My family did not travel much so I dont know where I got this travel bug from.
My first airplane trip was in 1967 to California when I was just 18 years old. The year after that (1968) I had the opportunity to go to Europe as a student. It was an organized tour to London, Paris and Innsbruck. I had such a wonderful time that I had to do it again the following year (1969). This time it was to London, Paris and then to Venice where we began our one-week Mediterranean Cruise with stops in Rhodes, Athens, Istanbul, Dubrovnik and Beirut. It really opened up my young eyes to all the beauty and versatility in this wonderful world of ours.
In September, 1970 I met the love of my life, Hans,with whom we just celebrated 45 years of marriage.
We have two beautiful children - Nicole and Brian.
Hans and I love to travel and will keep on doing so as long as we can.

Splendid weather! Even the name Torremolinos sounds splendid. I have some Spanish friends, Juan & Gena, who live in Valencia, and I spent some time with them at a country house outside the city for a weekend. It was really a pleasant slice-of-life experience and a break from running around seeing the tourist sights.

Hi Lori, good of you to stop by and say hello. Thanks for the smiles in my New England Road Trip blog. Summer went by in a breeze it seems. Spain sounds splendid! I visited only once in 2009 (Barcelona-Madrid-Valencia), but want to go back for more some day. How is the weather there in Spain during February?

Hello again Lori,

just got back from a rather mad trip round Europe as I had to pick up a new ATM card. I'll be on Canada in a few days but unfortunately on the "wrong" side of your huge country so we'll hardly get to meet up.

Hope you and Hansi are enjoying the summer.
