This will give me something to read after the cruise when we're back at work and counting down for our next trip

See you in a couple of weeks - can you believe it's so close now

Two weeks from tonight, we will be on a plane to Barcelona RIGHT NOW. I can't believe all of the things I still need to do...I bought a luggage scale yesterday, and I weighed the suitcase I've been throwing random things into and although it felt heavy to me, it was only 14 pounds. I discovered I am quite weak. I used to be strong when the twins were babies, lugging around two baby seats will give you muscles like you wouldn't believe.

So, I have to get clients prepared for when I am gone, find coverage for specific clients, set up the daily household schedule for DMIL who is babysitting my crew, two cheer banquets, cheer tryouts (high school and all star, two different kids), last cheer competition (in Kansas City), keep my house clean for DMIL (cleaned frantically for Easter so it is maintenance), baseball practice for son, trade show one evening next week, and several other practices and events thrown in there. Whew, I am tired just writing it.

I had fun dividing my Euros up in envelopes for our tour guide, and bought a cute wallet at Walgreens that has several slots like an acordian, I thought that would be good for different currencies. I actually enjoy packing, that might make me weird.

I also finished assembling and wrapping my fish extender gifts, I am quite pleased with the result.

Oh, and on top of everything else...I am in the process of finishing little booklets, about 50 half pages each, with our itinerary and port information as well as historical details. I am binding them for use on the trip, and they are turning out adorable, I will have to post pictures!

Hi!
What airline are you flying and what is your connection.
How far out did you purchase your fare and do you think you got a good deal?

We fly from STL, have one layover in Philly, and then to Barcelona, US Airways. $830 pp round trip, and we sail on April 24, I purchased airfare on Feb 9. Yes, I think it was a very good price!

I am not using DCL transportation at the beginning of the cruise, but we are at the end...our flight leaves at 10:30 AM which makes me nervous but it was the only flight all day and a lot of people were put on that flight by DCL. I haven't quite figured out how we are going from airport to hotel, or hotel to port.

Hey: I think we may be on the same flight with you-US Air from Phil. arriving in Barcelona at 8:35 a.m. on the 23rd? We're staying an extra day in Barcelona on the return-if I had know DCL was booking people that early-we'd be on the return with you as well!

Yes, sounds like the same flight! There are three sets of couples in our group. We have a 5 hour layover first from STL .

I was worried about that return flight time, especially since it changed to a little earlier (started at 10:45 and got earlier). But several on our thread have stated Disney put them on that flight so that made me feel so much better!

I have the opposite problem-our connecting flight gets us there at 5:00-sort of a tight connection for international travel...but I preferred this flight because it was direct-connecting in Europe is stressful!!
