My wife and I are both retired teachers with over 30 years in each. My wife was elementary and I was middle school. We taught in mountain schools and loved all our years of teaching. Both being retired allows us lots of time to travel and we take big trips each year. Last year we did New Zealand and Australia with Road Scholar and LOVED the trip. This year we are staying "local" with this trip. We're looking forward to it. Next year we're doing a 23 day river cruise with Viking Cruises from Bucharest to Amsterdam in May.

I am so excited to be doing this trip! Have wanted to do it for 2 years, and have recently retired, so now I have the time.

Did you end up doing this trip? If so. would you recommend it? Also. I am considering doing it as a single-were there singles on your trip? Thanks for any info.
