Mostly packed. Either I've gotten better at this or I've forgotten something. Same bags as last time, not yet full . More room for stuff to bring back, right??

Tomorrow is my last work day; we leave Wednesday evening SEA-SJC. Thursday am SFO-JFK-BCN!!

There was an explosion at ATL. They evacuated the airport.

Pls. Pass the word along to those traveling to ATL.

abayaflowers - checking the news now.

Sounds like an explosion in the maintenance shed and they evacuated Concourse D - hopefully it will all be ok and not back up too much traffic for tomorrow. Zach just said he hopes they get all the travel scare stuff done today before we fly tomorrow.

We are in ATL... Short delay leaving from home when we discovered we needed our employee ID for the rental car rate we got which was $100 less than any other available rate, so we took the extra hour to go home, get my ID, then back to get the car then back home to load up and go. S we didn't leave home until noon but it was fine because my brother couldn't meet us til 6:00 so he got to the hotel just a few minutes after us. We had dinner together then we returned the rental car and took the shuttle back to the hotel. Checked in online for our flights.... So now we sleep, have altar check out tomorrow, then off to the airport!

Reposting this as I had some PMs asking for details.

From the Renaissance Barcelona, we will take the metro, L3, from the Passeig de Garcia station to the Placa Espanya station. Here's the metro map online. The nearest metro stop to the hotel is the Passeig de Garcia where lines 3 and 4 meet. And while I'm at it, here's info about fares. It seems that because the route is all within Zone 1 that we can use a T10 card for 9,80 Euro for our family (and have two uses left over) rather than paying 2 euro per person each way (which would be 16 euro round trip for the 4 of us). The T10 card gives you 10 uses and can be shared among your group, so you just have to be careful putting it in and out of the machine.

It looks like we should allow about 30-45 minutes to get there with plenty of tie to spary (it may be pretty busy) from the hotel to include time to walk to the metro stop (which is very close to the hotel), purchase required metro tix (we may go get ours earlier in the day), getting to the stop, and then walking to the fountains from the metro stop, so I'd say if we leave the Renaissance Barcelona no later than 8:00 pm, we should be there in plenty of time for the Remix Disney show at 9:00 PM. It looks like the next performance starts at 9:17 PM so we can still be back to our respective hotels and apartments before we turn into pumpkins ala Cinderella's coach.

So does that sound like a good plan, or does someone have other suggestions (I'm open, I had originally planned to just ask the concierge at the hotel for the best way to do it but tonight I was working on our Barcelona details and had the Streetwise Map out and saw how easy it looked). Feel free to jump in with your experience or other information we may have overlooked. Can't wait to be there next week!!!!

Scary stuff in ATL - glad to hear it hasn't affected too many. Strike in France is ending a day early, so looks like we are OK for Friday arrival in Paris and on to Barcelona!!!! Now just need to navigate CDG and get to the other terminal on very little sleep with two kids in tow - won't be shy about asking for help that's for sure!

Can't wait to meet all of you on Saturday! Hard to believe after almost 500 days of waiting it is right around the corner!!!
