    Hey guys. I’m Adam from Chicago. I’m going to be on this trip also. Is anyone planning on arriving in Europe a bit early? I was thinking about spending a few days in Italy or France before the trip. Let me know if you also plan on being there. If not, still looking forward to meeting you all when the trip begins.

    Toronto, Atlanta, Chicago, NY, wow USA east coast is going to represent on this tour Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> – I in and out the same day, would have loved to hang around a few extra days, but it’s hard to run too far from the reality of work.

    If anyone is transfering though NY, my flight is: Sat, Aug 23 @ 5:50 LUFTHANSA, LH 0407

    Good to know that there are some others who will be staying in Ibiza after the trip. I am going to be there until September 8th. Luckily I am in-between jobs and not starting my new job until mid September so I don’t have to worry about running from the reality of work. Looking forward to meeting all of you and if anyone is going to be in Italy from the 19th through the 24th, let me know.

    I just joined the Aug. 22nd tour. My name is Isabelle and I am from NYC. I am arriving in Barcelona at 1pm on the 23rd, and I would love to meet up with everyone (maybe for drinks?). Cannot wait. I have been to Spain before and it is a blast. I do speak Spanish so I can help those that do not know it. Cool<!--graemlin::cool:-->
