Profile Information

What is your favorite place in Europe so far?
Lucca or London...
Where would you most like to go next?
Prague, and back to Lucca and London. We are getting a little old for travel however and don't want to drive over there any more. Although we have driven all over Europe many times, I would rather figure out a trip that will give me access to trains and public transportation. Any ideas for an Untour for an old fart and his wife?
Tell us about one of your favorite places to stay on an Untour. Do you have a favorite host? Apartment? Village?
Unfortunately and sadly, we have never been on an Untour. Our many travels to Europe have been independent and with the help of Rick Steves have been great successes. But we are looking forward to an Untour in the near future, if our health holds out.
Ci Vediamo!
Do you have any special interests or hobbies that you follow when you travel?
I love old architecture. But other than that I guess we just look around at as much as we can. We have not purchased a digital camera yet so that might be the next item of interest for our next trip. Then we can upload our pics to the cafe.
When you upload photos to Untours Cafe, you are also giving Untours permission to use the photos in their promotional material (with credit to you)
Wish I had one...soon maybe
Which Untours have you already done?
Sadly, none
What advice would you give others considering an Untour?
Take one!
What is your favorite Untour? (so far)
We wish we had one. Maybe in 2009...
We have albums full of pictures of our trips from a few years ago. I would like to share them with Cafe members. I know how to scan them to my computer but then what? How do I get them into the Cafe/My Page.

Welcome to the Cafe, Ed. We're long time Untourists and hope you'll try an Untour sometime soon. They're pretty amazing and pretty much give you all the independence of travel that you seem to enjoy. Switzerland ranks way up there if you're ready to forego the driving. We've done all of the Swiss Untours and have some trip logs posted if you'd like to check them out on my page. I like Rick Steves too and his books accompany us on most all our trips - we definitely share his philosophy of travel. Our next Untour is to Prague in June - so if you have any questions on that one after that, I'd be delighted to give you my input! A digital camera a few years ago was one of my best ever purchases - hope you get one soon! Would love to see pictures from wherever you choose to explore next...just keep traveling!

Glad to have you as a new friend, Ed. Age is so relative; I have a feeling you're very young for yours!!

Frank and I are happy Untourists. This year's trip will be our 6th. There are lots of Untours just made for you where you don't have to drive and have lots of architecture to admire as well as beautiful scenery. Let's start with Swiss Oberland or Swiss Heartland. Great transportation by bus, train, car and boat. No car needed. Then in Italy, you could check out the new Florence Untour or perhaps the Rome Untour with metro pass. In France, there is the wonderful Paris Untour with metro/train pass. Austria offer both Salzburg and Vienna with train passes. So okay, there are more to choose from but these are the ones I know the most about. Check out the Destinations links above. Also if interested, check out some of My Photo Albums from our Untour trips.
Hope you find an Untour for you. Go do it while you can!!!

For some reason I get links to 2 different pages for you. Guess that's why your "friends" disappeared. They are on one page but not the other. I will ask Powen to check it out for you. Meanwhile I would be glad to be your friend.

Hi Ed, it looks like you have signed up twice for the Untours Cafe (if you're the same Ed?). Once in September of last year and then this account. You also used two different email addresses, one at sbcglobal and the other one is silcon.com

You may want to get rid of one or the other to keep this simpler. Let me know if you need any help with that!

I can delete your old profile, if you would like. I'm glad you've joined us again, for sure!

Hi Ed! I'm glad you're a DIY-er, I am too most of the time. I believe if you can still log into the old account (you just have to remember the email address you used and the password), then you can follow the directions here. Let me know of course if you need any help with that.

As for email addresses, you will have to ask that person directly if it's just someone on the Untours Cafe. Probably by private message, as it's better to keep your email address so that it's not visible (and can't be stolen by spammers).

Ed, I saw your comment on Marlene's wall. You never signed up for the Untours Cafe using your SBC Global email address, so you can't log in using that.

You've actually created two Untours Cafe accounts, one using your gmail address (that's the more recent one), and one using your silcon address (which is the older one that I previously offered to delete for you).

Just log in only with your Gmail address and you should be fine.

Let me know if you need any more help!

You need to be a member of Untours Cafe to add comments!
