Two recent family deaths.
Reminders that I need to enjoy every day as much as possible.
Reminders that some things on my to-do list have rolled over to the next day's list too many times. A few of them are things I want to do before I return to the dust.
With those thoughts in mind, next year my daughter and I will tour Europe. Definitely France and Italy. The UK may be on the list as well because a branch of our family tree hails from Scotland.
Likely a stop in Switzerland because it borders France and Italy, so why not.
Weather will dictate time of year. I prefer warm weather and sunshine. So does she.
This will be one of a few vacations where beach time is not a priority. :)
We'll focus on food, fun, meeting new friends along the way.
There will be lots of walking, train rides, sleeping in hostels and pensions.
Research has been ongoing for a few years. (Thanks Joseph Rosendo and Rick Steves!)
Something wonderful to look forward to.
