Europe/Africa 1981 The Agony & the Ecstasy ::mX::

In 1981-82 I spent 6 months in a van traveling around europe . Back then that six months cost me 1500.00 and that might have included air fare. I came back with wooden shoes and $9. A trip to Egypt and a sail around Greece were the only times we left the VAN! (exclamation point), as we called it, behind.

So many unbelievable stories :
