After spending three days in London, our tour group went to the train station in Kent and boarded a high-speed Eurostar headed to Paris.  I don't recall much about the Chunnel -- the tunnel beneath the English Channel that connects England and France -- oth...

European Experience -- The Beginning
On May 6, my wife Mary and I left our cozy Kentucky home for an 11-day vacation to the Europe. London, Paris and Roma, to be more precise. We made our decision last December to take that 10-hour flight across the big pond and make one of our trips of a life...

European Experience -- London Calling
Ever since I was a teenager I dreamed of visiting England, especially London. I guess it must have been the influence of the Beatles and the British Invasion in the mid-1960s. But I always had a deep love and appreciation in the history of western civilizat...

Back to the Manuscript -- Part Five
After taking a two-week break, I've returned to my work in progress.  I must admit that it was nice to get away from the manuscript. Why? Because for 11 days I was vacationing in the European cities of London, Paris and Roma. (More about my travel adventure...
