After a 3-week tour (No. “CE-2”) of Central Europe in May ‘12 with Adventures Abroad (Blaine, WA; 800/665-3998), which was wonderful, my husband, Bob, and I flew from Prague to Venice on Air One ($100 for both tickets) for a 5-day stay.
My wife and I stayed in Brussels at the Floris Arlequin Grand’Place (Rue de la Fourche 17-19, B-1000, Brussels, Belgium; phone 00 32  2 514 16 15, fax 514 22 02), May 7-9, 2012, having booked online.
Whenever I travel, I carry two Canon cameras with interchangeable lenses. On the old one, an EOS, I keep a wide-angle lens. On my new Rebel XTi, which has image stabilization, I keep a telephoto lens. This solves two problems.
