I never thought about getting the RS Med book on my i-pad! Great idea for when I'm sitting around waiting for the kids to finish their sports and other activities. Off to purchase it now...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Well, another one of us, thanks to you, have Rick Steves Med ports book in hand and are learning sooo much, which makes it all so exciting!
Also looked at apartments, just as you said much more realistic. I sometimes get a Starwood hot rate with my brother working for the Sheraton, which the Meridian is part of that group, but no luck on the rate there. The apartments look like they will suit us better anyway with my daughter and her other half.
Is it spring out there anywhere? Here has been funny here, but typically Alberta!
Thanks! The pics are from the firefighter stairclimb in Seattle. A fundraiser for the Leukemia/Lymphoma society, they wear full gear on an an air tank and go up 69 floors. They wear pics on their helmets on family or friends that are fighting cancer or have survived/lost their battle. This year, Sean was climbing for his cousin. He's had a personal friend/famIly member to climb for all 3 years he's done the race .

Spring? What's that? Weve gotten a lot of yucky weather....rain, wind, cold, but got a random warmer afternoon two days ago. I have hope....

We headed to one of the REI stores yesterday to do a little research on 2 different things. One was unrelated to the trip ( a hitch mounted bike rack for the new car), and the other was the elusive perfect camera bag. Well, the bag is still elusive. They had a terrible selection of bags to look at. Even not looking at camera bags, they had 1...yes 1, style of Pacsafe backpack...the smallest one they carry. The camera bag that had there was this one:

http://www.rei.com/product/800123/mo...um-camera-pack

and I was not impressed. While the idea that the bag is split in 2 has merit, the reality is that you can't fit much in the camera portion. There was an area for a laptop or an iPad, but still....the camera would end up having to float around in the bigger compartment.

They also had this one:

http://www.rei.com/product/800123/mo...um-camera-pack

which is the successor to the one I already have and is too small for my needs. Disappointing. Need to go to one of the bigger REI's....like the flagship in Seattle!!

I know its not what youre looking for but I wanted to mention I have a Pacsafe bag, the sling/backpack with the zipper handles that split to wear it either way. . I really love it. I travel with it all the time and I like the security features it has. It's also comfortable to wear.

Glad to hear the MR was a good trip! You hear so much bad stuff coming out of Mexico these days....

I sooooooo wish we could do a TA, but Sean's work changed their bargaining agreement and him getting more than 2 weeks off is a chore. The only way we're doing it next summer is that he's taking off the "summer" dates pre-scheduled and will do trades for the 2 shifts we'll need for travel over to Barcelona. I haven't entertained DCL air at this point. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that it's something really crazy like 3k per person. DO NOT quote me on that, tho. You have the benefit of going off-season...I'll be driving thru Portland next week, btw!!!

And as far as the husband becoming a convert...we were walking thru the store this afternoon and Sean starts humming the ringtone to my phone...Spectromagic.....!!!!!
Getting the time off is such a .

I looked at air for my aunt and uncle, they are flying from SeaTac. The fare was $1798.29 for each traveler. Not sure if it'll stay that price, but that's what it was a few days ago.

Portland is looking beautiful right now! So green and lush. We were just there today. Enjoy the drive through.

My Rick Steves book got here and I am loving it! Tons of great info. Thank you so much for the recommendation.


ETA I just checked the Venice sailing in June and airfare is the same for that as it is for my aunt and uncle coming out on the June 1st sailing.

Mindy has a pacsafe bag as well and seemed to like it. I'm probably going to have to order the 2 options I'm considering and return the one I don't like. I hate doing that !

is the airfare you're quoting DCL's or looking for the comparable rates for this year?

Glad you're liking the book! If you come up to visit your family, you should take a pilgrimage to his store in Edmonds!!

Actually, I just have the fanny pac version (which I think might be way too big for me now, I must try it). Jim has the pacsafe backpack. He loves it. He was able to carry everything in it, including his camera and lens.

The airfare is DCL's. If you go to www.disneycruise.com and plug in your dates and then click on continue, you get the option to add airfare. It'll show you the price.

That's a great idea about visiting his store in Edmonds! We actually go up to Seattle every few months.

Hm. But his camera was just floating? Pics, please.
