Our boxes arrived and the countdown is on. We are just weeks away from our 07/20 adventure to Greece. Our family (me, DH, DD 15 and DS 13) is looking forward to our 5th adventure. Who is joining us?

Welcome to the ABD Forum, runtabella! You're on the same trip with abdalums, who has done a multitude of ABD's! This looks like a fabulous trip.

We are at the tail end of our trip... Just one more day! Time just flew by and this has been one incredible adventure!!! To all those about to leave for this trip, prepare for the heat.

WeLoveABD and abbyjt will be contributing their trip report pretty soon, I am quite sure.

DD 14 is dying to go to Greece next summer. Her father says it isn't safe for Westerners to go now and doesn't think the situation will change that much in a year. What do you all think? It would be just a mom-daughter trip. Obviously, you wouldn't all be going if you thought it was dangerous. Ideas? Thoughts?

Trust me Disney will not be doing a trip even if they think it is remotely dangerous. Their safety precautions are unbelievable. Example, we were on Viva Italia trip and we were in some fairly crowded places, like St. Peters Basilica, they will count us back and forth. Safety is their priority. My motto , If Disney goes, I go.

Hey, NoraG! I talked to ABD today, and they told me that there are 19 people on our trip, and our Guides will be Landon (he was one of the Guides on my London/Paris ABD - Great Guide!) and a local gal named Stavrola (I may have the spelling wrong.)

Boxes should be going out in the next couple of days!

Whoohoo! Just a little under 5 weeks to go!

That sounds great. I like that it will be small size. I can't wait until we get the boxes! When we first signed up I asked if there was an alternative to the backpack since we have ours from last year, but they said they've been redesigned so there's no option to trade it out yet. I'm excited to see what it looks like. I can't believe we only have about a month to go!!! I should start packing-and I'm only half kidding

Lucky you! I just told my son that Landon was back in Greece this summer and he was ready to cancel Ireland and head back to Greece. He loved Landon! Our other guide was Elena--could that have been her name? She was also AWESOME!

I am glad Landon can be your Kayaking partner. Hooray!

The box always makes it seem more real. I have 3 backpacks. (The first year they gave us this massive, heavy messenger bag, that I would never carry on a trip!) But they told me, also, since they re-designed the backpacks, there's no choosing what you want. That's OK. I'll never have to buy a backpack again.

I'm trying to not think too much about packing just yet, because it's really intimidating!

I do love Landon! The other guide was definitely not Elena. The poor ABD guy was having the worst time pronouncing her name, I hated to ask him to spell it. I'll let you know when I find out for sure

Will you send me a pic when you get your backpack? I asked the same question hoping to not get another backpack for the NYC trip.
