Jim and Gerri ... my wife and I are also on the 19th trip. We are from Evanston, IL and like you, this will be our second trip with RS.
Geraldine, my wife is also a swimmer who plans to bring along her swim suit.

Geraldine Davis Aug 26, 2014 at 08:38 PM

Are people bringing bathing suits, or will swimming not be an option?
Kathleen Clarke Aug 26, 2014 at 09:18 PM

Pool at the first hotel so mine is coming. Think I'll need a swim after 12 hours in a coach airline seat!
Saralea Altman Aug 26, 2014 at 10:32 PM

But don't plan on swimming in the river.

Jim and Gerri Schinckle are going on the September 19 trip. We are from Burnsville, MN (suburb of Minneapolis). This is our second RS trip-went to New Zealand and Australia last March. Anxious to meet everyone!!
Geraldine Davis Aug 26, 2014 at 08:38 PM

Nice to know there will be two "Geri's", although I use only 1 "r". Look forward to meeting you also!

Saralea Altman Aug 15, 2014 at 04:40 PM

Virginia Braski, it appears we are roommates on the Sept 4 trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. I am flying out of San Fran, are you?

Rick Davis Aug 04, 2014 at 02:05 PM

My wife and I are on the Mekong Delta trip beginning September 19. We are leaving from Chicago. Just curious to know who else is on this particular trip?

Rick Davis Jul 30, 2014 at 08:46 AM

My wife and I are taking the Mekong Delta trip in September. You who have already taken this trip, do you advise we convert some American dollars to Dong before leaving the States? If so, how much do you suggest? Any advice you have regarding the Vietnamese currency is welcomed.
Louetta Schwab Jul 30, 2014 at 08:59 AM

No bother to convert here, we had no problems with US dollars.. This may have been our favorite trip so far....we've been on 9 RS trips and 3 with other companies. You will not be in Vietnam very long. Most is Cambodia. While in Saigon, you really should visit the french ice cream parlor. Your guide can help you with directions, we walked. They serve art!!! Enjoy your trip!
Judith Hrycak Jul 30, 2014 at 10:14 AM

I agree with Louetta. Had no problem with US dollar, and also was our best trip yet! we thought we may even want to go again in a few years. So much to see and enjoyed the people in Cambodia, They are so very nice.

I'm going on the Aug. 27, 2014 trip - anyone out there going to be on same trip?
Sue Stinson Jul 27, 2014 at 04:10 PM

We are: Sue and Jim from Greensboro, North Carolina. eare newly retired (a year ago) and this is our first RS trip.
Ellin Ifft Jul 28, 2014 at 12:24 PM

Great - I've taken several RS trips and been very happy with them. RS suggests we put the red RS luggage tag on our carry-ons so we can identify each other which I've found very helpful on these long trips. We can introduce ourselves in San Francisco while waiting to board by looking for other red tags.
