My Facebook is under: Raleigh Michelle Fitzpatrick, Texas A&M network from Houston, TX. Hope that helps!

I sort of started packing and my mom is about half done... but we do have another day or two before it needs to be fully ready!
Welcome Aboard

I sent you a friend request in facebook. Not sure if being added to the facebook group is possible at this point as it is a closed group and the administrator has to add you. I will post over there and see if someone can add you
The first post of this thread has info for meeting up with other Disers.

Casa Rocca Piccola in Valletta Malta-Private Tour

Hi Everyone,
I know this is super late, but we changed our plans for Malta and have been trying to make some final decisions for our day in Valletta. I found this place called Casa Rocca Piccola and it is closed on Sundays. I spoke with them this morning and they will do a private tour on Sunday July 7, at noon if there are 12 paying adults/students. The adult rate is 9 Euro and the student rate is 5 Euro age 14 and up. Children under 14 are free. It is a private residence, so she did say it is designed for adults and students. If anyone is really interested please note on this thread but also send me a PM. Please check out the reviews and website www.casaroccapiccola.com Thank you.

Diagonal Mar?

Anyone else staying at the Diagonal Mar? We arrive Wednesday morning. Am hoping to see the Sagrada Familia that afternoon and beyond that just try and get a taste of Barcelona. Will probably hit the beach for a little on Thursday morning before the bus picks us up.

Madrid

Fabulous day in Madrid, took the HOHO bus earlier, hot and sweaty but great. went in for a 2 hour siesta, so tired from not sleeping much on the plane ride from LAX. Went back out, Tapas, Sangria and another HOHO bus ride to finish out the night. What a great city, boy does this city wake up at night. Still not too dark out at 10 pm, another day and then on to Zaragoza.

Thought I'd share a little something I ran across that I think is really neat (no i don't work for them)

We are in the process of packing (and wife getting nervous cause we don't speak a lot of spanish, french, etc), but ran across the 'Jibbigo" app for smartphones.. color me impressed for a bi-directional/'off-line translator".. might or might not come in handy for ya

Obviously google has one too (Google translate) but it's internet 'on' only

One couple expressed interest in going to casa rocca with us, so that puts us at 6. We only need 6 more. Anyone else? We leave for Barcelona on Monday, so I would need to know by 9:00 a.m. so that I can notify the owner. Thank you.

Luckily DH works for AMEX, so he got Euro yesterday 1.42, transaction fee waived, rest of cash we'll use ATM's for.... Thought of getting Euro travelers checks and cashing them at guest services, but decided against it.....
I was at guest services when a woman used a check for $300 for currency exchange so that is likely different than just for cash. I will see if I can find out if there is a limit.

We bought regular American e press travelers checks in $ US. Specifically for exchanging for euro on the ship. Any we have leftover we will just apply to our account. Also any euro we have left that we exchanged on the ship for, we will exchange back.
