And So It Begins...

My mom saved for this trip for about 10 years, and wouldn't take it with us. She wouldn't get on a plane. But she would allow her daughters to climb inside a thin, metal tube that would then be hurled across an icy ocean. She loved us.

So, tomorrow, my two sisters, Debbi and Janet, and my daughter, Mary, and I, will do just that. We will land in Italy....I wonder if, like in the movies, The Tarantella will play as the plane touches down?

You are welcome to join us on our trip through Europe. We'll visit ancient and modern sites, try new and familiar foods, drink a few glasses of wine and steins of beer, and even meet long-unknown family! Just become a Follower of this blog, and, we'll see you soon!


  1. Bon voyage! Hugs and kisses! We'll miss you so much but will be following your travels with love from afar!

  2. Living vicariously through you!! I was worried from the blog title that you couldn't find yours. That would be a bummer at this late date! Enjoy this trip of a lifetime!!
