In late 2011 Simone and I visited her sister Yanan in France and my brother Terry, nephew Steven and their families in England. The two-country, lots-of-driving vacation was a blast! Click the map at right (or click here) to read text and view photos from "Euro-Eleven."

Hawaii Cruise 2010
In December 2010 Simone and I took her mom and sister on a two-week cruise to/from Hawaii. Crossing the vast Pacific Ocean, with no other ships in sight for days in a row, was an awe-inspiring experience. We visited Hilo, Honolulu, Niumalu (Kauai), Lahaina (Maui), and (after returning 2200 miles to the West Coast) Ensenada, Mexico.
