Effing Feline dislikes travel

I, Effing Feline, am dizzy with travel. After spending a week in Toronto we flew to London and from London to Amsterdam. As I write this, we’re in Bruges, Belgium, Mr V’s ancestral homeland and the best-preserved medieval city in Europe. WTF?  We spent hours inside rattling tin cans for this?
