, Cooperstown. Already been to NY and Chicago.
