No problem still having to deal with just my phone and no computer but maybe the link is still in your private messages I sent? I will be able to send it to you by Sunday night for sure... Have fun in your workshops!!

It absolutely depends on when you fly. We only use United (so we can be Premier), so I pay cash for off-season trips, but then use miles during peak season (like we just went to WV for Thanksgiving for only 40K miles each!) I don't like crowds so that helps us avoid high fares.

Lol, yes that's true - I suppose I think like that because of the reason I quit FB, the place I worked before was terrible for it, there were groups of people on there bullying others we worked with. Scary when you think some of these people were in their 40's/50's! I'm not sure what it is like in the US but social media rules a persons job over here now. Companies will search forums for their names and check whats being said against employee manifests. If you are caught saying something slanderish, you are dismissed on the spot.

Also I was just sick of going out with certain friends or sitting at work and having friends say did you see what so and so said on FB? I'm like is that all you have to talk about?!

And there was one women who I used to work with who was on maternity leave - when she had her baby, she was updating her status 10 - 15 times a day. Constantly writing on mutual friends walls, playing the games, inviting people to tak quizzes. People were saying at work that when she came back it wouldn't be the baby she missed, it would be FB! She kept saying oh (baby's name) has just smiled! When I saw them, I just kept thinking why don't you spend time with the baby and take photos of that instead of sitting on a computer/phone etc telling the world?

Sorry to go on and on there, it just drives me nuts! as you have probably figured out!

Wow so again we pay about the same ish as you to cross the Atlantic! You always just assume the people in US can go as often as they want lol.

I have a friend who MIGHT help us - but he has been MIA - so rather than stress, we want to book some method of transportation. The busses and trains don't start until 8am, and we would miss our flight.

So, any cheapy ways to make this short drive?

All input is appreciated.
DLRP offer a coach service to CDG and Orly airports - do they not start until 8am as well?

Renting a car the evening we get into Houston for a booze run since Southwest flies into Hobby and we are staying at the Marriott at Bush International. Funny, we are taking DCL transportation and Hobby is closer to Galveston so we have to end up backtracking. Such is life!

Not sure about our plans in Barcelona besides getting a great hotel for Saturday night for $158 US dollars. We have been to Barcelona a few times and may want to go elsewhere. I am emailing my friend in Madeira we are coming again!

This time I have promised DH John only two bags each since we spent 600 Euros last time flying from Barcelona to Frankfurt on Air Berlin. Flying home United, there are no extras costs for two bags!
Welcome aboard!

We are organising so many great events - here is the link to our second thread which tells you on the first 1/2 pages about everything that is going on. We have a great website set up as well so you can let each organiser know what you would like to sign up for.

Lol - aww I love following DB round, especially at night and at sunrise. It's kinda of our thing now

And also, it's SO much easier to bribe him to book lots of holidays and city breaks because I just get him to look at other photos on Flickr of the place and he's like let's go!

Cool, Mark is looking forward to it all. I may get him to sign up on it. He loves Scott Kelby - he's halfway through his Photoshop CS6 book at the moment, and thinking about doing his online photography classes. Will have to check out this worldwide photo walk - thanks!

Yes, several of us. And the sad thing is... It is pretty much the same exact people on both facebook and this thread. Here we have moderators and there we have people who get mad when an admin (one of us like myself) tries to do the right thing. Hopefully having a mission statement and netiquette guidelines posted last Sunday over there will help. Same thing happens on dis... I turned off Dis PMs last summer after receiving one pm that was hurtful. Rudeness is everywhere but hopefully folks will be kind to one another now. With 12+ years on cruise critic I had never seen an adult cruise group like such.

Hoping to move forward now on both boards. Just barely over three months left!!
