Time passed, and I did the usual Southern California road trips to the Northern California Wine Country, San Diego, Mammoth, and Las Vegas. But I couldn't afford the time or money needed to travel farther. Then came Freddie Laker and his affordable plane fares. At the same time, my ex and I parted ways, sold our house, and I had some cash. I spent three months traveling through England and Scotland (two months of which was spent in London), getting as far north as the Orkney Islands.

Then I started dating my husband, K. W. Looking back, I didn't get married; I hooked up with a co-conspirator. He also loves to travel — and not those fast arranged tours. Together we have spent time in France, Spain, Mallorca, Hungary, Austria, Switzerland, the Italian Alps, and have lived in a number of wonderful U.S. cities and in Bath, England, and now in Ecuador. We have a two-month trip planned for the fall: Barcelona, Vienna, Prague, Dresden, and Nantes. Then over to the U.K. to visit friends and see a lot of ballet, opera, theater, and symphony. Italy, Romania, Holland, Colombia, Uruguay, Chile, Russia, and Taiwan are on the bucket list. So many places, so little time.

So, is it worth the money, hassle, and time? You bet.
