Waiting for my flight from Austin to London Gatwick to board in an hour and a half. Then I will be on the first leg of my trip to Copenhagen.
Fifty years ago today, I sat with my Grandpa Rose in French Lick, Indiana and watched Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin land on the moon. It was an amazing experience!
I remember keeping my eyes focused on the black and white TV picture as Neil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon. I will never forget seeing Walter Cronkite’s eyes tear up with great respect and admiration for the United States having achieved the greatest feat ever taken on by mankind.
It seems very ironic that today, fifty years later, I embark on one of the greatest journeys of my life. Tomorrow I will set foot in Denmark for the very first time.
If your eyes tear up from pictures I post in the same way Walter Cronkite’s eyes teared up, I will know that I have really achieved something great.
I know it’s crazy – I go to Austin, Texas to have a California pizza.
It’s been a while since I have posted anything here, but I’m getting ready for a trip to Europe that will take me along the following train routes.
The fun will begin this weekend and I will try to keep everyone up to speed of what I am doing.
Here’s a postcard just for you all the way from Kralendyjk, Bonaire!
Jewel of the Seas stopped in Labadee, Haiti for the day yesterday.
Flying to Fort Lauderdale today in preparation for a 10 night cruise on Jewel of the Seas to the southern Caribbean leaving out of Miami on Friday. This will be my first time visiting the ABC islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao, along with Labadee.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
Southwest Airlines wished me a Happy Birthday today with a very special birthday video.
