"We did the Holland Untour in June and I loved this country. People asked me why I wanted to go there before I left and now I say...why not? Beautiful country and with the rail pass travel is so easy."

"We have done the Provence Untour and totally loved that area. We stayed in Pernes Les Fontaine and had a car. Not overly expensive if you don't shop too much!"

Well, I could really beat this one! The funniest thing happened when I did Tuscany (not with Untours) with 5 female friends. We got on a wrong train from Rome to Arezzo. We ended up in Naples and there were no other trains out that night. The workers took pity on us and put us in a room with them for the night in the train station. They then woke us early the next morning and escorted us to our correct train. We felt pretty stupid but also very grateful

Kathy,
Where in Pernes Les Fontaine did you stay in Provence? We stayed at the Gamet and thought the hosts, Cathy and Jacques were super. She was delightful and he was very friendly and helpful during our stay.

That was not the same place. Our place was the one with a pool and it was adjacent to the owners home. Provence was fun, wasn't it?

I did that wrong and added my comment to my page rather then your page. Check out my page comments. Geez, I guess it's time to take a break.

Hi Kathy....thinking about Leiden for late next summer or early Fall. Not sure if there is enough to keep us busy for 2 weeks. Any thoughts you have would be appreciated. Am sure you have done your homework and know of many trips. We spent a couple of days in Amsterdam a couple of years ago and enjoyed immensely. Know we would enjoy returning there.

Hi Kathy...I trust you all got home safely....and had a wonderful rest of the week in Leiden....we loved our hotel in Brussels and a small restaurant that we ate at twice for dinner....rec. by the hotel and around the corner...but Brussels was a bit crowded, loud and touristy for us. We did the upper town on Friday and it was much nicer...museums, churches, palaces...much more civilized and not many tourists. I'm going through all my photos (1000) and triplog, rewriting and trying to pare down the photos...it's fun to relive the trip. Wish we were in Holland for the big game tomorrow but we will be watching it! All those crazy orange people. It was fun being there with you all....
