The last 5 weeks have just flown by and it has been really good to see all the family and friends again. I also want to say that I am so sorry that we didn’t see everyone and I hope they understand. As always, Louise and I extend an invitation to all of you to come join us…we will have a great time… Mikleane, I hope you and Ric were able to find your van OK….Thanks for everything !!! Leslee, Joelle, thanks for allowing us to barge in at your homes as well… We had a great time and of course really enjoyed the time with the kids !!! Again, the time home just went too quick, but we also were ready to head back to finish our journey. Amy, we are so proud of you…it takes a lot of talent to do the job you did in that talent search contest…congrat’s girl !!!
As we waited for our plane at Sea-Tac, we met a couple from Coeur d’ Alene, that were heading to Italy for their 26th wedding anniversary. At the airport in London, we met Varun, who has a company called The Luxury Travel Show. His company sounds wonderful for those that like to travel and travel in style…check it our on the internet.. www.theluxurytravelshow.com There is lot’s to see and learn. I also met Craig and his wife from San Diego. Craig is a staff writer for The San Diego Union-Tribune. Everyone with their own great stories… When we went to Delft to rent our second car, one of the men there was doing the paper work setting up our rental agreement and there was another that got on-line and printed out a train schedule with all the stops and where we had to change trains…what a group !!! It has been constant since we arrived in Europe, people bending over backwards to help us, guide us, pay a few coins at the grocery store for us, take a meal that was being prepared for a uncle and giving it to Louise, inviting 4 straingers to a 3 day Turkish Wedding by the groom 2 hours prior to the big event (I don’t think “Mother” was all that impressed..), and many many more…it’s good to get back !!!
