We are two fools in love, and this is our new blog. Frank just retired as a rocket scientist from NASA. Christy just finished up treatment for breast cancer and got the green light from her doctors to travel, while finishing up rest and recovery. After these two big life events, we decided there is no time like the present and are leaving our “normal” lives and running away to Europe for a year.
Frank’s family hails from Sicily – his parents emigrated from there, came through Ellis Island, and settled in Brooklyn. We will spend a few months in Sicily getting back to his roots (along with other places around the Mediterranean).
Christy has been living on a boat for the last 10 years in Annapolis, Maryland, where she met Frank, and is ready for another adventure they can take together. She is lucky to have a very progressive law firm, so she will continue to work a reduced schedule while on the road. She specializes in all aspects of HIPAA (believe it or not, that actually is a specialty).
The boats are hauled out of the water for winter storage, the housesitter has moved in, and we are off! Please join us on our adventure!
Next stop: NYC to board the Queen Mary 2 for England!
