We'll have time! I'll be just back from my Oregon coast trip, if I survive the heat of the first inland stay.

Would love to hear about travels in Greece! I have made a concerted effort this summer to be a tourist in my own state and have a few mini trips to share if there is time.

Hi Catherine, I have a scheduling conflict (my fault!), so I won't be able to join you tomorrow. I look forward to next month.

Today's slide presentations on Oregon and Santorini went together surprisingly well -- thanks to both CWsocial and travelmom for keeping our travel dreams nourished!

Agree! We have been to many of the places covered but it was such fun to see them through the eyes of others. And of course, we all love pictures of Farrah!

Avi and CWsocial do such a good job of organizing these meetings and I feel so lucky to be a long distance East Bay group member! Oregon is definitely on my list now!

I knew nothing about the Oregon area before last night, I think I'd have loved that crater edge drive - sorry you didn't, CWSocial - and I loved the pix of Farrah. I see who rules your house.

Sorry I missed the Greece program. Another place I've never been but have wanted to.

Thanks for pulling it together, CWSocial, and thanks to Avi for the tech.

Hey Nigel, I think most people would love that crater edge drive and wouldn't think much about it. I'm usually fearless, and can often rationalize away the fear of heights. But my recent road trips have exposed me my Krypton. Very annoying.

I'm considering an idea to have a meeting in which we discuss Germany. Not a presentation necessarily, but a discussion of places people have been and where they recommend for travelers who may not have been there.

Nigel, I know you've been there. Would you be up for such a discussion?

I've only been in one area of Germany, but enjoyed every town - Frankfurt, Erfurt, Dresden, Nuremberg and Bamberg.

Who else would like to hear about and share their enthusiasm for Germany? Are there other countries that you'd like to "enthuse" about?

yes I have a few places in Germany up my sleeve. Could be some that few people will have heard of....

I’m never been to Germany and know little about it. So I’d like to hear about Germany.

Nigel, excellent! Terrific Valerie, I'd like to hear more about Germany as well.

As you can imagine, Ed could talk hours about Germany. Maybe even be on-screen for more than a few seconds. Multi-year stay in Munich, and visits to many other places from his Munich and Frankfurt bases.
By the time we meet next we will have taken Amtrak to Reno for a weekend.

We have also been to Germany. If we have been somewhere that others have not visited, if there's something I can add, I can chime in.
