Gui and I have wanted to go to Europe ever since we first started dating, 15 years later...we finally made it. He had been with his family and I had been with mine, both as kids, but never together. We traveled to loads of places, but could never make that long journey here. We had lots of excuses why...it's too far, too expensive, the time change sucks, there are so many other places to go and see that are closer, easier to get to and cheaper. Then we had children and thought, no way am I taking those lunatics on a 8-10 hour plane ride. Then our entire lives changed when Gui's company offered him and us, an opportunity to work and live abroad in England for 1 year. Well, hell yes...sign us up! This was a dream come true; we didn't even think twice. We leapt into this head first. We sold the house and the car (we had to keep my husband's 1975 International Harvester Scout ii, of course, but the Tahoe had to go!), told our families and friends, and then poof...made it to England 4 months later.
Let the traveling commence!
