Hi Connie
We are almost neighbors-looking forward to meeting you and talking about Italy. I have taken 5 Elder Hostel (nor Roads Scholar) trips there!

Connie Basinski Feb 10, 2015 at 06:02 PM

Hi, I am taking my first Roads Scholar trip - traveling with my cousin who has taken and loved the trips she has taken with Roads Scholar. I recently spent month in Italy - great trip, loved the history and people. I am looking forward to exploring the Mississippi and traveling on the Steamboat up and down the river. Interested in meeting all of you. Have safe trip to Louisiana
