  3. We travelled together extensively throughout Europe for several years in the 1970/80's in a camper van/motorhome (no, we were not hippies) doing the Grand Tour to further our knowledge and appreciation of art, architecture, cuisine and life affirmation of peoples and cultures. An investment of time and money we never regretted.
