Family Trip - 2012

This trip has been in the planning for a year. Normally when I travel with Doreen, we basically pick a location to head for and whatever road gets us there is a guideline but the map is always open and subject to change.... often.

Now after an 11 year lapse, my husband Steve and I are going to head out together and "cross the pond". Steve wants to follow his father's footprints, so to speak, and see where he was during the war in June 1944. His father spent time in England and France, and landed in Normandy, so this route will be our general guideline.

Also, my daughter Jennifer has been trying for years to get us to come to the south of France with her and her son Cole, to a little house in Agde, where she first visited 14 years ago. So the last half of the trip will be based out of Agde, with side trips to Carcassonne, Nice and the Mediterranean coast, or anywhere else our interests take us.

This mode of travel is totally out of my element as we rely mainly on planes and trains before automobiles and I don't get to navigate for the most part. So hopefully the "planning" is not in vain and we all have a great trip.
