    I would purchase 6 books for the Limpia store. What is the price for the store?
    Thank you, Roberta

  2. Jim what a cool idea–I might just take it one way and STAY!

    Best to you–we just did our first running trip with some ultra runners and the Raramuri–it was a perfect trip.


  3. Beth Francell says:

    I would like to visit the Channel Islands. My father’s mother’s family immigrated from there in 1856. I love the idea of taking a repositioning cruise (New Orleans-Dover), as I dislike transatlantic flights. Are there also cruises back to the states say three weeks later? Still would love to go to Scotland with you but our next big trip has got to be to Alaska.

    • Jim Glendinning Jim Glendinning says:

      You’ll love the Channel Islands. Let me tell you about them sometime. An eastbound (return) cruise 3 weeks later is not going to work, however. These cruises happens in October. And to fly home, you will probably buy a round trip ticket, being cheaper than one-way.
