Last year around December I took a trip to
The first plane we took was truly remarkable, reclining seats that folded all the way into a bed, T.V. screens in the headrest in front of you that featured games and recently released movies and not to mention a delicious three course meal that was mouth watering. The turbulence was a little nerve racking but once you get used to it it’s smooth sailing.

I urge all those who have to opportunity to go overseas to take advantage and spend all the time they can there. I am so fortunate that my Uncle was able to send my family to Europe to celebrate my grandparent’s fiftieth anniversary; without him I don’t think I would have gone to
