Do it. do it, do it. Sooner (younger) the better. One of the best experiences in life is visiting relatives from your family's place of origin. I don't think I have any close German relatives left, but my son and I both felt like Munich was our long lost home. Next trip I'd like to look up my relatives in the Netherlands.

Driving your own car gives you a feeling of belonging to a place. You do the simple, everyday things, like stopping to help push someone's stuck car, or pulling into a grocery store for some snacks. It's a wonderful freedom.
