Description : Our dream was to live for a year in Europe. That could be every baby boomer’s dream. In pursuing this odyssey, and traveling through Italy, France, Spain and the Netherlands, Lisa and I found that we had accidentially traced the history of Western art from city to city, artist to artist, genre to genre. We had traveled from ancient Rome to the Middle Ages and on to the Gothic churches, the Renaissance, the Baroque, Neoclassicism, Impressionism, Cubism and Surrealism. We followed great writers through their cafés and restaurants. And along the way, we found ourselves, and rediscovered each other, through art, philosophy and literature. We became immersed in the culture, food and people of each country, and in doing so, we created a guide for your journey. We chronicled our breakthroughs and epiphanies as well as our screw-ups and humorous mistakes so you can take advantage of what we learned.
