    Hello LeeAnn:
    I am new to your group. This trip sounds quite wonderful. It is very clear, except for the "optional" comments on a few of the entries. I am assuming this is extra cost. Am I right?
    Also, is there a great deal of walking on this trip. I am okay with that, except if they are extremely long walks.
    Thanks and I look forward to your response.
    Cheers, Valerie
