BOE 21 Day, May 12, Looking for tour mates

Anyone else on our tour? I wish we could grant permission for our contact info to be shared with our fellow travelers. No doubt there are reasons they don't do this which haven't occurred to us! We're arriving in Amsterdam on the 8th and assume some others may be arriving early as well. We're only checking in one day early to the hotel in Haarlem. I suppose we can leave our contact info at the front desk for other tour mates. Thanks, Shirley and Bruce

Hi Bruce & Shirley,

We aren't on your tour, but on the May 19, 2019 BOE. We only booked a couple of weeks ago and are getting very excited!

In a little more than a day, I guess we will have access to the "Tour Roster" which based on your message is names only.

We have watched many old Rick Steves videos in preparation.

We both bought new travel packs for the trip (I got an Osprey Farpoint 40 , and Peggy got an Osprey Fairview 40). We might have used existing luggage or packs but we hope to reuse these on an extended trip soon in SE Asia.

We have made reservations for an Eiffel Tower Tour, Day 20 at 1400.

I have carefully dissected my Rick Steves Best of Europe Tour Book and made a little folder to keep the 'current' portion. I wish I would have ordered a couple of Rick Steves Guidebook Page Binders (especially on sale for $1.00!).

We have ordered Vodafone NL SIM Cards from eBay based on Andrew H's advice. We get local SIM cards whenever practical.

I check the Forum everyday to see if anybody is on our tour! PM us if you have any can't miss experiences or meals.

Have a great trip!
