My first time in Europe was the November right after September 11th 2001. We almost didn’t go at all. But, we decided to not let anything make us afraid, and we headed to Ireland. It was that first trip that made me fall in love with travel. We drove all over the country visiting family, and I knew from that moment that I wanted to see the entire world.
From there, I continued to travel around Europe once more with my family and other times with friends. I have seen a lot of the continent, though there is still so much I’d like to see.

In July of 2006, my family drove through Austria and Slovenia, but I didn’t feel I learned enough about the culture to count them here. One day, I hope to return.
