It was two years ago this month that I took the biggest trip of my life thus far! The journey covered 6 countries in 2 and a half weeks. A lot a miles were covered but the greater journey was the one that my mind’s eye experienced. I saw, tasted heard and smelled things so foreign to my senses that even two years later I am still unraveling the affair! I can’t explain it but when I came back from our trip I didn’t want to share it with anyone! I wanted to keep it locked up and safely close to my heart. The memories are like a rare and delicate lace that I pull out on special occasions to peer at life through. They decelerate my fast paced life for a brief unhurried moment.
I treasure my memories like a fine old wine! However, I decided to start working on piecing my memories together and giving them to you too. I started thinking about it and, well, wine is always better when it’s shared amongst friends! So I hope you enjoy my unravellings!

We are on our flight to Europe! Our plane is rolling down the runway as we talk about the price of meals on the flight and how happy we are we got snack food at the airport (which was also pricey!) I wish my family could be here with me on this journey/experience but wow! I hope that I can capture the next 16 days in words and pictures! I’m sure it won’t do it justice but at least it will be something I can look back on and remember. Note: Amy’s scared but we have Dave and Josh’s humor and snacks. We should be able to make the 7/8 hour flight to London, Gatwick airport
