HI!
I think in many ways you must consider europeans to be strange, too..
I know it will be late, because I just wait for Frank to come home, we are invited to something similar to your baby shower...
Franks ex-collegue's little girl arrived on tuesday and now we go there to celebrate.... and it is at least 1,5h drive away from here...

hi,

There does seem to be a lot of
"us" here doesn't there.

When we go to Europe and tell people we
are from Seattle in America.. people quite often
ask us if we know their relatives in New York. I just love that.

hi,
We've mostly been in Greece.
But.. in 1998 we flew into Amsterdam and bought a van.
We drove all over for 10 weeks. France, Germany, Italy and Belgum.
But.. even that trip we spent most of the time in our village in Greece.
It's our home away from home.
