I don't know if you got an internet plan, but we'd love to hear an update during the sailing!
My plan is to write stuff while at sea and then post in port with access to wi-fi. Whether that comes to fruition...well...we'll have to "sea". HAHAHA!!

So either I've gotten better at packing or I've forgotten something. I have all 3 large suitcases packed with room in each. The one suitcase that has a backpack attached will not need it, and I haven't even gotten out the carry-on sized bags. I'm thinking that some rearrangement will happen, but the carryons need to come...I need one for wine and the other for water. Do you know DCL wants to charge $48 for a case of water? I think NOT! Whatever is on the website doesn't include taxes and whatnot, so don't be fooled...

One more bank to call. I forgot that they are in a different time zone . Tomorrow is the last work day...a meeting was changed on me and I have to be at work at 0700. Ouch. But...that means I can leave early!!!! And my afternoon is packed with training, so it'll go quick !!

Leaves more room to bring stuff back with you!! Can't wait to read your trip report as we are on the July cruise to Greece. DH and DS are headed to South America on Thursday without me...so I'll have 10 days on my own to obsess about the cruise and all the things we need to do to get ready for it!

So we realized today that if you want to do the Go Cars in Barcelona, you need to get a international driving permit. Otherwise you run the risk of being pulled over and getting a fine of 500 Euros.

Thankfully they are easily and quickly obtained at AAA. Kim got hers on the way to the airport. I will get mine tomorrow.

Another thing I am seeing, which I don't remember happening last time I went to the Med., is many of our cruise group are having plane issues. From the Air France strike causing cancellations, to a lot of delayed flights in the US. It seems like everyone is getting off okay, but much later than expected.

My flight leaves out of Philadelphia tomorrow night at 6:25. The weather is supposed to be horrible, so I already anticipate delays. I'm pulling the kids out of school at about 2:30.

Kim's on her way to San Francisco and at 6:45 am EDT she's going to the airport to catch her plane eastward. We're both expected to be in BCN early Friday morning but she may encounter the same delays as I do, as the final leg of her journey is out of JFK. Wish us luck!!!

We're at SFO!! Sitting here at just after 5 am, drinking coffee, already thru security. Flight departs at 0705, so we have some time to kill. We ended up getting into San Jose last night about 9:30 after the plane had to be replaced, and after getting to dad's house and getting to bed, it ended up being more of a nap than a night's sleep. Hoping to sleep on the plane....

Yes, completely spaced on the driving permits. Totally unlike me. Mindy was hoping to parlay that into not doing the cars. Been planning it for more than a year and yesterday was trying to throw roadblocks in the way...kept reminding her that she didn't HAVE to do the same thing we are. Gonna see way more this way, tho! Permit process super easy at AAA. To expedite, we had the pics taken prior to leaving home, but they do take them on site if needed.
