Any other tips from anyone, including best way to get there (Looks like maybe the bus)? We are not on FB so did not see the report there.

Thanks!
We got ours thru ticketmaster. No towers, no guide. We are using the bus Turistic hoho bus for our sightseeing that day. It looks like a 25 minute stroll from where we are staying.

If the "tower" is taking the elevator up to the top, then we did it in 2010. Allison loved taking those dark windy steps down and the view from the top is amazing (but not any more spectacular from the view from the top of Park Guell). We didn't take any guided tours either.

My wife has a razor and my son has an iphone. Both work in Europe. My wife purchased additional data minutes for over seas. We have Verison and did not have to do anything special.

London Walks is amazing! We recommend them, too. Glad you guys are having a good time - we loved London so much and can't wait to go back. Have a safe transfer to Paris and keep in touch. See you real soon.

Mindy, you guys should plan a trip to London sometime. It is a fabulous city and I hope to have a chance to go back some time. It took me 46 years to get there the first time, I hope it doesn't take that long before I can go back. And honestly, if we hadn't been cruising in the Baltic when we did, I don't think I would have gotten there yet, so yay for Disney Cruise Line

I was looking for the "LIKE" button, but forgot I was on the Dis trying to finally get caught up.
Won't be long.

Exclamation Strike Alert!

Several air traffic controllers are staging a strike from June 11 to June 13 - affecting flights in France, Italy, Greece, Hungary and more. No mention of Spain yet.

We are stressing - our flight arrives at CDG in Paris at 8:00 a.m. on june 14. Air France has committed to getting long haul flights into and out of Paris (although they don't rule out delays and last minute cancellations), but then we are on a short flight a couple hours later to Barcelona. Technically the strike will be over but I'm worried the back up will cause complete chaos. There are several other flights to BCN that day, plus we could always take the train. This is exactly why we would never plan on arriving in a port on embarkation day!


Hope everyone else gets there safely and with minimal delays.

Thanks for posting this. I'm hoping there will be loads of pixie dust to get us all there on time and without event.
