Hello Fellow Travelers,
We are very excited about our visit to Spain! Ashley and I will be in Barcelona for a few days prior to the ship's departure; arriving in Seville in late afternoon. Looking forward to meeting with the group!

Our July 15 trip to Spain is fast approaching. Simon and I are both excited. We'll be flying out of Chicago on the second leg of our trip. I understand quite a few of our fellow travelers will be on that flight. I'm interested in hearing from others going to Spain and those who will be on the long flight with us.

We are looking forward to meeting you, Nancy and Simon.

I am also traveling during that time. I will be accompanied by my grandson, Simon, who is 15. He is also very friendly. This will be his first overseas trip.

I'm thinking of signing up for one of the July trips for 2015, with 15 year old grandson who will have just turned 16 at the time of the trip. He's been watching this trip for 3 years and now may find himself at the outer age limits. Any others near his age going this year?

My 12 yr. old grandaughter, Raegan, & I are booked for the July 30th trip. On July 31st, we will arrive in Madrid via American Airlines, flight 36 & will have an 8 hr. & 35 min. stopover. Thinking of possibly heading out to see the Royal Palace. Anyone else interested?

Hi Gerry - looking forward to meeting you. I'm sure Nattie will have a wonderful experience on her first Road Scholar trip. Collyn has loved every one of hers. This is her first international one and the first by boat, so she's very excited.
The kids always bond very quickly which is another nice thing
about Road Scholar.

Barbara, I'm from Augusta and am thinking about doing this trip with my 14 year next year. I would love to hear about your trip. Could you email me at rbustos@gru.edu? Then maybe we could talk by phone or in person.
