Let's discuss our experiences with travel and culture.
Russ, It is exciting to me that you have linked two topics that are dearest to my heart, Notre Dame and Slovakia. I will become a member of Notre Dame's 50 year club this June, having received my degee in 1960. I,m also 100% Slovak with some of my ancestors coming from Francovce and Giraltovce just east of Presov. I will look forward to following your blog as we go forward.Dennis J Gaydos
Amazing coincidence, Dennis! I graduated in '91 after several years in the army. Had I graduated on track, it would have been in '84. My connection to Slovakia is two-fold. During my time in the military, I trained as a Czech linguist (Warsaw Pact days). In my current job, I was sent to Presov in '06 to train the Slovak military. How the world has changed in 20 years!!!
