Driving...and Dreaming
Welcome New Subscribers! 
I have a lot of driving to do this week. I have a couple of business trips to make that will probably put close to 1500 miles on my car by the end of the week.  My daughter is riding with for one of the trips (and sharing the driving) so we had plenty of time to chat. 
Driving through too much road construction, we talked about advances made with roads and autos. In Minnesota, some roads are made with crushed granite - they sparkle in the sun.  In Indiana, the crews are experimanting with slag - the stone-like impurities discarded from the steel mills in our state.  We both love the solar road panels that we've seen on the internet and hope they catch on someday.
We talked about driverless cars.  Can you even imagine driving - actually, just riding - in one?  I would love to be able to knit while my car drove me where  wanted to go.  It would be like private-public transportation.  
It's intereting to think about where we were even twenty years ago and then to imagine where we could be twenty years in the future. There are so many possibilities.  If you are a dreamer, never let anyone take away your dreams.  Instead, share your dreams with others. You never know where they could lead.
I hope you enjoy reading the posts this week. If you do, share the newsletter with your family and friends! If you are reading your friend's newsletter, you can sign up for your own here.

More World War II Sites in Europe

My husband and I participated in an organized tour that visited notable European sites from WWII.  Previously, I wrote about the Beaches of Normandy and areas in northern France.  When our tour left the Normandy beaches, we visited more of France, then Luxembourg, Belgium, and Germany, so that is what I’ve included in today’s post.

If you join a similar tour, be sure you familiarize yourself with the main parts of the war – generally the tour will follow areas according to the map, rather than the chronology of events.  If any of your relatives served in WWII, you may want to find out...

Passports, Visas, and Travelng Abroad

Traveling abroad requires a bit more preparation than traveling within the United States.  One of the most important differences, is that you will need a passport or passport card and maybe a visa.  Different countries have different requirements.  The best place to get information is the United States Department of State.

If you are traveling to Canada, Mexico, or the Caribbean, you may be able to get by with a passport card which is less expensive than a regular passport.  Presently, the cost is $30.  However, the card can only be used...
