re: Costco Travel and/or Trafalgar Tours - hungryone on 7/21/17 at 7:50 pm
[quote]We generally like to hunker down in one place for at least 2.5-3 days. [/quote] I prefer at least a week, and I'd rather have two. I wanna settle in, see how the locals live, feel the rhythms of a place. I abhor speeding from "sight" to "sight", as though marking off a checklist or a bingo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Ways to generate side money - hungryone on 7/21/17 at 7:06 pm
If you're already working 50 hrs a week, your side gig better be pretty damn flexible or something that can be accomplished outside of core business hours. I can't imagine that software sales will generate much income when it has to be conducted in the evenings.......Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Why don't more wives demand their own retirment account? - hungryone on 7/21/17 at 7:04 pm
I know this board (well, this whole site) is mostly men, but I think your initial assumption--that most nonworking spouses don't have their own funds--is an antiquated one. Perhaps this is true among boomer & older women, but every damn GenX woman I know is either stacking her own cash, squirreling...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Munich - London Tips/Itinerary Help - hungryone on 7/21/17 at 6:52 pm
The old historic core of Munich is worth a visit....Marienplatz, with the Glockenspiel, is the heart of the city. Time your visit to see the mechanical clock's performance. Plenty of English speaking ex pat tour guides hang out in Marienplatz; you can jump into a "free" tour and pay the guide a gr...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Costco Travel and/or Trafalgar Tours - hungryone on 7/21/17 at 2:33 pm
In my experience, you can always piece it together better and cheaper. Group bus tours are NOT my cup of tea....I can see how they might appeal to the very young and very old, or for a person with extremely limited travel experience or mobility issues who needs assistance with luggage and cannot ma...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Anyone prefer driving than flying? - hungryone on 7/20/17 at 4:59 pm
Years and years of a long commute has pretty much ruined me for road trips. Flying is always my choice. I have a brother that will drive cross country, and es always pestering me to drive somewhere or other. No thanks....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Booking Train from Florence to Rome - hungryone on 7/20/17 at 4:54 pm
I doubt you will need to book in advance. This is a frequent rout....I bought my same day ticket out of a machine at the St Maria Novella train station in Florence. It even had English instructions....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Normandy in fall - hungryone on 7/20/17 at 12:09 pm
Juice, the Calvados & Camembert are definitely part of the attraction for me; better half wants the military history, I want the cheese/butter/apples. I looked at the pics of Etretat--lovely--and I definitely want to seek out small producers on the byways. Sorry, Provence, maybe next time. Tr...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Florida Keys - hungryone on 7/20/17 at 12:03 pm
If you want nice beaches, don't go to the Keys. Seriously...it's coral & coquina, rocky....some resorts have hauled in sandy spots, but it's not a wide, sandy beach place. Bonefishing, snorkeling, sunsets....but it's not the FL Panhandle....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Help me plan a trip to Italy in December for Christmas - hungryone on 7/20/17 at 12:00 pm
1)Rome is full of religious orders offering simple pilgrims lodgings. These are usually affordable rooms, often in architecturally interesting buildings, with basic services. Simple lobbies, no bars or restaurants, but usually a communal breakfast room & simple breakfasts. They're scattered all a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Normandy in fall - hungryone on 7/19/17 at 3:44 pm
[quote]Tough choice...visiting the American cemetery in Normandy is one of the few things I think all Americans should do before they die. That said, I think there's more to do/see in Provence. Just IMO, I think 10 days in Normandy might be too long. [/quote] So now I'm thinking 5-7 days around N...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Normandy in fall - hungryone on 7/19/17 at 1:52 pm
Thanks so much--the Normandy option definitely will involve renting a car, and a stop at Giverny on the way out of Paris is on my potential itinerary. Still trying to decide whether I want another cool & wet vacation (went to Dublin area in February; it pretty much drizzled the entire time & neve...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Was I scammed or stupid? - hungryone on 7/19/17 at 10:19 am
You can't be mad at your bank....but this is a clear case where using a credit card would have allowed you to dispute the transaction, and using a debit card means you have little/no recourse. Live and learn.......Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Normandy in fall - hungryone on 7/19/17 at 9:51 am
Considering a fall trip to Normandy....DDay beaches, St. Malo, Mont St Michel, etc. Flying into/out of Paris, thinking of renting a car and meandering around the region. Tell me about your Normandy experiences. TIA. ETA: I'm trying to decide between fall in Normandy & fall in Provence....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)
re: Marrying woman with poor financial history - hungryone on 7/19/17 at 9:47 am
I'm not a big fan of prenups, but this is a case where you need to think very carefully about protecting yourself. You've excused her poor financial decisionmaking by saying that she's self employed in a field that pays inconsistently--lots of people, male and female, manage to not get underwater d...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Anyone care to share their cooking techniques/recipes for a steam/convection oven? - hungryone on 7/18/17 at 10:07 pm
Steam in the first 10-15 mins of a bake produces great bread. Try your hand at baguettes or a crusty hearth loaf....
