Guess what, we don't want to pay for your european vacation. If you really want to raise money for
charity then you could give them more money by forgoing the vacation and just cutting them a check
for the money you would have spent of the trip. I suspect that you are not going to do that though.
If you really are hell bent on this excursion I would invest in some really good maps and some
language lessons. Out in the boondocks the natives do not speak English. And that is just as true in
Italy as in Russia.
