Our travel plans will have us driving from home to Atlanta the day before our flight to BCN. My brother lives in the ATL area so what we have typically done is meet him and have him keep our car for us while we are gone. Because we will be gone for a month this time, that's a long time for him to have our car parked at his house - and his driveway is such that it makes it harder for him to get around with the extra car in the way. Because the day we fly out is also his birthday, we planned to just stay at a hotel near the airport rather than staying with him so he wouldn't have to go out of his way and miss part of his work day to haul us around.

Anyway, I had looked at one-way rentals for a vehicle to take and come back. When I checked, we could get a good rate on a one way from home to ATL, but from ATL back home was nearly 4 times as much - yikes - put it out of my price range. But today when I was thinking that I needed to confirm with my brother about our plans, I decided to check again and found that the return rate is nearly the same rate as the going rate, so I went ahead and made reservations for one-way rental vehicle to get us to the airport in June and another one to get us home in July.

We are staying at a hotel not too far from the airport that has a shuttle service, so our plan is to check in the hotel, meet my brother for dinner, and then return the rental car and take the shuttle back to the hotel. Then take the shuttle from the hotel to the airport on the 12th when we fly out. Then when we get home, we'll pick up the rental car and then spend the night at my brother's house before driving home the next day.

This will keep our car in our garage, out of the sun and other weather elements while we are gone. And we don't have to pay for parking at the airport, etc., and no inconvenience to my brother (see what a good sister I am?!) This is the longest vacation we've ever taken.
You are indeed a good sister !!

Most family live a distance away, and not easy to get them to take 2 weeks off to come to our place and watch our dog

..........
We have friends who hired the daughter of some friends. She was also a classmate of their son so they felt comfortable with her coming and going from their house and if there was any problem, her parents were available to help. The girl was a college student, had a part-time job for the summer but could be at the house enough to meet the dog's needs.

If we do, if there's anyone else staying over after the cruise for a night in BCN that wants to join us, we'd be glad to do that. We can work out arrangements later.
Is the fountain only turned on at night?

The water show is only at night. It doesn't work on Mondays, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Leaves us out again!

Coupons

For renting an apartment I was given access to a bunch of coupons. I will be happy to make copies and mail them off to anyone who wants one.

The most interesting are 1 euro off Casa Batllo, 2nd day free with by bus with Barcelona City Tour, One hour free with Go car, 10% off Segway tour, 5euro off taxi transfers from Barcelona center to El Prat airport, and a bunch for bike tours.

Luckily we are only a few miles from Dulles so it is a quick cab ride there. When are you flying out? We are on the red eye for the 24th.
LOL that's why he lays out the clothes, so I can edit out the shirts with stains and holes. We are on Iceland Air which leaves at 8PM on the 21st. It has a long layover in Iceland, in which we plan to go to the Blue Grotto. I figure 6 hours in a geo-thermal spa will be just the ticket between two long flights.

Looks like the cheapest way to the airport is a one way car rental from BWI to IAD. $40 vs about $150 to be driven down. Then hopefully, family can give us a ride back.

I expected the light show to only be at night, but not the water too. I expected the water to go off all day, like a fountain if not as a water show. But when I did a mapquest to find it, the satellite picture looks DRY. If it is not showing when we are there one night before the embarkation, it is one less thing I have to worry about.

I will concentrate on my hike to Sagrada (1.5 miles or less from the Renaissance) and perhaps a walk-by of Casa Mila and Casa Batillo (2 and 5 blocks from Renaissance.)

Did anyone notice that we have a roof-top pool on our hotel?

DH lays out his clothes so I can coordinate my clothing. We are "disgustingly cute' and wear coordinating or matching shirts on most days of our vacations and weekends.

I also pack more compactly which is good when paying for luggage on the way to a trip but not good on the way back since we buy things.....

Yay! Us, too. Although I think I'll probably go to sleep early and set an alarm to get up at 11:55 PM. I'm already ready for a nap - no way will I be able to stay up til midnight without some rest between now and then.

We have four excursions we want to book, no spa, no Palo, so it should be short and sweet.

Florence and Michelangelo
Bracciano Lake and Wine Tasting
Pompeii Half Day
Murano Glass and Burano Lace

Hopefully we'll be able to get all four of them. The most important is the Florence one.

Besides the brief moment of panic when I logged into my reservation tonight and it said "Pay in Full before you book cruise activities", it went ok - I was able to get the four we wanted. Good night - and good luck to those still booking.
