Now that Adrian has reached 6o (see Adrian’s Profile), he would like to take time out to explore what he will do with the next stage of his life. He would like the next decade to be the best so far in his life. So he wants to take time out to reflect on where he is at and how he would like to steer the next part of his life.
So for Adrian this is both a journey through Europe and a spiritual journey as well. Its Adrian own version of “Eat Pray Love” ( book by Elizabeth Gilbert).
Adrian has always wanted to learn more about Europe and particularly its two largest economies which are Germany & France. As travel by water was the first efficient way of transporting goods, many European cities are built on rivers or canals. Thus, its a ideal way to explore a city as you can often berth a boat in the centre and explore the city at your leisure from you own temporary home.
Nuala is taking the trip because she has a great sense of adventure and believes that life is for living and we all should do things when we are young enough and able to do them. And of course as Adrian was very keen to do this trip she wants to support him as well!!
