This was a very FAST pace trip, I could have used a bit slower pace, but I intend to correct this on my next trip. I do intend to do another trip. More laundry services could be added as I found it most necessary in my travels.

Vacation
My husband and I wanted to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary in style. We’ve always wanted to go to Europe, and we are very happy we did! Not only was it in our Bucket List!! We meet a wonderful man that was our Tour Director, (Emile Wiegand Brussels with Trafalgar). While, in Venice he arranged for us to go on our very own gondola ride while being serenaded by local musicians. Quite the experience!!
