Table for two, s'il vous plait. I spent today sorting through my warm sweaters for the December trip.
See you on the 9th.

Mais oui, madame! I'm getting caught up in the idea of a Christmas markets trip, so I'm looking forward to hearing more about yours.

(And how you pack for it. I thought packing "light" and having enough layers for fall was tricky enough.)

Rats! We will be in Cambridge on 9 Nov and Oxford on 7 Dec!

Hope to make it someday soon!

Rats is right. Well, it seems you'll have lots of good travel stories to share when you do make it! I'll be looking forward to those.

I’ll be there, with my May trip plans to discuss...Belgium is out and here’s a hint: I’m going to a neighbor of Hungary 😉

Great, Barbara, can't wait to see your new books!

Christa, there are some pretty interesting options there. Hmmm, Croatia? Romania? Looking forward to the surprise!

I've just booked a Rick Steves tour! (My first.) Let's hope I can find sensible flights. I should know by next weekend if it's a "go."

There are 6 of us confirmed. And plenty of room for more at the café!

I agree, Christine, what a nice group of travelers! I really enjoyed the conversations and the photo albums. And now I'm going shopping for some walking boots.

Good luck in your Christmas market travels. I can't wait to hear about the markets and see what you bring back. And my fingers are crossed for Lauri and Ed, that you will manage through the train strikes and enjoy your winter holiday!
