The Group

Welcome to my web page!

What follows are my journal entries made during a “Best of Europe” tour with Rick Steves’ Europe Through the Back Door, a company outside of Seattle that specializes in discovering the hidden treasures often missed in commercial travel.  Having only been slightly edited for context and grammar, these pages represent the best way I know of to convey the complete experience of such a trip with the fewest frills.  Along with the prose are some of the pictures I took.  For a more in-depth web site experience, please see my site for the 2nd Europe trip I went on at http://www.besttravelbarcelona.com/Welcome.htm.

I have also made a video of this adventure, which has far more pictures and is a more sentimental journey (and requires less reading).  A small sample of the video at low resolution is available below.  Click on the film frame if you have a fast connection.

For more information relating to Rick Steves tours, see http://www.ricksteves.com/tours/home.htm.  By the way, this was the best vacation I have ever taken in my life.
