When I was in my early twenties ( way back in the 60's),I ventured out on my first trip to Europe.Not a care in the world! Life was great! My boyfriend and I did the 10 month trip to Europe via the Ryndam, a Holland America ship , crossing the Atlantic in five days. Got a job for a couple of months at Selfridges department store in London as a supervisor in the cafeteria. I was pretty surprised to land such a job being only 20 with no references. I guess because I was attending university, they thought I had the qualifications. It was so easy in those days to get jobs like that in London. The other offer I had was a clerical job at Harrod?s. I lasted about two months at the job and left for sunnier climes!
