We leave next week for 2 weeks in Paris, then TGV to Basel where we board a river cruise ship for 2 weeks on the Moselle and Rhine, ending in Amsterdam. My daughter will be in London at that time, so she and a friend are coming over to meet up with us and show us around Amsterdam, a city where she's been many times though this will be the first for me. (She says she is going to open my eyes, though I'd like to believe that's more a veiled threat than a serious statement of intent.)
Also hoping to fit in a couple of road trips after we return, Willamette Valley for one, and possibly a bit further down the Left Coast as well. If we don't drive down to California, we'll fly down in the fall to visit our niece at UCSD again.
T-Tom: you won't be disappointed by Alaska. Remarkable scenery, friendly people, enjoyable cities and towns. We went exactly a year ago, and my wife says she's ready to go again without hesitation. Enjoy!
