Then it was time to prepare for a month of travel in Europe! We started in Florence, spent a week in Tuscany with Chris attending a writer’s retreat, then on to Venice. We set up a special photo album for our Europe travels because it’s going to span May and June. As I write this we are in Ljubljana, Sovenia and headed to eastern Croatia where Jim’s grandfather was born.
By the way, our pictures, Blogs, Web Albums, maps, and videos are all examples of what we teach. You can learn how to plan, preserve, and share your travels (or your life.) It makes the experience that much more enjoyable to get creative and share pictures, maps, stories, and movies with friends and family. Check out our Learning Library of Tutorial Videos, just go toGeeksOnTour.com and click the menu for Tutorial Videos. There are plenty of free videos in addition to our members-only content to whet your appetite for learning.
