Has anyone signed up for STEP

I was researching on travel warnings for our Europe trip on the U.S. Dept. of State Bureau of Consular Affairs. On the website, it highly recommended to sign up for Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) when traveling to Greece and Turkey.

Here's the website that I found:

http://travel.state.gov/travel/tips/...tion_4789.html

So, it requests for the dob and passport #.

Has anyone done this before? If so, do you recommend it? I just don't want my identity stolen.

Does anyone know if there is a HOHO like Barcelona Bus Turistic in Paris? We are trying to get everything lined up for our trip. We had plenty of time and have been planning our trip. Now the time to leave is coming up fast. We know what we want to do in Paris, just trying to see if there is a HOHO that goes by the sites we want to see.

I contacted Paris Walks, but they said they were booked. Are there any other walking tours someone can recommend?

Hi, Michael:

Here's the office Paris Tourism website for tour buses like the HOHO bus for Paris.

http://en.parisinfo.com/paris-sights...ourist-train-/

It's in English.

You are so lucky! Hope that your family has a safe trip over.

We are using Paris Muse for two family oriented private tours while in Paris - the Louvre and a walking tour. They have many other group walking and museum tours. I was very happy so far with the communication I have received and was able to pay with Paypal. They are highly rated on Tripadvisor. Good luck!

For you U.S. history buffs, I just read that USS Williamsburg was naval ship which became President Truman's personal yacht in 1945 is sitting the the port of La Spezia.

The town plans to scrap it if it sinks.

Sonar Fest June 13 - 15, 2013 - Barcelona

After doing more research in filling my schedule while we are in Barcelona, I found out that the Annual Sonar Fest is happening from June 13 - 15, 2013.
It's Barcelona's 20th International Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art.

It will be especially busy around the Fira Montjuic (Magic Fountain) area as well as transportation.

Here's the website for those of you who are interested in attending the Festival:

I thought someone mentioned it earlier in the thread and there was some person or group that many were disappointed that we would miss seeing because they were performing on sat night. Was I incorrect on this?

Yes, there's concerts start in the morning and going until midnight. I really want to watch the PetShop Boys and Kraftwerk.

I love the 80's just reminds me of my high school years

Yes they were saying we'd miss the PetShop boys.

Thanks for this. We may reconsider the fountains on Friday evening. Not sure i want to venture into an exponentially larger crowd than a regular night would be.

Puredata cried about this earlier because Petshop boys are playing a day too late
