It’s Been a Long Life Journey

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.


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.
