NAVIGATING IN NORTHERN ITALY—THE SILVER FOR GOLD TRIP

It was our 25th trip to Europe[SILVER], our 15th to Italy, but this one was special. It was conceived to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary[GOLD].

Our final night in Venice we met our good friends of 60 years, Judy & Paul, for dinner. We got our car the next day and they stayed with us for the next 2 weeks. They too were celebrating their 50th—it just made good sense. Actually Judy was my girlfriend in the 8th grade—life goes full cycle.
