Also if I didn't purchase the insurance and would like to how do I do that? Thank You.
Here's what I do. Though I'll admit I don't think it's the only/right way. I send back all of the paperwork now except the airline part. Mostly because my desk eats paperwork. Then later when I get the airline part squared away I fill that out and put my info on a coversheet and fax it. As for trip insurance I think Kevin sent us info on that that's in an email somewhere. I'm pretty sure he said you can add it all the way up until the trip is paid for in full. HTH

I'm glad you liked it! I will tell you that Shutterfly does not make making these books easy. I feel like it's sort of how Apple is "intuitive" and I think for whom because I don't know what the carp is going on. But anyway... You have your Shutterfly account and you upload the scapbook pages just like you would regular photos, and then you sort of dig around until you find the make a photo book section and you'll select all of the pages you've uploaded. Now they have helpfully preloaded their scrapbook with their pages for folks that just want to load photos. So this next part is a real pain. You have to trade all of their pages out for the 12x12 blank pages, and I pretty much do that as I go along instead of all at once. But instead of the 12x12 selection being towards the front of the things you can pick, it's not. grrrr... so you have to dig for it. But after a bit you'll get into it and it'll be done and you'll move on. Usually my book winds up costing $150, but around the holidays they will do a coupon for 40/50 percent off and I strike then! One of the things I really like about it is that I know my book is safe with them and if, God forbid, something happens to mine here at the house I can always replace it. Unlike my paper ones which would just go up in flames, or flood, or whatever.

So was that way too much information? Hope that helps anyway

Thank you so much for the awesome advice. I think I will just do that, send everything back except the airline stuff and then fax that once I have made my airline plans. Thank you again so much. Jenn

Hi Wallis,

Unfortunately. I have no control over cab fares in LA (my powers don't extend that far).

As others have posted....Super Shuttle is an option. Cab sharing is also an option and using the free ABD transfers always works. You just have to play by their rules.

As this is 18 months away......you have plenty of time to research airfare and transfers if you don't want to use the complimentary ABD transfers.

Okay....I'm just saying....folks on this trip might want to add a post night to this trip.

As we are close to the holidays, and post nights are based on availability....they may disappear pretty quickly.

Pre and post nights are added to your balance due and can be canceled up until they are paid. Once paid, they are non-refundable.

Those of you who have traveled with us before will back me up on the fact that I don't usually suggest that guests add post nights unless I think there is a good reason (like never having enough time in Venice).

So....when I suggest that you add an extra night at the end of this trip....before the nights disappear....I must think I have a good reason.....right?

Just sayin.....

I added some extra nights as well. Do we still do things as a group for those couple of days? That would be nice. I mean I know that we are no longer on the adventure but was just curious if we would still plan a few meals together, etc.

Not everyone stays for additional nights after the Adventure ends.

Those that stay may choose to plan meals/events/activities together, or they may choose to enjoy the parks etc. on their own.

You just never know what might happen.

This is a little sad to hear. Hopefully we will be able to plan some things together, it gets kind of lonely when you are solo.

Hmm. We were thinking of adding a few days before, but now may have to add some days after, too! Steve's sister lives in CA, so maybe we'll look at spending Christmas with her!

we were definitely going to do 3 nights extra before the trip but maybe will have to think about adding another night after based on what "might" be going on...what suspense for 18 months! LOL It will all come down to airfare....that time of year I'm already worried about how much its going to be!

I know this tour is sold out, but...

Is there a waiting list for this tour? I'd love to be on it, if there is one.
