Prior to heading out on holiday, you might remember a post about The Queen and her terminal diagnosis. I had planned to head out to see her once I returned. However, similar to her and my traveling companion, Helen last year, The Queen died while I was away.
Of course, I was told while in Amman and felt very helpless. The Queen and Helen spoke so highly of Egypt and Jordan and I thought of their stories often throughout. So in that respect, the many stories they shared with me will always be with me as I travel.
I had so looked forward to talking about my holiday with The Queen upon my return; comparing notes and stories. These two very special old ladies left me way too soon.
