Coeur d'Alene/Spokane Travel Group - November 5

Our next meeting will be Saturday, November 5. If you live in the area or are visiting for the day, welcome!

Meet at our usual spot at 10am - Woops! French Bakery, 119 N 4th St, in downtown Coeur d'Alene.

I’m excited to hear about Pam’s recent RS Best of Italy tour and others’ recent travels. Any new plans for 2023? Also, let’s share a topic if we have time that I don’t think we have discussed: how do you specifically select your lodging? How do you prioritize your criteria, such as price, location, day/evening restaurants nearby, distance from transportation modes, etc.?

I’ll be there!!

And yes, even still a teeny bit jet lagged I booked a Eurostar ticket for April - Paris to London, lol. Weird occurrence which I’ll mention…the website said ticketing was not open for my date until next week but I was able to book in the Eurostar app.

We might have some new folks I met in Venice!

Leslie! I hope you are having vibrant sunshine because it's a gray January day here right now. Oh wait!! It's only October, hahaha! Anyway...if you've got sun, enjoy it!

Aimee, I will bring that Eddie Bauer shirt if you want to look at it.

And Jean, I was just having a discussion with myself over my Paris hotel choices and I'll tell you how I made my decision, lol.

Just giving this a boot back to the 1st page on the All Topics view!

Looks like a chance of rain/snow mix Saturday morning although 4 days out is too far for me to believe a forecast, lol.

I would love to come to one of your meetings and hear all your great travel stories!! But alas, even though I have been in Spokane and Coeur d'Alene (we went to Whoops! and loved it) for the last 2 weeks, we leave on Thursday. Back to sunny Florida...I'll be missing the snow that is supposed to arrive just when we leave. (We folks in Florida LOVE it when it snows)

Well, darn it all Lucky Girl! We'd loved to have met you....being a former N. Florida resident back in the dark ages it would have been fun to chat. Let us know if you come back to the area...we can do a non-meet up meet up, hahaha!

Thanks for the invite, if our plans or flight gets cancelled you can count me in! Pam you helped me back in 2019 when we were debating our trip for RS Southern England vs 14 day England!

I think all of us lucky enough to travel could call ourselves Lucky girl or Lucky guy!! I will be back and would love to come, my son and daughter in law live in Spokane. Lucky me :)

I just learned that this group is meeting regularly. I will definitely plan to join everyone beginning in January. Both the November and December meetings fall just as I am leaving and returning from a trip to Antarctica and surroundings.

Oh, that is excellent! You’ll have to time your next visit so it’s over the 1st Saturday and if not maybe we can call an emergency meeting, lol!!

Mary….you are so funny!! Of course cappuccinos will be available! I keep hoping for their red velvet cookies.

Maybe I should start advertising our group as the meeting to come to the French Bakery! Come for the macarons, the pastries, the red velvet cookies, the espresso & cappuccino! ….oh, and by the way, we might talk travel, too. LOL!

See you tomorrow! I just signed up tonight for a 2023 RS tour! Yeah!
