This site contains a transcription of a travel journal I kept during our "Best of Europe" tour. All text and photographs (excluding the group shot above, and any other attributed contributions) are copyright 1998 by Brigid Hom-Schnapp and Russell Schnapp.
Please note: The primary goal of this web site is to help remind Brig and I of the various events, good times, and good company we enjoyed on this trip. It isn't a publishable travel journal. It will be darned boring reading for most of you. You are welcome to peek over our shoulders at it -- heck, spend as much time here as you like! Just don't complain that I'm getting into nit-picky, boring detail. I don't have the time or inclination to do the writing, re-writing, and just general hard work that goes into making for interesting reading. I've done it before, mostly for technical books and articles. It takes a lot of time and effort. Just ask Gene Openshaw!
