Rick Steves’ Spain and Portugal 2003 On my way to spain. Gotta do some planning.
I have always found the Eurail & Train Travel Guide to Europe very helpful. There is lots of good information on how to actually plan your trip, down to the time of each trail you can take.
So, I finished the one about the Dance shoes, and am now starting the THeater shoes one. I’m punting work of course, but a person can only work so much before they get burned out. The story is set during WWII, and how these kids in England have to live with rations and waiting for their dad to come home. It has some poignant moments. But, still a good story. Lots of growing up lessons and ideas about how children observe the world.
I had finished this one, by Noel Streatfield, a classic. It was quite good, considering it is a kids book. I learned a lot about the culture of England at that time, I think it was the 1930s. Anyway, the story was quite charming, and I’m planning on reading it to some younguns someday.
I ended up finishing the Tawny Man Series, book I, Fools Errand, and it was AWESOME. I can only wait for the second book to come out in hardcover.
