In 82,  with ‘Las Palabras De Mar’,

And in 97, Puff Daddy And The Family, took

And in 2003, ‘Train On The Track’,

gave Kelly Rowland, a chart hit too.

 

‘Arrivederci Darling’ sang Anne Shelton,

From Uk/Italian vocal group – Rococo,

in 89, came ‘Italo House Mix’

and in 2002,  by The Pet Shop Boys was

‘Home And Dry’ – to close this Latin fix.

 

A journey is always worth the effort,

as ‘Travel’ broadens the mind,

by creating timeless memories,

of a very special kind.

 

So pack a suitcase with excitement,

and let your feet pick up pace,

as the warmth of people embrace you –

for this world is a wonderful place.
