Thanks man. I just discovered this also. Looks like I'm better off the book individually. I was pleased to see that the trip from Brussels to Paris is less expensive than London to Brussels. ...

Eurostar Tickets

Posted by CidCock on 4/16/24 at 10:20 am
Looking for advice on rail tickets. I'll be traveling with my wife and 2 children (10 and 4) in early June and will be leaving London for a 3 day visit to Ghent / Bruges en route to Paris. I have not traveled extensively in Europe so am generally unfamiliar with train travel. I was looking to boo...
Excellence Riveria Cancun is great. I am sure the other's are fantastic, but I can vouch for that one. El Dorado Royale and Casitas is also great, slightly below ERC IMO. ...

2017 in SC is something I will never forget. The haters out there will say it’s no big deal or whatever, but if you haven’t experienced it - you can’t explain it. I really wanted to come out, but couldn’t make it work. I’ve got calendar marked for Madrid in 2026. ...

I hear you guys and felt the same way leading up to 2017. It blew my mind, maybe I'm a simpleton, but it was in fact one of the coolest things I've ever seen. Report back after you witness it. It's an awe-inspiring event. If you are close to the path of totality and miss it, it's a major fa...
[quote]I actually feel sorry for all of the dads that planned a family event to travel and watch a 100% overcast sky get dark and then light again. We were lucky in SC 7 years ago to have totality and a clear sky….looks like today you need to be in Maine to have a shot at seeing anything. [/quote...

Thanks man. I picked it up on a good deal but intended to sell it because I thought it was too small, but it's grown on me and I wear it quite a bit. ...

I have a 99 TJ that I drive offroad (very little with 2 small kids) and a 2008 2Runner.... I would love to grab a ~2015 4runner and take the 5k for my 08, but the 15's are still going for like 25K, just seems crazy to me. ...

Portland Maine or Boston IMO. Both are great for a weekend. Portland slightly harder to get to and less to do, but good breweries and food. Boston is great, esepcially if you can catch a Sox game. NYC is great, but a little overwhelming and less relaxing for a romantic getway IMO. ...
