Where in the world…

Posted by jerry on February 5th, 2006 — Posted in Journal, Travel

… would you like to go for dinner? With these words, our daughter Eve revealed the birthday gift she had put together for Sharon and I’s combined 50th birthdays. With that, she presented us with a collection of travel brochures for Europe and other parts of the world. To say we were astonished would be an understatement – I was practically in tears!

It seems she had been quietly saving for the past three years for this moment, having come up with the idea the previous year, when she was in Europe herself – backpacking. So for our fiftieth, she is buying airfares and dinner. This gift is doubly amazing when you consider that she earns her living with fire circus performances – it is not an easy way to earn a living.

It’s Sharon’s birthday today, and mine in March, so we have a little time to think about where we would like to go – I suspect that Italy and France are strong possibilities 🙂
