(Not-So-) Wordless Wednesday: Mom & Sister Jean Marie in Europe, Summer 1977

Twenty-four years after her first trip to Europe, my mother, Geraldine Margaret Guokas Pape, got to go back, with the Foreign Study League.  Her sister, my aunt Sister Jean Marie (Jo Ann) Guokas, had served as a counselor with the program for a number of years (responsible for eight high school students spending the summer in Europe).  When she became an administrator with the program (responsible for the whole traveling group), she recruited my mother as a counselor in the summer of 1977.  Mom was thrilled to have the opportunity to go back to Europe.

In the photo below, Sister Jean Marie and Mom are at the very front of this train to tour the Salzbergwerk Berchtesgaden, the Salt Mine near Berchtesgaden, Germany.
