Next month, I will be traveling to Switzerland to hike the Swiss alps, see Reichenbach Falls, the Lion monument in Lucern, and other assorted areas of interest. Since I am flying to London (so I can visit my British friends), I will also take my first trip through the chunnel, renting a car in Paris, and driving down to Mount Blanc and later over the border into Switzerland. Hopefully I will remember how to drive a manual transmission!
I also did something risky - I invited a young wargamer to accompany me on my travels, in large part because he speaks French, and my Russian will be useless on this trip. But I also liked the idea of giving someone an opportunity to see part of the world.
Anyway, I wanted to share and to say - don't let age get you down. Embrace it and do something wild. I plan to!
RIP Dark Wolf, you will be missed my friend._Nagash_ wrote:

Switzerland was awesome. I'd return to Switzerland in a heartbeat, even though it is an expensive place.
I did similar to finish university up, I went on a year-long study-abroad. I was driven around Paris once, that place is super-scary. I have only been able to 'visit' it once for a few hours but even then I did so with a good feeling; it was after a few well-needed drinks on a hot May day exactly 2 yrs ago yesterday. I was only able to get to within sight of Mont Blanc, but I did enjoy the view. My favorite pictures are of the time in those mountains. Did you get a chance to take many pictures of all that you saw and did?
I do have a bunch of photos, I bought a fancy camera for the trip
hundreds of photos!
