Now the $$ is losing daily against the Euro. Per my post below I have until 12/31 to cancel my R/S tour and get my deposit back. Still no job but maybe something after 1st of the year. Just hoping something will finally go positive for a change. Thanks to everyone for your advice.
Have been planning my 19 day 09 trip to France, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland for a year now. Trip is not until 9/09 but have booked airfare using advantage miles that I have been saving for 8 years, have booked several hotels, 2 days with Battlebus, and also paid deposit for 12 Day R/S tour. Everything going great until last Friday and I get laid off from work along with a few others. I hated that but more than anything hate the thought of missing this trip as I have been thinking of it for years but planning for over 12 months. Almost went postal with my boss. Have not canacelled anything yet and won't for while but this is the pitts. This trip was my 65th birthday present to myself.
