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!

Barbara Grinnell Mar 08, 2015 at 06:46 PM

I'm signed up for the April 24 session and am planning to extend my stay for 5 or 6 days and do a little train traveling. Any recommendations?

Ruth Dickinson Mar 02, 2015 at 02:23 PM

Hi, I am signed up for Independent Barcelona for May 22-30 and hope to arrive on Thursday May 21. Anyone else arriving on that date?

Jacqueline Glenz Feb 22, 2015 at 10:49 AM

Is anyone flying out of Philly for Barcelona on April 10? I'm going solo and would like to meet a travelmate.

William Peters Feb 19, 2015 at 09:49 PM

I am interested in hearing some classical music some evening or dropping in on an organ rehearsal some afternoon. Anyone else interested in scoping out the possibilities?
Rebecca Dixon Mar 27, 2015 at 03:36 PM

Dear William. I've just read up on the fabulous Palau de Musica Catalunya and looked at their web site photos. On Wed, 4/29, there is a flamenco & opera concert. Must be good; cost is 53 euros. Starts at 9:30pm. Despite cost and late start, it interests me. How about you?

William Peters Feb 19, 2015 at 09:46 PM

I'm flying in on Saturday the 21 on United from Newark at 9 am. Anyone else going to be looking for a cab about this time... for us to share?
