What Untours means to me

This is a first attempt for me at writing for all to see. Pretty scary and I'm sure it will sound like a 4th grade composition! Have to write though as I'm tired of seeing on the screen "you haven't written your blog yet"

Of course it's all about travel which has been a passion for me since I was little girl and was allowed to take the train alone several times from Bridgeport, CT to Stamford, CT. And I was only 8 years old! Years later there would be the Greyhound bus trip from MA to…

Hi Shirley! Welcome to the Untours Cafe. One of my favorite activities when traveling is also getting lost. Sometimes it's because I have a poor sense of direction (thank goodness I live in Philadelphia where the streets are laid out in a grid), but other times getting lost just means not having planned out somewhere specific as a destination. Some of the most interesting experiences are while wandering around.

Good to see you at the Cafe. Switzerland is our favorite spot in Europe and we hope to come back again and again (only three times so far) - especially after we our "fill" of the "thrill" of driving in Europe!

another person, Ann came to my rescue about writing a trip log and inserting pictures here and there in the trip log. Have fun, its a great site!

Well Shirley, I knew the neighborhood would go to pot sooner or later. I've sent you a pic of me at the 50th reunion by email.

Hey Shirley, good to see you! I need friends! Trying to figure out how to add that "friend tag". It was a treat being in Sachseln with you this visit. Hope it happens again.

Getting lost was a favorite pastime my mother and I had. We would stumble across a beautiful scene or an interesting place while "lost." It was easy to become "found." All I did was head in the general direction from whence we came. A familiar road or place would appear eventually. Those "losts" became some of our fond memories.

I can smell the garlic from here! Did you have a good time at the Garlic Festival? Love Ryder's photos. Good photographer. Bet you have an itch about now to return to CH!
