Sounds like you had a wonderful trip - come on, let's have some more details!

I think I told you all I was going with my grandson and his Latin class.  
Well, we were joined by a group of highschool atheletes from Springfiled, 
Illinois, and a group of graduate students from Carolina A & T University.  What a 
pleasure to be with such terrific people.  Anybody who thinks highschool kids 
are a lost cause should have met the ones with us.  They were all winners.  
Because it was such a young group the trip was fast paced with no time for 
boredom.  I saw more in the 10 days I was gone than most adults could squeeze into a 
month.  The weather was perfect the entire time.  I had never stayed in a 
"youth" hotel before and found the ones we visited were pretty sparce in the 
amenities department, but those experiences are the ones memories are made of.  If 
I could afford it I would go with them every summer -- especially if the trip 
included Sorrento.  I absolutely loved that town.  Along with Delphi in Greece 
it was my favorite.  My grandson now has delusions of owning a villa on 
Capri!  We took the night ferry to Greece, and I think the kids stayed up most of 
the night in the disco on board.  I went to sleepl at 8.
