March is here! And true to the old saying, it has come in like a lion - the wind today is roaring out of the south. But the daffodils are blooming, the hyacinths are opening, and my peach tree is trying to blossom. So my personal theme this month is Hope.
We're hopeful that the Covid-19 virus will come under control. We're hopeful that the tour companies will weather this storm. And as always, we're looking ahead to our own travel plans, full of hope and excitement.
Our next travel group meeting will be Saturday, March 21, at Panera Bread at 41st and Hudson (that's 5601 E. 41st, between Yale and Sheridan), at 10:00 a.m. Those of us who have travel plans for this year are still making changes, adding excursions, booking tickets, and asking for advice. Actually, several of us are asking for advice for tours for next year, or even the one after that!
And as always, all topics are open for discussion, and all comers are welcome. It's an open forum - come join in the fun.
If you love to travel, or would like to travel, or are curious about travel, come join us. Anyone is welcome; you don't have to have been on a Rick Steves tour, or any tour at all. You'll recognize us by the RS books on the table, and the big smiles on our faces.
