Hello from Ontario, Canada. I live approximately 1 hour NE of Toronto.

I'm a 71-year-old wife, mother and grandmother. Originally from Nova Scotia, I've lived in Ontario since 1978.

I retired from the City of Toronto in 2003, about 1 1/2 years after marrying for the 2nd time.

My husband and I enjoy gardening, travel, reading and spending time with our families.

Hello from Ontario, Canada. I live approximately 1 hour NE of Toronto.

I'm a 71-year-old wife, mother and grandmother. Originally from Nova Scotia, I've lived in Ontario since 1978.

I retired from the City of Toronto in 2003, about 1 1/2 years after marrying for the 2nd time.

My husband and I enjoy gardening, travel, reading and spending time with our families.

I've been a yoyo dieter most of my adult life, but since I joined Spark People 4 years ago, I've learned how to balance my food and exercise and am down 20 lbs. Since I was gaining 5-10 lbs. every year before joining Spark, I figure that I'm really down at least 40 lbs. from where I would have been.

I will be following this program for the rest of my life... it works!

What an itinerary you have- looks amazing!
We are flying Boston-Istanbul on 4/28- 2 nights there-
then flying to Prague- 3 nights there-
train to Vienna- 3 nights there-
train to Budapest- 3 nights there-
train to Bratislava- 1 night
back to Prague for 1 more-
fly to Istanbul for 1 more day, then flying back to Boston on May 14th.
Quite a bit of moving around but we wanted an overview of central Europe and most of it is free with FF miles or inexpensive DIY deals (like our first airbnb- will let you know how that works out). We pack very lightly, too.
My husband is very good with languages- at one time could speak at least some of ten or more- but we are just a little nervous about language difficulties in the region as they are so different.
I understand English is becoming more and more of a universal language- esp. in any tourist areas so we'll probably be fine.
I can't wait!
