"Smoky Goes to Europe: A Travel Tale of a Marriage" is the humorous story of a pet black bear who accompanies his human parents on a 17-day trip to Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Italy. Besides staying with family living in Bavaria; the author and his wife take Smoky to explore medieval towns along Germany's Romantic Road; stroll Mozart's Salzburg; hike the Swiss Alps, discover a fairytale castle in Bavaria; renew wedding vows in a historic Italian church; and walk enough hills, steps, and streets to make the reader collapse from exhaustion. This story weaves through the history of European countries, provinces, cities, and towns, while embracing the cultures, languages, and incredible scenery of Europe in the spring. Amid the travel tales is the story of the close-knit relationship of a couple who married for the first time later in life and have not spent a single day of that marriage apart.
