Until 10 years ago, we thought vacation meant camping and long road trips. Don't get me wrong, those were (and still are) lots of fun and rewarding....until we had an offer to go to Europe with friends. Never had a passport before, never had to pack for a flight and for a vacation that did NOT involve camping. Had never set foot in a country whose primary language was not English (except Baja), hadn't ever even left this continent at that point (except to Catalina Island, but that doesn't count).
So off to Europe we went and became totally hooked on world travel ever since!
