THANKS TO AA, my wife and I were able to enjoy a sober world journey. We left San Francisco one year and nine months ago, with a copy of the AA World Directory, Part II. Before starting on our trip, I had viewed the directory with a skeptical eye, only half-believing that AA really existed in so many of our earth's countries. The directory proved to be the most important item carried on our trip. We made AA contact almost everywhere we visited in Asia and Europe.
