Forwarded by Moderator - Welcome Diane!

My name is Diane Moline. I live in Bellevue, Washington, and teach 3rd and 4th grade gifted students in Edmonds, Washington. Next summer my sister who lives in Illinois and I are traveling to Europe - Rome, Tuscany, Provence, and Paris. While I have extensively traveled in the US and Canada (alone or with my husband), I have not been to Europe. My sister is a former flight attendant who has obviously traveled much, also, but has limited experience in Europe and has never been to Italy. My husband sends me off for three weeks with his blessing, as he is not interested in this kind of extensive travel. If my sister was not going with me, I would do this trip alone. I am enjoying various forums and travel groups, and in my style of learning, have already invested in many books to help me know more about the regions. The best information comes from those fellow travelers who have been there!

I would hope that I could also share my travels upon returning.

Regards, Diane Bellevue, Washington
