I present you all with a mystery.

The husband and I are currently putting the finishing touches on our trip to Greece and Italy. Because that’s what you do as soon as you finish living on a bus for seven months: you go travel more.

Things were going really well as far as trip planning, but then we got an email cancelling our flight from Crete to Venice. Which is weird.

I should explain that the windows in this dorm reached from waist height to the ceiling and spanned the length of the room. So any logical person closed the window when they were changing, or changed in the bathrooms that connected each of the suites.
