    Yes, we are, Mary Alice. It’s the first time for us. Janice has been all over Europe, but Gerry and I have been to London and Paris only. How about you guys?

    Rob and I have done a lot of traveling, but it’s time to take our sons abroad. This might sound lame– I’d like to do a tour because someone else can do all the coordinating.

    Mary Alice, that’s what we’re doing. A tour is a cost saver, and sightseeing is maximum. The pace is strenuous, but we want that. It’s through http://www.trafalgar.com, and we’ll be there for 11 days. Gerry does not want to drive, and we’ll be going around in a luxury air-conditioned coach with reclining seats and a washroom onboard.
