I'll be back . . .

Jump to last reply

I first traveled across the Atlantic Ocean in 2002 to the UK and since then I've had the wonderful experience of returning to the UK twice and then Italy and France. Each time, i've always made a point of trying to spend my pounds and euros before I leave each respective country with the thought that this is a trip in a lifetime.

I'm traveling to Paris with my dearest sister in April after my first trip there last year. I have determined that never will I accept my previous philosophy of 'this will be my last trip.' I will tuck away any unspent euros and believe in my heart that I will return so long as I am able.

My sister is 71 years old and has never been to Paris. I've been on a very short visit last year. We are ardently looking forward to this trip even though the euro is rising against the dollar. If we don't do it now, we may never have the chance. Circumstances of our lives have proved this to be true.

Damn the torpedoes. Full steam ahead.
