Coming soon! A travel adventure memoir by Tom & Gabriela Vetter
A funny, bittersweet tale of an aging couple on their last tour of Europe together, as she is overshadowed by Alzheimer’s, and he struggles to fulfill her bucket-list dreams while she can still enjoy them.
When young, Gabriela and I dreamed of travels abroad together. She loved to travel, but never got all she wished. I did too much, to places I had no desire to go, and too often without her.
It was our joy to travel together, and we did so as we could. Our long-range plan for more would come once retirement made it possible. But just before I could retire, Gabriela began her descent into Alzheimer’s.
In a desperate attempt to fulfill her life-long wish to tour Tuscany while she could enjoy it, I arranged a last grand tour: A Mediterranean cruise. Ports-of-call in Spain, France, Tuscany, Sicily, and Venice. Train travel across Italy to see Cortona and Rome. And a stay in London on the return home.
Our last foreign adventure together. Explorations, trials and wonders shared, and the great joy they all brought Gabriela. Through them, I share my love and admiration of her.
