in my youth i travelled and lived in europe off and on for almost 2 years. in 1971 my brand-new husband and i hitchhiked around europe (youth hostels, sardines and baguettes and oranges). we returned in 1981 with 2 young children - lived 9 months on the greek island of naxos and then travelled in italy and france. in those days all things seemed possible. we had the courage to just cast off. i don't have money for big travel now (i've made other choices in my life). i still do alot of dreaming though... my 2 new skeins are tuscany and provence - both listed in my etsy shop.
