Dear Everyone,

I think of Vienna very often. In June of 2010, I spent 10 days in Vienna and nearby, retracking all the steps there of 50 years ago. I stayed in a reasonable pension “Suzanne” and could hear the opera every night from my window.

I have all the itineraries of all the field trips sponsored by IES as well as the Christmas time in the Holy Lands with a different tour, and the entire summer traveling with my Dad in Algeria, Tunisia, and a 2nd time to Italy, then, Scandinavia and British Isles and home on the Holland Am. line ship with Ies students.

I have continued to travel since. Just back from Florida, and made the trip to Chicago this past Oct. for the All Vienna Reunion of IES. And found my Vienna roommate of ’60-’61, Margaret (Nancy) Robling, a wonderful reunion with Nancy.

I am now off to Chautauqua Institution, NY for the summer, to a 6th generation cottage of my family with grandchildren. I would love to hear from classmates at

All the best to you and to October 2011. I would love to return every year to Vienna.

Penny Goodwin Kurtz

p.s. My Bucket List includes back to British Isle to do the famous author and poets, and a trip to South America. I did Asia in 1989 with Australia.
