    Beverly, what is the family rate for cruises. In otherwords how much percentage do you get off.

    April 28, 2013

  • Tootsie R.

    Five showed up... A GR8 FIVE!

    April 28, 2013

  • Tootsie R.

    Balboa Park Sports Complex; driveway to the parking lot is off of BURBANK, at approximately Balboa. It is shady and grassy, but no tables or chairs so bring chairs, blankets. This is NOT the LAKE part of Balboa Park. Call if you need help finding me N my red station wagon and mylar balloon at 4 P. If no one shows up by 5 P I will split.

    THE MAP FOR BALBOA PARK ABOVE ON THIS PAGE IS ACCURATE
    Have fun, Beverly! Daughter working for Princess is GR8! My upcoming trip is on Holland America. Jeff: Are you coming this Sunday? I have run about half of this trip before and already have plenty to talk about. I will be gone May + June, that is why I found THIS SUNDAY date to be desirable. Hoping people show up at Balboa Park Sports Complex; driveway to the parking lot is off of BURBANK, at approximately Balboa. It is shady and grassy, but no tables or chairs so bring chairs, blankets. This is NOT the LAKE part of Balboa Park. Call if you need help finding me N my red station wagon and mylar balloon at 4 P. If no one shows up by 5 P I will split. Call me if lost (or whatever) 760) 680-3233. Valerie AKA The Tootsie Roll

    Next month we will be taking a 22 day cruise of Eastern Europe... including Italy, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, the Greek Islands and then on to Barcelona. May stay in NYC for a couple days to break up the flight over... 17 hours to Istanbul from L.A.... UGH!!!
    I have a bad cold right now or would suggest a meet up this week or next. Hopefully I will be done with the mess if / when someone wants to plan it for. This sounds like a lot of very interesting people who are actually ABLE to do some traveling. Very excited about it. Donn and Valerie AKA The Tootsie Roll

    1 · April 18, 2013

    • Tootsie R.

      This particular cruise leaves from Istanbul MAY 17th. If interested in it you should go to Vacations to Go or CruCon.com and look for Mediterranean cruises and this one is Holland America's Noordam ship. It is 22 days from start to finish in Rome. Check it out, Aura. V

      April 25, 2013

  • Jeff A.

    How about an Eastern Canada Fall Cruise on Holland America or Celebrity?

    April 19, 2013

    • Denise K.

      I have ALWAYS wanted to go on a Fall Foilage trip!!

      April 19, 2013

    • Tootsie R.

      We are looking to do that this Fall.... We will be traveling on Holland America Noordam next month, leaving on a 22 day cruise from Istanbul. Maybe people in this group can see the Fall colors on the same cruise this year... That'd be fun!

      April 25, 2013

  • Barry

    Yes, the official meeting is May 21 at 7 p.m. The meeting Sunday at 4 p.m. is just an optional get-acquainted thing for anyone interested. No attendance taken. No motions passed. No business transacted. Just a chance to say, "Hi."

    April 23, 2013

    • Barry

      We have only one organizer and that brave and benevolent person is Beverly Holt. She has arranged for our first official meeting to be at 7 p.m. May 21 in the condo rec room at 10201 Mason Ave., Chatsworth. Hope you can make it.

      April 24, 2013

    • catarinaxo

      Alright, thanks Barry. I will put it on my calendar

      April 25, 2013

  • Denise K.

    This group has really started out on a weird foot. I'm with you Tootsie..I love sense of humor. Can't make it this weekend. But will be at next. I have a trip to plane to France, and i would love all the input I can get before I book it!!!!

    April 25, 2013

  • Tootsie R.

    DANG. The map is the one shown ABOVE for Balboa Park CLICK ON BLUE (edit map) to see it

    April 25, 2013

  • Tootsie R.

    Maybe next time, Susan. The map I just received via e-mail for this event is ACCURATE. Look for the driveway into the Balboa Park GYM parking lot on BURBANK (where, for some reason) it says COUCH POTATO. Look for the older woman with a red station wagon and mylar balloon.

    LETZ TALK TRAVEL!!! Bring something to sit on or lay on.

    This is NOT in the LAKE part of Balboa Park... but it is in the parking lot off of Burbank Blvd on the other side of Balboa Blvd. By the tennis courts and baseball fields BUT in the parking lot behind the GYM off of BURBANK BLVD. Barry and I will have a mylar balloon overhead. LET'S TALK TRAVEL 4 PM SUNDAY. 760)[masked] CALL IF U CANNOT FIND US, K? Valerie

    Sorry can't make it BC I'm going to an event @ 6 PM-----

    April 24, 2013

  • Tootsie R.

