Happy New Year!

Just came across a message you evidently sent to Max B. way back in 2009, saying you were trying to convince me to form Hebrew-language group here. First I've ever heard of it.

I think that it is probably not worth the effort. Most Israelis who travel read English well enough to understand what it going on here.

Hey David, great to be back in touch!

That's good to hear about Iberia. I'm sure there's lots of things I could potentially blog about for them, in the UK and beyond.

I'll dig out a list of their destinations to start with and drop you a line with some topics soon.

Very happy to post here too, just a little worried about potential duplicate content penalties from Google, so any advice on getting round that will be greatly welcomed. :)

All the best

Hi David,

We run until mid-October.  
You are welcome any time.
I also have tours in Burlington, VT, a great food town
You are welcome on that one too.

Hi David,

Thanks for your email.
If you and your friends would like to join Saturday's tour as my guests I would love to have you.  Right now the tour has plenty of openings.  We start at the Farmer's Market at 1230 for a few tastings then to the Old Bryan Inn for an appetizer then on to Broadway for several stops.  You are welcome to join just for part of the tour too.  There is plenty of food along the way.
If you are looking for a good ethnic place for lunch your best bet is Boca Bistro, a tapas place that just opened a few weeks ago--right on Broadway--you will like it.  I've been there twice already. http://www.bocabistro.com/
Of course there are many others--Ravenous for crepes and a more informal menu, http://www.maestrosatthevandam.com/ which is not exactly ethnic but does have an innovative menu and Leon's for Mexican food--near the racetrack.
Let me know if you need more suggestions--there are plenty!

Thanks for the warm welcome!  I'm excited to connect on Tripatini and have more people learn about Contiki.

Unfortunately, I won't be attending the ASTA conference but it is possible members of our parent company, The Travel Corporation, will have some presence!

Thanks very much, David! Looking forward to learning more.

Hey Dave -- thanks for the note. Are you just coming to Chicago to visit or business? It's going to be HOT this weekend - high 90s so be prepared. I'm pretty tied up (event thurs, friends in Friday, gone Sat/Sun) so I likely wouldn't be able to connect. Where are you staying?

At 6:59pm on June 25, 2012, Margaret and John said…

Hey David! I have a bunch of different tours Thurs-Sun, so if there's something you like, I'd love to see you. If those times don't work, I'd still love to meet up for a coffee or something!

Hi David,

 Of course we are interested in news for family travel from Iberia. The best way to work with us is directly. You may contact me at editor@thefamilytravelfiles.com and we can swap useful information. Luckily we are in the process of posting new information on Barcelona this week so your timing is perfect.

Ciao! Nancy Nelson-Duac

Hey David!

So yes, I definitely have tours while you're here. The Disaster Tour is Friday and Sunday at 1:00 and the Redlight Tour is Thursday and Saturday at 4:00. So if one of those works I would love to have you! If the times don't quite work out right, let's definitely meet up! I'd love to chat travel and the best city in the world, Chicago! What fun, we'll have a good time either way.

Hi David: Great to hear from you again. Always happy to help any way I can. I'll be at TBEX Europe - if you're also planning to go, maybe we can get together. I plan to stay in the Costa Brave area for at least a week after the conference.

Hi David,

Thanks for your comment. We're currently in Egypt, so I don't know that post is actually going to get to our house.

If Iberia's interested in working with us on something more structured -- we're in Greece in September, so Spain would be within reach for us -- I'd be happy to throw some ideas around -- at over 20k uniques we're one of the larger family travel sites.

My son's 11, for the record. Cheers, Theodora
