Travelers' Intercom

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 husband, Clyde, and I took a 35-day trip to India in March-April 2012 with arrangements made by Swagatam Tours (New Delhi, India; phone 91 11 25444000, fax 25444010).
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.
Typically, my husband, Frank, and I are independent travelers. However, after his stroke five years ago it became necessary to modify our habits.
