My Journey To America: July 25, 1914

Exactly 100 years ago today, my 18 year old grandfather, Kurt William Leucht, wrote the following entry into his journal:

 I got up according to German time at 8:30am.  The food tasted good again.  It was the most beautiful weather the whole day and the sea was quiet.  In the evening, there was hearty dancing.  We had gone half way [across the ocean].  I went to bed at 1:00am [Germany time].

You can read my grandfather’s entire journal by clicking below.  It’s quite interesting!  Of course, I’m biased!   🙂

Thanks for your interest!
