Hi all. Glad to see folks traveling once again. Baker, Europe is on my list for next year. Good to know the flight wasnít bad. Iíve never been on a plane for a long haul. I did fly across the country to Alaska once and with all the stops and layovers it took longer than a red eye to Europe!

Anyone have big Memorial weekend plans? Itíll be quiet here so let me live vicariously through you.

I actually did well. The newer international planes have so much onboard free entertainment that didn't exist 40+ years ago. Trafalgar was a great choice. The hotels were very conveniently placed by tourist attractions. The itinerary provided guided tours to the main tourist attractions with plenty of free time that could be filled with optional guided tours. We only did two optional tours - both in Paris. We preferred to use our free time to enjoy the cities on our own. The Director of the tour would give us ideas of places to visit, which we appreciated.

Amazingly the entire trip was mask less. No masks required at the Philadelphia airport, on the planes, on metro, buses, ferry - it was kind of amazing. We did need to test 24 hours before returning to the US, which was $17 euro and quick. I have to admit that some of the crunchy areas (changing of the guard & Versailles) I was a bit uncomfortable.

Saturday we're off to WDW for a long weekend. I am hoping it's as mask free as going to Europe.


Glad you enjoyed! And wonderful on a fully maskless trip. As for WDW, itís as maskless as you want it to be now, not required anywhere. Hopefully never to be required again.

Grabbed a Boulder Ridge 1-bedroom for Saturday night a couple hours ago so looks like Iíll have a quick Disney getaway. 90s though so will be almost solely inside time for me. Tom and Robin here this weekend so dinner with them.

Thatís it for nowÖ

We're enjoying our rescheduled November '21 trip we had to cancel. Unless SW changes it will be our last time using SWVacations as they can only be used with flying SW round trip. Epcot here we come (hopefully, as we're on a SW 1:40p flight which is often cancelled or delayed).

No weekend plans here! With being away for two weeks - then out last week at our company meeting in Atlanta I am happy to have no place to go!! However, I am still jealous that Brian can just book a random night at WDW. The month of May just disappeared. I can't believe it is Memorial Day already.

Planning to watch Obi-Wan on Disney plus with our son tonight. Ordered some pizza and I might open the bottle of Skywalker wine I got for Christmas.

Patty, enjoy your quiet weekend, and time with your son and that bottle

Brian, sounds like a good time!

Baker, so many rescheduled trips from the last two years. Almost feels like the fun of planning a trip two years ago has become ď letís just get it over with! ď.

You can do it, too! Just takes you a bit longer to get down hereÖ
