That is very cool! Hope you're having a smashing time!

We just booked for the Aug. 12th 2014 Ireland Date. Hopefully we get to meet a few others that are going on the trip with us. It will be myself, DH and our two DD's 17 & 15 at the time of travel.

So now they have different ones that are flimsy & basically useless? When I think of all the free advertising my husband has given ABD lugging that backpack (& wearing the free hat), it makes me wonder what value ABD is getting out of gifting a product that will end up in the trash bin.

Re: First Day gifts- The added touches are one of the reasons I went with ABD. Without them, they are one step closer to being like the other tour companies.

But I will save any further judgment on these issues until I return from Ireland. Can't wait!
My friend and I will be on this September trip. Our first ABD, and her first trip abroad. We are thrilled to be joining! +55

That's a big group! But we will come away with many new friends. Are you doing a pre-day, KathiL? Where are you flying from? JacksGirlz is in the middle of posting a trip report filled with wonderful photos. She included good suggestions of things to do in Dublin. I'm learning a lot about the trip from reading others' reports that you can find here on the boards. For example, Ive made a note to pack barf bags for the bus rides Btw, how strong are you? I think my DH will need some help getting me back up after I turn upside down to kiss the Blarney stone. :

We're coming in from Houston via LHR on the 14th. We wanted to come early but it just didn't work out with schedules. Killing myself re the barf bags!!! A couple of emergency room bags accidentally found their way into my purse a few months ago, so I guess I might have to smuggle them into my carry-on on. As for the Blarney Stone, trust me, if I go upside down kissing anything, y'all better have 911 on speed dial. I've read a bunch of reviews and post - all wonderful. New friends, new places, laughter - what more can we ask for. .

They have someone that helps you go down and back up when you kiss the Blarney Stone, but it was a dizzying experience for me. Very glad I did it though

Have Fun!

Tour documents

Does anyone know when I should expect my "box" (tour documents)? I thought I saw that they mail these out 30 days in advance. We're leaving on 9/13 and so far nothing has been received. Don't want to call reservations and bug them if this is normal...

You should have gotten it by now. Did you use a travel agent? If you did, they might have it.
