Self proclaimed artist, Thomas A Curran had never been to Europe, ever, in all his fifty six years. So this trip was groundbreaking in many ways for Mr. Curran.

Since childhood, I had never really spent so much concentrated time with my brothers Frank and Pat. So this was the most perfect venue to do that.

My dear friend Karl came along, and indeed was the inspiration for Tom to take the European plunge. Karl said over coffee one morning, “how many chances will you have to travel with your brothers and friends?” and then followed up with “if you go, I will go too”.

Steve and Phil, while I knew both for years, yet never really had spent time with them, just the occasional party or cup of coffee. This trip was an immersion in friendship and adventure. I came away knowing everyone better, and knowing myself better as well.

Thanks, Tom
