A little background, my name is Fanchon and I am a wife and mother of 2 wonderful children. This July we are going to Germany. My husband and children have never travel to Europe and I am looking forward to sharing this wonderful country with them . My father was born in Germany and I myself have been twice as an US Army brat. I am hoping to help connect my children with their heritage and have them visit the city my father was born in and where and spent the first 10 years of his life. We have already paid for our hotel and flight back in February of this year. I had hope to have all the money we need to spend for this trip saved up by now but of course the best laid plans have a way of falling apart.. If it could go wrong it did and we had to use money we had planned to save. Now it looks like we won't have enough to spend on food or visiting different historical sights that we had planned to visit. We are not looking to break the bank just to make ends meet while we are there and to allow us to tour the cities as much as possible. Any help we can get is welcomed and truly appreciated.
