      Is it Poison Oak or Not? Photo Gallery

      WAI just returned from Spain with 31 traveler/explorers. We had a great
      time traipsing through old medieval centers like Toledo and Segovia,
      wondering at the stunning Moorish architecture of the Alhambra, trekking
      among the nostalgic windmills of Quixote’s La Mancha, viewing the
      mountains of Africa from the Rock of Gibraltar, and taking in the charm
      of Andalusia in Cordoba and Granada. Country walks blended with city
      charmers, and great food and wine! We still have room on the October
      departure for Spain and Portugal.
      This Adventure will not be offered in 2008.
