About the Book

\Travel Becomes Us is the memoir of two very naive and inexperienced nuns who make a journey to Israel and Europe in 1977. Luggage weighs them down and they can not even read the menus; however, they still push on with dauntless enthusiasm. Real difficulties occur when stones are thrown at them in Israel and a conductor tosses them off a street car in Italy. Then outside a deserted lonely train station at one in the morning, they are almost abducted and robbed, only to be saved by their guide book! This is a book to make you laugh at their blunders and decide travel is truly the ultimate learning experience!

About the Author

After retiring from teaching, Lucille Hintze began her writing career with Lucille’s Harvest and now continues with Travel Becomes Us.  This latest book is a memoir of the very first time she and a friend had ever taken a trip outside of the United States.  She credits this experiencing of different lands and their cultures as an aid in the understanding of the uniqueness of other nations.  Travel, she claims, helps us become  more mature citizens of our one global world.  Lucille Hintze is a graduate of Stanford University and San Francisco Theological and is a Sister of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Family.  She lives in Mission San Jose, California.
