~Carmen Whenever we visit a new place, Joe and I like to spend our first day walking around.  It gives us an overview of the city layout and helps us know where we want to concentrate our time.  Our last trip to Greece wasn’t our first time in Athens, but it was the first time......

~ Carmen I must admit, I love a gray, rainy day.  However when I’m touring a city, rain is not my friend.  Although we had already experienced several episodes of rain on our tour of Bavaria, the weather we had in Heidelberg was by far the worst.  We could have stayed in our hotel and......

Stop 1- Vienna, Austria (read more) Stop 2- Salzburg, Austria Stop 3- Dachau Concentration......
~ Carmen Vienna, “The Imperial City”,  “City of Dreams”, and “City of Music” is about as beautiful as any city can hope to be.  Often viewed as a perfect place for romance, it can also be a delight for families, too.  Joe and I recently accompanied middle school students and their families on a tour......
