That's a great idea about visiting his store in Edmonds! We actually go up to Seattle every few months.
I went and looked at this and today it's $1798.00 from Seattle as well. The problem with this is that if you want pre/post stays, I'm pretty sure you have to reserve thru DCL. Which means a really, really expensive room (s).

And if you've got any dates scheduled to head toward Seattle, look here :

Yes the camera just floats in the bottom of my pacsafe bag but it fits well and everything else fits too. Mine is an olmpus dslr and a small lenses on it. I like the bag but I'm not a serious photog. In fact my camera mostly stays in the bag despite my best intentions. Lol.

I love Amazon....

So today, 3 Spanish workbooks arrived in the mail. The vocabulary is going well, but trying to retain conjugation facts while listening to an audio track is so NOT going to happen! I got Ashleigh her own kid-oriented book, and got Sean and I a verb tenses and pronouns and prepositions book. Came upstairs to make copies to start doing an exercise......and here I am. I will get to it, but I figured I'd stop in here for minute and say "hi"!

My sister and I plan to do all ports on our own so we just got the Italian Rosetta Stone. It's going well so far (even though I've only done a little over an hour). You can have five learners on one program so I'm going to make my 12 year old start it as well. I'm sure she won't want to because she'll be stopping every two minutes to text her friends! I'll just have to take her phone away while she does it. She will hate that! But a mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do! We just want to be able to make an attempt at asking directions if we get lost and to learn a few pleasantries. I have a rare day off in the middle of the week and DD is at school and Vince is at work so I also had every intention of cleaning today but so far I'm still in my pajamas and sitting on the computer!

Well, rats, I hadn't thought of that. Since we're doing the transatlantic we're thinking of the Med cruise as our extra days.

Thank you for the link

Y buena suerte a los estudiantes de espanol!

Thanks! I did get a few worksheets done the other day. It went pretty well. Didn't do any yesterday.....ended up working a 15-hr shift! Today's been a recovery day. I was a bit tired....

So here we are in CA, and the weather followed us here.. Sigh.

We went to an REI today for Sean, so I got to look at more bags. The Click Elite one I'd previously mentioned was there! Unfortunately, it's too small for my needs. The pics on the manufacturer's site looked promising, but that model must be seriously short. Shorter than me. So now I think I'm looking at this one:

http://www.clikelite.com/products/pro-express/

Looks huge, but so did the other one. I found a YouTube video demoing this one being stuffed full of camera gear and a MacBook, so I know that my stuff will fit. Now I need a sale on it........

Just an FYI. Rick Steves is having a Facebook blow out sale, 20% off certain bags until tomorrow night I believe. Oh and free shipping too.

Time sensitive Rick Steves offer....

Thanks for this!

From his Facebook page:

Iím unpacking from my road trip, and, I admit, I really packed heavy. (It just seemed right with my gas-guzzling American SUV.) Iíll also admit that I really loved the bags I used. To celebrate the safe and happy end of my Road Trip USA--and to get me in the mood for packing smart and light on my upcoming Europe trip this spring--this monthís Facebook blowout sale is all about my line of Rick Steves bags.
*
From now until 5 p.m. PDT, Wednesday, March 28, get 20 percent off of any bag in my Travel Store plus free standard shipping (US destinations only). That means, for example, our Convertible Carry-On (which I live out of in Europe for four months each year) is yours for just $80 including shipping, compared to the normal $100 plus $11 shipping--so you save $31. And our popular 21-inch Roll-Aboard (which I actually do love and know will make growing old so much more graceful for me) is just $120 including shipping, rather than the regular $150 plus $15 shipping--a $45 savings.
*
So, for 20 percent off on any bag plus free shipping (which can cover anything else you might want to purchase), go to our Travel Store and use the promo code: EUROPE at checkout.
*
Spread the news! This is good for Facebook friends, and their friends, and their friends.
*
Remember, there are a lot of you, so if the shopping cart is slow, just check back.
*
Happy travels!

Hi all!

Spring braeak in CA at my dad's house! We've had a very nice visit and are here another 2 days before having to head back home.

This afternoon, I took dad on a virtual tour of DCL's website and showed him how he was able to pull up his reservation and how to get info on the site. Showed him some of the research I've been hard at work on , and reviewed some of the tour ideas I had. Ahhhhhh.....trip planning with a newbie! Warms the cockles of my heart! Is it next year yet?

I remember when you were a newbie....
