Hi Folks,
I'll be joining the Nov 7 - 15 Barcelona program. Arriving early morning of Nov 8th from independent trip in Amsterdam.

Bob Quilitch Oct 14, 2014 at 01:49 PM

Greetings Fellow Scholars. I am scheduled for the Barcelona program starting November 8. Anyone else going? After that, I plan to train to Madrid, Bilbao and return home from San Sebastian on November 22. Looking forward to getting on that 747 in Dallas for London.
Toni Kestenbaum Oct 15, 2014 at 03:03 PM

You will adore Barcelona!! We just return Saturday evening. It was a fabulous trip. We spent 5 days in Barcelona prior to the program and participated in RS's Best of Portugal program before that. You plans sound terrific. I was last in Madrid in 1961!

Greetings fellow travelers! I'm leaving Dulles Airport (DC)on Lufthansa Oct 3 around 5 p.m., transferring in Frankfort Saturday morning. Is anyone else on that flight, or making that transfer? Would like to find company to transfer from airport to hotel, and possibly do some sightseeing near the hotel Saturday afternoon before we meet as a group.

Hello all! My husband Gary and I will be on the Oct. 14 trip. Nice to see others going also. Gary is interested in music in Barcelona, especially jazz! I am interested in everything there! Looking forward to the visit. Would love to hear from others on the trip as well! Lynn Frank

Seek out a guitar concert. there were lots of them when we were in Barcelona last week. We attended one in Santa maria del Pi, but there are others as well.

My husband and I will be on the Independent Barcelona trip that starts October 3. However, we will be participating on The Best of Portugal program before flying to Barcelona. We will be in Portugal from September 20-29 and then fly to Barcelona on the 29th, planning to spend a few days taking day-trips out of Barcelona before joining the RS folks. We live in Philadelphia, and have a direct flight home from Barcelona, courtesy of US Airways.
