HI, Baldworth!! I have looked at the pictures, and I really appreciate your sharing them- the group shots waiting for transportation are all too familiar to me!

I have been contemplating a February break trip to Spain, and seeing Barcelona and Madrid has really helped! Thanks!!

Thanks to the girls, too- it really does look like you had a wonderful trip, bumps in the road and all.

I looked at the pictures from Venice, Rome, Paris, Madrid and Barcelona and the thing that comes through to me the most is that these kids were really having fun.

I was fascinated by your observations of the people with whom you traveled. Sounds like the world aboard the bus was as fascinating as the world outside.

I get the feeling you would happily stand in Hyde Park's Speakers Corner on a box and proclaim the virtues of seat rotation on bus tours.....

I think we must have met the sister of the manager of the Hotel Crystal at a BandB once. I should have photocopied the bandb's rule list. It included, I am not making this up, the instruction to eat the breakfast provided. When I saw that, I wondered if I'd find a dungeon in the basement....

Hi there baldworth, I love your photos..and the kids look like fun although obviously you had a "few" problem kids!! I just had a chance to finally enjoy your photos this morning.
Thanks for sharing your trip with us. You have more stamina than I do, lol!
Have a good school year.

"problem kids?" I'd say the daughter/college student of the leader behaved worse than the 'prom queen' baldworth complains so much about. The whole group sounds totally dysfunctional. Interesting that, aside from one person's protest about allowing teenagers to drink, no one has a problem with that. did the kids' parents know they'd be allowed to drink? Just asking, it seems incredible to me, but i'm not a parent.

2tired2night - Did you actually read any of what I wrote? My daughter was a great help and the reason we were able to find our way home in Rome as well as other times. She overdid one night and was a great help otherwise. You might consider rereading or rethinking. Besides, I never even mentioned a promqueen only a drama queen who wanted to make everything about her and create issues where there were none. I was there and you don't know what you are talking about.

By the way, thanks for all the other comments. Crefloors, LoveItaly, Katya NY thanks and I am glad you enjoyed the pics and story. I didn't mean to ignore your responses. The last one just flew all over me.

Baldworth,

Maybe 2tired2night is too tired tonight to comprehend the many details of your great story.

Archaic drinking-age laws in one country don't necessarily have any real meaning in other countries.
