While we’re not traveling abroad this year, we decided to dip our toes in the travel pool by catching a couple of baseball games. It should be simple, easy travel without many frills, but still fun.
We’ll start by cheating and seeing a game right here in Buffalo. We managed to get tickets to see our current “Home Team”, the Toronto Blue Jays as they battle the Baltimore Orioles. It should be a fun Saturday afternoon at the ball park.
Next, we’ll venture out later in the summer to see the Chicago Cubs vs Washington Nationals in Washington, DC. It’s a nice ball park, we like both teams and Sue hasn’t been to Washington, DC.
A couple night games would allow us to do some sight-seeing during the day or a day game would give us a chance to see the monuments at night, which is supposed to be quite the sight. Whatever the case, it’s a chance to get away for a few days and test the travel waters.
Since we’re on the topic of travel, next year’s travel plans for Italy are shaping up nicely. Locations have been chosen, a few reservations have actually been made and the excitement is building. We’ll talk about that later though.
