What an exciting journey! I cannot imagine anything more exciting than traveling around the world. I've always wanted to go to Switzerland, or Paris, France, or Vienna, or IRELAND...Everytime I see the Irish landscapes, I want to jump in the car, drive to an airport, (oops, no, I would hate to fly)...I guess I'd have to ride a boat LOL.. But anyway, you get the drift. Travel is something my mother loved doing as well. She went to all 50 states...including Alaska, and Hawaii during her senior years. She always joked, "I'm spending my kids' inheritance", and I used to tell her, "go ahead Mother, you deserve it. Travel, have fun!!" I remember when she flew to Hawaii with 2 of her sisters and had the ball of her life. She never wore make up but when she came back, she had rouge and lipstick on, which really shocked me. As a preacher's wife, I can only remember her wearing powder, and that was it. She and my Dad traveled to Alaska one year, and they thoroughly enjoyed the trip. My father would have gone to Hawaii with her, but he opted out, because he is afraid of flying, like I am. He probably really missed a fantastic time. I still have all the Hawaii pictures my mother took, and the beautiful postcards and souveniors she brought back.
So...I say to you, if you can travel...then TRAVEL. See the world, and good luck to Nicholas Rapp as he starts out on his fantastic and exciting adventure! http://autos.aol.com/article/driving-around-world?icid=main|htmlws-main-n|dl4|link3|http%3A%2F%2Fautos.aol.com%2Farticle%2Fdriving-around-world
