We had arrived in Europe knowing only Atum – from 30 years ago. However, attending Atum’s conference in Assisi allowed us to meet many other wonderful people. (He only attracts wonderful people). We had left room in our itinerary to be open to an invitation from anyone at the conference that might not live too far from our planned route (Italy, Spain, France, Scotland, Ireland. We received four invitations and three of them worked into our schedule. We were so happy! However none were one our planned route as the invitations came from Switzerland and Germany. So what? We changed our route and started out in Switzerland.
