15 years ago...
We didn't have enough cash to throw a fancy wedding.
But we did have enough, we calculated, to throw a really
great honeymoon. With the help of our friends and family,
we got married for a few hundred dollars at our summer cabin.
Then we took the money and ran, to Europe, where I had never
been and Jen only for a few days once, in Paris. Four days
after our vows, we landed in London, with two thick travel
guides, three-month rail passes, and a money belt full of
travelers cheques. We had return tickets out of Paris three
months later ... but we had no itinerary for any of the 90
days until then.
