Hello to Travelzine members,

I became aware of your website thru Graciela of Miami. I just turned 50, am married with 2children, a son in college and a daughter who lives and works in NYC. My husband owns a mens clothing store and I worked as a respiratory therapist for 25 years. I quit 2 years ago, healthcare is just too exhausting to do anymore. Yep, I'm a burnout! NYC is my favorite place to visit, and that was before my daughter moved there. In the last 4 years we've travelled to Italy, Paris, London, Zurich, Turkey and Israel twice.

We don't like organized tours, but since we can't leave for more then 2 weeks at a time, I really like to plan carefully, so I can take full advantage of the countries we visit. The Internet has been great for this. It's nice to have another resource. Travel books can help me only so much.

We're going to Spain in October and have nailed down our intinerary as much as possible, so I'll let you know how it goes. Happy travels to all of you,

Mary Covitz Overland Park, Kansas
