Travel in Europe

Musings from my travel in England, France, & Italy in late 2011. After waiting a lifetime, I finally had an opportunity I couldn’t refuse. My England-native friend, Chris, was going to visit her mum and invited me along. Beyond that, her mum invited me to stay as long as I liked and use her place in Northampton as a home base for my travel on the continent. I warned her repeatedly she might never be rid of me — I was spoiled rotten and enjoyed every minute of my visit. Lucky for her, my budget was limited :-) And at long last, I am actually documenting my travels, based on the daily journals I kept throughout my three-week stay. Hope you get a laugh (or something else of value) from my stories. In some ways, it seems like just yesterday, and, in others, so long ago. Saw some great things and made some great friends along the way. Can’t wait to go back!
