Part of what's kept me away from the microphone lately has been some overseas travel. First was our family T. O. A. L. (Trip of a Lifetime) to Germany & Italy. Then, surprisingly, a return visit to Europe shortly thereafter by just me because of a new assignment at work. Though neither of those trips were about games, I couldn't help getting in SOME shopping and playing while I was over there. This episode is kind of a rambling tale about that, the shops I visited, the games I bought & played, and the surprises of an American gamer visiting another part of the world.
P.S. The name of my kind host at the Dutch game group was Eugene, not Phil. I'm sorry for the mistake!
