You did meet a lot of people so I now see why you didn't have to spend your money on hotels.  So  you never saw the middle or western areas of the country.  What year or years were you doing this?  I know you have told me before but I don't know recall.  I suppose I was here living in this very house while you were traveling around.  We moved in here in October of 1967.  Let's see, I was 28 so you were 18 so maybe you hadn't started your travels  yet?

You really should get to it and write your adventures down, you had such an interesting life and it should be documented

Haha I have actually started ..... every so often I write more but I have to be in the mood.
When I was 18 Linda I left home and went to Scotland to work.... that was the beginning of my travels.  From there I went to Newquay in the South of England to the Surfing capital of England with an Aussie chief life guard :) After that to Scotland again and Newquay then to Holland,  Switzerland, Germany and Spain where I worked but travelled through Italy, Islands of Sardinia, Corfu, then Greece, Spain,  North Africa  and finally to America. I was thinking last night when I could not sleep ... that we did pay for accommodation in Montreal and Quebec :)  We had friend in Toronto, Irish Angela but we were not impressed with Toronto or Montreal just  big cities but Quebec was lovely:)  We were in America July 30th to 29th October when we flew back to Glasgow. If I had known you bac then Linda we would have come to visit but we did not know anybody in the middle of America and we could not afford to go to the West coast.

WOW, I don't think  you have ever told us about your travels in quite this way, where you list the countries and SO MANY countries.  Was this 1967, I can't remember if you are 60 or 61 right now.  If this is right, and it was 1967 you could have come and helped us move into this house, we did that on October 5, 1967. 
You do need to write a book and I'm glad you have started it.  Wish we had our little "writing emoticon". 📚✏

Hahaha Linda.... it is the chemo talking ! You do know I am 71, yes 10 years younger than you and 8 years older than Darien  Actually I think  this was a typo on your behalf Linda so you are excused  :D
I would have been 17 1/2 when I first left home so 1966 then we went to America in 1972 or was it 1971 ??????????????  Help !

You would have gone to America in 1971 surely as you married John in 1973 :)

No, it wasn't a typo, trust me I was trying to figure it out.  Oh my, I've felt just HORRIBLE today.  I just crawled out of my  hole to check the email and see what you girls have written.  If you were here in 1971 it was the year when Tom was born, June 12th.

Oh no Darien, I don't feel obligated to be here, I want to be here and it's a treat for me to be able to come here.  I feel more normal when I'm sitting here typing to you girls.  I really didn't think I would be today but here I am.
