More than 25 years ago, before I got married, I had a desire to go to Europe, being an art student you can imagine how much I wanted to touch the ancient history, be witness to the magnificent architecture, nature and culture of the “Old World”. I had my savings and a rough idea of when I could embark on the trip that would change my life story.
Well, then my plans were shattered when the family had a problem and my mother asked me to “lend” her my saved money during this hardship. I don’t have to tell you that after that, life then got in the way. I finished college, got married, moved to U.S., had kids, and thought I might do that trip after the kids grow up and we could afford it.
