    READER´S DIGEST 1973
    Attached is a page I found in
    Readers Digest from 1973, an
    add for IAB with a return fare
    of 867 Swedish crowns - was it
    199 US Dollars in those days?
    At least that is how I
    remember it.

    Who is the pretty girl - is it
    Georgette?

    Midsummer greetings from
    Stockholm with love - Gun

    GUN VIDAL´s NIECE CAROLINE


    SEPTEMBER 2008
    My white IAB Samsonite is regretfully 
    in the attic and not packed to go. 
    I would have LOVED to see you all 
    at reunion in Luxembourg but am 
    unable to come. 
    
    Am attaching a photo of my niece 
    who I assisted applying for a job 
    with Etihad Airways out of 
    The Emirates.
    
    Caroline – now 23 – lives in Abu Dhabi 
    since March this year and I have 
    thoroughly enjoyed listening to her 
    stories from training to getting her 
    wings - - and so it’s in the family – 
    to be an air hostess!
    
    Wishing you lots of fun & good times – 
    and a fond Hello to Leo and Mario 
    in Hotel Italia!
    
    From Stockholm with love - Gun
