While exploring the unvisited sites would be adventurous and appealing, I would love to return to any of the 4 sites where we have been and enjoy the familiarity and experience the sites in more depth.
Tell us about one of your favorite places to stay on an Untour. Do you have a favorite host? Apartment? Village?
Nothing can beat the uniqueness of the Castle in Germany and the warmth of the von Crailsheims.
Do you have any special interests or hobbies that you follow when you travel?
Folk music events capture our attention...the Cheese Festival on Planplatten was a highlight as well as the Parade of History in Feuchtwangen.
Which Untours have you already done?
Provence, Swiss Heartland, The Castle, Tuscany South
What advice would you give others considering an Untour?
Seize the moment and Go! You'll be so glad that you did. Our regret was that we couldn't start earlier than at retirement.
It is truly an honor to have you join the Cafe. You can be an invaluable resource to the folks who are embarking on their first Untour.
Take your time and explore some of the photos, and videos.One of the most useful spots on the Cafe can be found by clicking the Destination tab. For example, maybe you are considering doing an Untour you haven't done yet (are there any !?) , you can post a question or start a discussion in the Greece Destination Group. As you know, people love to recommend their favorite apartment, village, restaurant, etc. from their past Untours. We count on "old Untour hands" like yourselves to join the destination groups where they have gone -- Provence, Switzerland, the Castle, Tuscany South --so as to provide advice for the newbies.
BTW, did you know that this weekend is the Castle's 800th birthday!!!!! Cathrin, our staff person, wrote a bit about it on the Main page, it is featured in the left hand column.
If you have a chance, you can also set up a picture of yourself for your page to personalize it a bit. It helps us put a face to the name.
If you run into any problems or have any question, you can send me a message or ask my colleagues, Powen, Sue, & Kim. We're here to help!
Hi Jean and Bob, we finally found you on the Untours Cafe site. We have had fun with it, once we, finally, switched from dial up to a DSL. Check back often, we love viewing the great videos and photos others have shared, plus occasionally we can contribute a thing or two, as I am sure you can also.
Sue and Eric
Hi Jean and Bob, glad you enjoyed seeing our smiling faces. Hope to see you have added your own soon. This photo was taken last fall at Hilton Head SC,and we were indeed sailing into the sunset-we do love it there-will soon be heading that way again in mid Sept. to spend our annual month.
Total relaxation-we even take the dog, so don't have to worry about her at home.
Would you believe all of our Venice stuff, plus photos, is still sitting in a basket waiting to be sorted and written. We will be sure to send you a copy of Eric's diary when he finally gets it written. We may just take it with us to Hilton Head-we have more time there than we do at home..
Do continue to keep up with the Cafe-we haven't tried adding any photos yet, but we plan to.
