I really enjoy your blogs as it is a reminder of our visit. We spent a week on our own the last time in Krakow & went to Aushwitz and Birkenau. We went to Warsaw while Obama was there, so all roads were diverted & traffic was at a standstill while we chose to ride the On-Of Bus. We had one day & just had a slight overview. Would love to return. Just booked a trip to Iceland. Leaving in May. 3-5 days on our own at the end renting a car to see the Fjords. Will look into that after Christmas. Always enjoy your blogs.

Another Capital City
Hi Laura, Too bad I wasn't there to join you. I never tire in Krakow. I've been there twice & feel I know it & love it. Did you make it to the Jewish Quarter? We listened to klezmer music after dinner. I was with friends who lived there the first time & then took Dave there the 2nd. We spent a week there & in the surroundings. We both loved Prague. Walked the city for 4 days. You must go to Japan. One of the best trips ever. Spent 2 weeks with OAT & then 10 days on our own (Hiroshima, Himeji Castle & then onto Mount Shosha hiking miles to the shrine, & 7 days in Tokyo). It was a wonderful country with the people kinder than anywhere else we've ever been & no trash anywhere with no trash containers in site (we were told they take trash home to dispose there). Looking into Cuba on our own next summer (possibly leaving from Canada). Love your blogs & it's obvious you spend precious time writing them. Barbara

Thanks for posting1
Thanks Laura... for you very descriptive accounts of your travels. Wish at times I could be there with you but age and health keep me confined to my world in Cambodia.

Response to Endings
Laura, I always enjoy your blogs. Since we've been to Kathmandu, I feel as if we've returned while reading your recent blog. I can relate to it all. I created a travel show on Nepal & it's fascinating how we both saw the same things with different companies as we went with OAT. We'd like to do Iceland, but have been gone for 4 months with our summer get away to Washington & japan 3 days after returning from WA. It will be a year before we consider anything. We would love to join you on your next trip. What is in store for you next? Barbara

Laura, I was in Iceland in January, with the hope of seeing the Northern Lights. No such luck, but I did find the country a pleasure to visit. We learned that there are only around 300,000 people in the country and they entertain 3 million tourists a year. We were charmed by the things they had devised for us to see.

Reading your bogs makes me want to make a similar trip. I saw the big three on a trip in South Africa. Seeing Victoria Falls is on my bucket list and I expect see it in the future. Joe

I have so enjoyed your blog. I'm pretty sure it is the same trip my 3 daughters and I took, so I have forwarded your blogs to them. It takes us all back to 2014 when we were there. Thanks, Laura!

What a trip! And Bill sits alone and cold with all the snow and storms. He will definitely appreciate you when you get home. It is in the mid 70's here today and I am going to plant some flowers. Thanks for the wonderful blogs.Pam from CA

I am reliving my trip through you. When we went we saw 17 big cats and knew how lucky we were-- lion, leapards and cheetahs.

You are right. We saw only 1 leopard on our safari during the Great Migration.
