I'm glad you enjoyed the vacation with your children. Also pleased you mentioned the tip from a travel agent which saved you considerable money. Perhaps what you should've included in your story was: "...if you glean nothing else from this essay, remember: Always ..." use a trusted travel agent!

My brother and sister-in-law took their two teenaged children on an extended trip to Europe this past summer. They camped in Germany (yes, they took camping gear with them), rented a cottage for a week in Sweden, maybe did a hotel somewhere in there and camped some more. When my brother had to come back to the U.S. and go back to work, my sister-in-law and the kids stayed another two weeks, and two of my nephew's friends joined them. They went to France, Belgium and a couple other countries I do believe. Both my and sister-in-law lived in Europe at differant points in their lives, brother in Sweden, sister-in-law in Germany, so they were used to the cultural differences in those countries and I think it's great they were able to share all of this with their kids, before my nephew graduates from high school this summer, and my niece the year after that. I'd love to do something like this myself!
