The Proposal

About the Trip

I took Christina to Europe and proposed in Assisi. I had her plane ticket and her passport. So, she had no choice but to say yes. I made sure she plenty of wine that night too – mostly for me. She said yes!
I’ll have much more to say about this trip as it was quite exciting. There was the time I witnessed a dry run for a terrorist attack (the train bombing of 2004) and the time I dialed an Iraqi number by mistake and immediately received a callback from a stern US man asking questions. So many memories.
