At a 2014 estate sale in Michigan was foundĀ a little blue leather Travels Abroad diary written by a then-24-year-old American woman.

Judy B graduated from college, left her family and sweetheart behind, and set off for a few months of traveling through Europe with a student tour group and leader. While brief, the entries provide a glimpse into the daily life of an American girl in Europe during the summer of 1958.
