Month in Review

I can't believe it's been a month since my last entry. Hopefully this massive entry will get you up-to-speed.

In April I finished up working with EF Smithsonian, and I had a great group of kids. It was a three bus move of English as a second language students touring Philadelphia and New York City. It was fantastic weather, so we really lucked out.

Beginning May 12 I'll be working for GrandLuxe Rail. I just returned from a training session from Albuquerque to Napa Valley. I'm really excited about the season. My first tour starts in Jackson, Wyoming, with tours around Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. We'll then meet up with the luxury train and make our way through national parks, including the Grand Canyon, ending in Albuquerque.

Here's the wonderful Tour Leader faces that will greet the guests in Wyoming - Tasha, Ernest and Me.
