In 1973, Toni and Ria Harting spent a small inheritance on three weeks enjoying 10 three-star restaurants in France.

“My mother was as adventurous as I am. She said to me, just before she died, ‘I don’t want you to put it in the bank. Use it for something nice…something that you enjoy.’ So I thought, ‘I enjoy France, I enjoy food, I enjoy travel, and I enjoy my wife.’”
