On a walking tour of the old city in Jerusalem. I was from Boston, she from southern California. Late forties, having sadly ended long term relationships. Walked these ancient streets for hours, had lunch at a outdoor cafe. Talked about the lessons life has taught us and listened to each other.Walked her back to the King David Hotel and said good-bye in the lobby with a touch of our hands. My plane left that night. A wonderfully romantic meeting of two travelers in life.

Betsy and True-I am going to try-I hope I have the time-will just have to make the time. But, like I said, its just to say hi (30 years later!!)because I am happily married and have been for 18 1/2 years! And, my husband is WONDERFUl!! I even told him I might have to look up my old "Irish vacation boyfriend". He was OK with it-but he'd probably rather my not doing it but geez it WAS 30 years ago!! So, he's OK with it. You two are romantics like me!
I will definately post my whole trip report since I've been posting questions since last August and the whole thing of 10 of us going will be such fun but should make for good stories....And everyone has been so helpful!

someone here asked if anyone had fallen inlove in the middle east well i am a girl from saudi, and i lived in america for about 5 years up untill 9/11 where our family was asked to leave even though we had absolutly nothing to do with it but too many of the neighbors were complaining and so thats how i speak english. every summer sinse i was a child we used to go to turkey and so i i used to always go to the bazaar. one summer i was 17 years old i saw a very handsome boy he had the dirty blonde hair and sharp blue eyes, some what of tanned skin and tall. so in my eyes he was basically perfect and i had seen nothing like him especially sinse i lived in saudi with all the strict rules and stuff. so i went up to his shop pretending to look at stuff and then he came up to me and started speaking turkish and i didnt understand anything so he started speaking english and we hit it off pretty well i guess, so he gave me his number and i went back. obviously i had to keep this a secret or my parents would dis own me or literally kill me. soi called one night and he picked up so straight away he said im coming to pick you up. so every night for 3 weeks we would spend together untill one night my mother was looking for me and i got back i was beaten so hard by my father and i was forbidden to do anything for the next 4 years. that summer i went back to turkey i was 21 years old i went with my husband i had just gotten married and it was an arranged marriage so i went to the bazaar nd i found him with the cutest little girl i couldnt do anything so i came back the next day with my husbnd and as i entered one of the shops the woman working there pointed to the dressing room so i entered and found him. he straight away kissed me and hugged me so tight. i dont mean to be cheesy or anything but that moment was magical. after that he told me he got married and has a child and i told him i was married as well. at that moment we knew we couldnt do anything so i left and we said our good byes. to all the arabian girls out there follow your hearts because aranged marriages are not worth it.

We (both Americans) met in a small seaside town in Europe almost 40 years ago.
One of our sons proposed to his girlfriend in the same town (without even knowing that is where his parents met).
