My husband Bill and I will be attending the May 2014 program. It will be our first Road Scholar trip and we're both looking forward to it.

Hi, I just signed up for the program in March. It's my first Road Scholar Trip and I am very curious. I don't know anybody and I don't know what to expect. Is anybody there who is coming too?

My wife and I very much enjoyed this program last November. We lived for nearly 4 years in Iran and are therefor interested in the Middle East. The speaker were all knowledgeable and spoke well.

I just signed up for the program in February. I found it appealing both because of the interesting topic and because it's short. (Many of the Road Scholar programs are much longer than I'm interested in being gone. With two dogs and a zillion local commitments I just don't like to be out of town very long.)

Is anyone going from Los Angeles to the Nov 6-9 program? I am leaving on Nov 3 to sightsee.
