Profile Information

What is your favorite place in Europe so far?
italy, italy, italy
Where would you most like to go next?
antarctica (not an untour but i'm going in november)
Tell us about one of your favorite places to stay on an Untour. Do you have a favorite host? Apartment? Village?
i'm so lucky, as i've had wonderful hosts all throughout italy - i still keep in touch with: wanda and her daughters (umbria), laudomia and her family (cafe in tuscany) and of course, my 2 favorite people who have become my friends are paolo and henrique (venice)
Do you have any special interests or hobbies that you follow when you travel?
photography - getting to know the locals in my neighborhood - really exploring the area - meeting new people
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)
not funny but this is touching - since i usually travel during my birthday, receiving flowers from the men in the cafe across from my apt. (venice); being given a birthday party from wanda and the girls (umbria); being sung happy b'day to by the locals in a cafe (tuscany) and being taken out for an elegant b'day dinner (venice)
Which Untours have you already done?
venice, venice carnevale, umbria, tuscany
What advice would you give others considering an Untour?
sign up immediately - it's truly an amazing experience becoming a "resident" (untourist): opening your "apt." with your key, having neighbors say hi, becoming a "regular" at a cafe or trattoria, really exploring an area and being a part of it, taking amazing photos and meeting special friends, and getting a bargain as well
What is your favorite Untour? (so far)
venice carnevale

HI Margorie!

Thanks for joining! I am not QUITE sure who you are, but welcome anyway? Give us a chance to get to know you when you get a chance by filling out the profile. In the meantime enjoy the cafe. Don't you wish the coffee was real?

Marjorie, I can't remember if I mentioned this to you before but I really like your profile picture. Where and by whom was it taken?

We were there in March. So we were each about the same time-distance from New Years, so maybe the weather would be similar. Further north in Patagonia, near Torres del Paine, the days can be warm and the nights cool. Further north in Santiago, the weather is warmer - short sleeve weather. Further south, from Punta Arenas to Cape Horn and in the Straights of Magellian, or in ushuaia it can be overcast, cool and very, very windy. Southern Patagonia and ushuaia reminded me of Alaska - not just the weather, but also the frontier-like appearance of the place and the people.
The answer is that you need layers so that you can add and remove as required. Don't forget a waterproof layer as well - we did get some drizzle in the extreme south. It's wonderful there - you'll love it! I wish that UnTours would open up a service in Patagonia - it would be a sell-out if they did - I would go back frequently.

Namibia? I had friends living there at the time. It is an easy country to visit in lots of ways. You can rent camping trucks from several companies. http://www.camping-carhire.com/ but there are lots of tour companies there as well.
