Some Final Thoughts:
Looking back on the trip, we managed to put together a memorable experience. Some of it was pure dumb luck, but it worked out. The cities and towns we visited, the hotels where we stayed, the transportation all turned out to be good choices. For a couple of duffers we were pretty pleased.
