Doing Independent Barcelona starting Oct 2nd. Our second RS. Canyon De Chelly was our first two years ago.

Susan Hughes Jul 23, 2015 at 08:39 AM

We (2) are arriving at 9:05 from Newark, NJ on October 9th. Is anyone arriving a day early and like to share a cab to the Hotel Catalonia Eixample?

Marilyn Hamly Jul 15, 2015 at 04:33 PM

I am going on the Oct 9-17 independent Barcelona program. I am arriving on the 9th, but don't know where I'm staying yet as our group hotel is full that night. I'm also hoping to take a train after the program to Seville for the Flavors of Spain program. However, it has yet to have enough participants to be a go.

Has anyone had experience with renting a car with driver for a day trip to Girona, Besalu, Figueres, Pujol and Cadaques (if it is doable)? Is anyone on the Oct. 9-17 Independent Barcelona program interested in exploring this with another couple?

Virginia Schorr Jun 14, 2015 at 01:18 AM

Hi. I'm leaving June 18 from JFK for the Barcelona trip. Anyone else arriving in Barcelona on June 19th?

Ann Sonders Apr 20, 2015 at 08:07 PM

My husband David & I are leaving from Phila on April 24 for the Barcelona trip. Can't wait to meet everyone! Anyone else flying from Philly?
Rebecca Dixon Apr 21, 2015 at 09:54 AM

Ann, I leave April 24 from Chicago, connecting with Lufthanza in Frankfurt--flight 1126 departing at 9:50am. Per chance, are you on the same flight? Rebecca
Ann Sonders Apr 21, 2015 at 10:33 AM

Hi Rebecca. We're flying directly from Philly, arriving in Barcelona at 9 A M on Saturday, so we'll see you at the hotel.

Linda McIntosh Apr 17, 2015 at 06:10 PM

My partner Ted and I will be part of the June 19 group. We'll be leaving from Boston. Anyone else going from Boston?

Marcia Merritt Mar 30, 2015 at 05:13 PM

I am attending the April 24 session and leaving from Miami International Airport. Is anyone else leaving from that airport?
Timothy Flood Apr 04, 2015 at 09:21 PM

Hi Marcia, my wife Sandy and I are taking a connecting flight in Miami: Brit Airways #1514, scheduled to leave 6:25 PM EST. Will you be on the same flight?
Marcia Merritt Apr 05, 2015 at 08:53 AM

The Brit flight is a codeshare with American #112 so we will be on the same flight. If we do not find each other at the airport, my seat is 34B. Perhaps we can take a taxi together to the hotel.
Timothy Flood Apr 05, 2015 at 11:50 AM

Cool! Sandy seat 29E, I'm seat 29C. See you there. Good idea re taxi.
Timothy Flood Apr 24, 2015 at 06:20 PM

Marcia, we are at gate D16 now.
Marcia Merritt Apr 24, 2015 at 06:57 PM

At last we meet!