    All Indians and no chiefs... what is really funny is that we all want to travel, but we can't even get it together HERE. I forget that my sense of humor is not evident via the keyboard... I am a happy joker. I WILL be at Balboa Park this Sunday... My phone number is 760) 680-3233. I have been to London, Paris, Amsterdam, all over Italy, Istanbul, Athens, Rio de Janeiro, all over Mexico (but not inland recently), Alaska, the Panama Canal cruise, much of the U.S. Love to yak travel. Hope to meet some of you this Sunday. WHERE in the park, Barry? I will still have the balloon, but... Valerie

    April 24, 2013

    • Barry

      There's a parking lot with an entrance on the north side of Burbank, just west of Balboa. Let's raise the balloon there.

      April 24, 2013

    • Tootsie R.

      Sending you a personal message, Barry...

      notice this is a SFV/LA meetup :)

      April 22, 2013

    • catarinaxo

      lol, I think I agree with analuna. Too many chiefs, and not enough Indians.

    Vegas to visit ailing Mom.

    April 23, 2013

  • Pamela L.

    I am so sorry but I will be on vacation.

    April 23, 2013

  • Barry

    Thanks Patty for the concrete suggestion. I second the motion. Balboa Park. How about 4 p.m.?

    April 21, 2013

    • Tootsie R.

      Oh Look! It's a scavenger hunt (for the balloon on the red station wagon) and then a great yak about traveling plans, dreams, experiences. P.S. My car is old, but has new red metallic paint. COME FIND ME.

      April 23, 2013

    We are preparing for a trip to the Dordogne region in France for the end of May. Any one has been there? Any recommendations of best towns to stay at ?

    April 23, 2013

  • Tootsie R.

    THIS SUNDAY FOUR O'CLOCK ENCINO'S BALBOA PARK LAKE I WILL HAVE A BRIGHTLY COLORED MYLAR BALLOON HANGING OUT THE WINDOW OF MY OLD RED STATION WAGON. I WILL TRY TO BE PARKED IN A VISIBLE AREA OR AT LEAST UNDER A LIGHT FIXTURE IF THERE IS ONE. IF NO ONE SHOWS AFTER 5 PM ON THE DOT, I WILL LEAVE. C'MON PEOPLE... LETZ GET THIS PARTY STARTED. Now if you are thinking "Why is she shouting at us?" because the early part of the message is all in CAPS.... maybe thatz your reason for not coming. This group should be for people looking to COME TALK, not talk about not coming. VALERIE AKA THE TOOTSIE ROLL 760)[masked]

    The leader of this group should decide the time and place for the meeting, those who want to attend will make the effort and show up. It's very difficult to have every one in the group to agree when picking a place.

    The leader should set the time and place for the meeting and those who want to attend will RSVP and show up. It's very hard to get everybody to agree in picking a place.

    April 23, 2013

  • Pamela L.

    Since I live in Long Beach I will only be able to attend the meeting only if they are on a Saturday or Sunday.

    At last a set date & time but I will not be able to join you next Sunday. I have another appointment. I'm really disappointed because I am very interested in joining the group & meeting people to travel with. I look forward to hearing how it goes and when the next meeting might be scheduled.

    April 21, 2013

  • Jan

    Just a thought--so many groups are centered around town or the Westside/Gendale/Pasadena. It would really be nice if some of the meetings can be in either the San Fernando Valley or the Conejo Valley for a change.

    April 21, 2013

  • Jan

    as I will be in London April 29 and won't return until early June. I will miss your meetings but looking forward to catching up after I return.

    April 21, 2013

  • Denise K.

    Yeah Patty!!! Yes thats fine. Balboa Park in the Valley right?

    April 21, 2013

  • Patty F.

    ok, someone put out a suggestion of place to meetup to organize. i live on the westside..any ideas anyone? how does next sunday..late afternoon..at balboa park?

  • laurie d.

    Tell me where and when, and I will try very hard to be there!

    April 20, 2013

  • Denise K.

    Ok guys, lets get this ball rolling. I am a little confused , as I was asked for a suggestion for a meet up and I did suggest, but I thought the organizer plans these things. I don't want to step on anyones toes. However, it looks like the interest is there...so any suggestions for an initial group intro?And is Beverly Holt available?

    April 19, 2013

  • Tootsie R.

    That sounds interesting, Jeff...

    April 19, 2013

  • AL R.

    Hold my spot. Leaving for Orlando and other unknown parts of Florida in a few days. Back in about 2 weeks. Don't go anywhere I wouldn't go.

    I would love to, but need to work. Sorry :(

    Hope the date works out.

    April 18, 2013

  • Denise K.

    I just put out as a suggestion. Am I supposed to plan it? LOl.. I can, just never have and not sure where a good meeting spot would be, I am open to anything. I would just like to see this get going!!! Is there a group host to this group? My kids just gave me a trip to wherever I want to go for my Big 60 birthday, and perhaps I could incorporate it with people from this group, as I have a hard time finding people to travel.

    April 17, 2013

  • Jan

    I hope you have your first meet up soon as I will be in London for the month of May and wont return until June4.
