My son R has always been on family vacations with us. This year, at age 18 and out of high school, he announced he would not attend our family vacation. So we are thousands of miles away from him and do not have his presence around. Honestly, I think he would’ve hated the museums and early wake up calls on this trip. But I still miss him. We all do. He is part of us 🙂
Update: Have been purchasing a post card in every city, and at night we all sign it for him. Was able to mail the first batch from Ireland, and they said he’ll receive within a week.
