Mark and his charming wife, Pam Dawber, plan to take a trip across Europe to celebrate their 32nd wedding anniversary.  The lovebirds plan to visit Italy, France, Germany, and several other countries.

For Mark and Pam, the main purpose of this European getaway is to spend time together and to celebrate their anniversary far from the public eyes. Besides, it’s a great opportunity for Harmon to have some rest after decades of TV drama that includes feuds with his NCIS co-stars.

A source close to the family says:

A lot of people look up to Pam and Mark as the perfect couple, but Mark wants to put the spark back in the marriage with this trip. They put family first, and take time for themselves!

The CBS drama successfully runs on TV for 16 seasons. Mark Harmon, who plays one of the main characters, explained that his little break doesn’t mean he won’t return to NCIS at all.  Fans will reportedly see the actor in the next season if there is one.
