Oh, What a Wonderful Gift Your Husband has given you!!

I'd like to go to Sweden and Austria.
Family in Sweden and my grgma came here
from Vienna.

Norway looks like a beautiful place to
visit too.

I also would like to visit a place that I do not know where it is but I have a B&W photograph of it and the buildings are from someplace in the world. I hope to find out where this place is.

Enjoy your trip!!

God Bless You and Yours!!!
