With all this talk of sight-seeing in Europe, just want to mention touring China. We spent just shy of a month there in 1999 when we adopted our daughter--fascinating trip!!! As a couple who were raised through the Cold War, it was totally different from what we were expecting--no Mao suits, very little military presence. And such an old culture. And the food was not like any Chinese place I've ever eaten in the states (try to have it ordered by your guide--otherwise they'll tend to Americanize things a bit thinking that's what you want).

We had always intended to go back when our kids were in high school, but our daughter was not ready. But it's definitely not just another round of cathedrals and castles.

(not yet decided whether to take SS early, standard, or late--but have a few years yet)
