Richard has returned from his four-and-a-half month journey through Europe, and it is wonderful to see him again after so long.
He got in yesterday on a flight from Amsterdam and looks great. His trip seems to have been a fabulous, enriching experience and a real opportunity for personal growth. He has made some new friends, learned some things about himself, and collected some happy memories that will last a lifetime. As a Dad, of course, I’m also proud that he organized the whole trip himself, after saving for more than a year to make it possible.
I will miss reading his blog postings about his adventures in some exotic European location, however. It has been fun to vicariously experience his grand tour.
