Almost 5 years

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

It is almost 5 years since I headed  to Spain to walk the Camino. I was thinking very hard about going again in 2017. It is not going the happen the spring.
I notices it would cost less for the round trip air far and it cost me 5 year ago for the one way ticket I had.

Part of this is the cost of fuel and part is the Euro to Dollar value.

2012  years a gallon of gasoline cost about $4.10. I just paid $2.13
2012  for me to exchange US Dollars for Euros, I paid about $1.67. Now it is $1.08 for each.
2012 I paid $685 to fly for Chicago ro Paris then to Biarritz France. This time I can fly from Chicago, Paris, then Biarritz France then after Walking the Walk I can fly from Santiago Spain, to Paris then back to Chicago for about $642.

Maybe I should go anyway. Na, I don’t want to go. But I could gather my things and be ready to go on a monuments notice!

I installed WordPress’s JetPack just now. I want to monitor to see how this site is doing.

The stats program in it looks to be quite well.

Anyone else using it?
