More than twenty years ago, husband Paul, 10-year-old daughter Samantha and I embarked on our first European vacation. When we got married Paul promised me we would go to France within five years, and the deadline was approaching. We decided to spend five days in England before crossing the English Channel to France to ease our way into visiting a different country with a different language.
Paul likes to say he went on this first trip kicking and screaming but then realized how much he loved traveling. Many years and countries later, today we are excited to return to where our love of travel began.
