Ireland, England, & Scotland 2011

a trip by Michele & David Buher
From: August 20th 2011
Until: September 14th 2011

About a year ago, my nephew announced he was getting married -- in Ireland! Plans were set in motion and a trip was born. This trip also coincides with our 30th Wedding Anniversary on August 22nd. The name of our blog, Two of Us, comes from the song we chose for our first dance -- Two of Us by Supertramp. The words are as meaningful today as when we first heard them. They resonate with all travelers -- whether they be travelers in the lifelong journey of marriage or travelers of the world. We are all just "specks of sand". The world is a stranger to all. It brings wonderful surprises, uncertain times, challenges, and opportunities -- the foundation on which all dreams are built (and sometimes destroyed). Journeys, whether across a continent or down the road of life are where we change and grow. We are faced with exciting and sometimes difficult questions -- "Where do we go?", "What will we discover?" No matter the answer, a fundamental truth shines through -- a journey is always better when shared. David and I have journeyed together for 30 years, and God willing or whatever Universal Being chooses to care, we will continue to do so for many more. This blog is our invitation to you to share in our journey.

Our Song -- "Two of Us" by Supertramp

Look at me I'm a speck of sand
And I'm building dreams in a stranger's land
Tell me why do I care
Tell me why do I care

Every time that I'm feeling down
Oh they pick me up and they spin me round
Tell me where do we go
Tell me where do we go from here

What are we gonna find out (find out)
What are we gonna find out (find out)
In the wilderness, that this loneliness brings
Just as long as there's two of us
Just as long as there's two of us
I'll carry on
Won't you hold me

When is man gonna find out (find out)
When are we gonna find out (find out)
What the universe is just waiting to hear
Just as long as there's two of us
Just as long as there's two of us
Just as long as there's two of us
We'll carry on
