Our daughter has been to Europe twice. Once in high
school as an exchange student and once in university
for her "immersion" session in the German language. There
was no silver spoon, she worked to make it happen.
At a time when she is breaching the boundary of middle
age, at a point in middle-class life when the dream is
finding an affordable, comfy sofa, she found an
opportunity to tour the Land of the Rising Sun.
More of Heather's excellent adventure to come, but
here are some of the first footfall images.
