ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.

ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

My wife, Joyce and I (Tom) are enrolled (leaving Sept 10). We live in southern CT and will fly from JFK.

We are doing a lot of traveling before meeting the program in Ankara. We arrive in ankara the 17th in the evening and are meeting our son Paul there. We took an extra night in the hotel so perhaps we will see you there during the day.

My husband Phil and I are enrolled. We live in southern California.

Joyce, I got a typhoid shot and had already gotten the Hepititas shots years before, but I don't think you have to worry about anything. I think only one member of our group got stomach trouble.


Joyce Thompson Jul 01, 2014 at 02:19 PM

Hi! Anybody out there who's going on the trip September 10? I'm curious as to whether people are getting any inoculations. I doubt that we need them. The CDC is as vague about it as Road Scholars.
Robert Hunt Jul 01, 2014 at 02:30 PM

Hi, Joyce. I was on the trip in May. Fantastic. I don't think you have to worry about inoculations. We drank bottled water (usually supplied by the tour) for the most part. I think you'll be fine.


Nancy Bleakley May 16, 2014 at 11:50 PM

I'm currently on the trip and having a wonderful time, but want to emphasize that if you are a washcloth user. You should bring one in a plastic zip lock bag. No hotels so far have had them. Also don't forget good walking shoes, a cane if you just maybe might need it and sunscreen and hat.


Judy Tulchin Apr 23, 2014 at 07:25 PM

I am booked on From Legends to History, May 7th, flying out of Boston on Lufthansa. My friends, Tom and Janet Clegg with also be on that flight. Anyone else?
Also I am in need of a roommate for the hotels.

Will you be going through Munich? I will arrive in Munich at 9:50 am. I have paid for a single but would consider sharing if RS will refund the difference. However, it may be too late to make changes. Please discuss this with RS and let me know if they will allow it.
