1972: Duncan & Lisa's Half-Year, Mediterranean Honeymoon

After our Thanksgiving 1971 wedding, in January we went to Europe for our honeymoon -- Duncan's 3rd time to Europe and Lisa's 2nd.  This time it was for 5 months, and it was so lovely to be back again. 

We were with 2000 other young Americans and Europeans taking the Transcendental Meditation Teacher-Training Course.  The 1st half of our time was on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, Spain, and the 2nd half in the Italian hilltown of Fiuggi -- in the mountains 50 miles southeast of Rome.

We jokingly refer to this time as our half-year Mediterranean honeymoon with 2000 other people.

Our road trip to get to NYC's airport was an event in itself:  From the midwest we travelled in VW bus with occupants totalling 8 people + 1 dog + everyone's luggage for a half-year.  In New York, we left the bus and dog with friends, and off we flew to the Mediterranean.
