Hi Anne,

My granddaughter (age 12) and I are flying from JFK through MIA for the July 11 program, probably arriving at the hotel around 3 pm and will look for you there. Julie Nann


Anne Rogers Feb 06, 2015 at 04:41 PM

Is anyone else flying from MSP for the July 11, 2015 program?


Joan Dolinsky Jul 19, 2014 at 02:57 PM

HI Sylvia,
We arrive at the San Jose airport at 1:25 from Boston. Not sure what time we will be at the hotel, but hope to meet up with you. Joan


Sylvia Jacob Jul 06, 2014 at 11:18 AM

Hi Edyie and Joan. My granddaughter and I will be on the trip the 24th. We arrive from BWI at 12PM, probably at the hotel in time for lunch. Are either of you going to be there that early? Would love to meet.
Eydie Keener Jul 06, 2014 at 01:04 PM

Yes Sylvia, Kimmie and I will be arriving in San Jose at 12:30. We will be coming in from IAD on United Airlines. Looking forward to meeting you.


Jane Alamo Jun 17, 2014 at 05:46 PM

Anyone out there taking the July 10th trip to Costa Rica? Love to get in touch.


Joan Hammond Jun 10, 2014 at 06:12 PM

My husband and I will be taking our grandson on the July 7th trip to Costa Rica. Anyone else on that trip?
Jane Alamo Jun 19, 2014 at 02:09 PM

my grandson, Dominic, age 15, and I are taking the July 10th trip. I'm not sure how the two groups interact but would love to know if you have any tips on the trip; raingear, using cash or credit card etc
Joan Hammond Jun 19, 2014 at 05:35 PM

Hi, Jane, we are bring raincoats, and will use debit cards and credit cards. I doubt we will interconnect with your group as we start on different dates. Have fun.
Jane Alamo Jun 20, 2014 at 02:25 PM

Jane Alamo Jun 20, 2014 at 02:27 PM

Hi Joan, Thanks for the info. I hope you have a great time also
