We had been given free tickets from my slowtravel friends Kathy and Charley Wood (European Experiences). They lead small group tours to France, Italy, and England.
and our slowtravel friend Shannon Essa owner and operator of
Grapehops Tours (small group tours to Croatia, Italy, Slovenia, Spain).
These three lead wonderful small group tours. I highly recommend taking a trip with any of them for a great time and fun travel experiences.
We had a fun time wandering around the big convention center and talking to different vendors about many travel opportunities.
We stopped to listen to Rick Steves talk about travel.
We had fun at the channel 4 booth. Here we are as the new judges on "TheVoice".
Met this nice channel 4 newsman Michael Brownlee
