  1. BEWARE of a tour guide named SORITA, in PORT ELIZABETH- ADDO ELEPHANT RESERVE. 

    SHE LEFT US HIGH AND DRY...we confirmed with her several time— she seemed friendly, happy to guide us and sounded great- SHE ALWAYS ended her correspondences “blessings” .  Blessings indeed- she never showed up and ruined our day...watch out for her.  All the other guides knew her .....btw, We had found her on Tours by Locals......She is a BAD BAD unreliable person, stay away from her or she might do it to you too.


  2. Friends with whom we were traveling, missed their flight from City Airport London because of fog. Because of the itinerary, having 2 sea days, they arrived in Dubrovnik missing 4 days of the 10 day cruise. They were re routed to Moscow..a nightmare for them......I arranged with Rachael, the cruise director at the time, for someone from the ship to collect them at the airport...when they arrived, THE BAND was playing, balloons were everywhere and everyone was cheering for them. Seabourn was fantastic....and of course, it was the talk of the ship!

  4. I take far too much! I hang everything I think I want to take on a rolling rack in my closet, trying to mix and match as much as I can......then I eliminate. I love shoes, so I bring more than I should. A few bags, but clutches are thin...a messenger bag, a tote or two. Always a cashmere sweater, even in warm climates. I use Eastern Mountain packing cubes. in our Val pack, I hang things with plastic bags from the dry cleaner, helps with wrinkles. I use wire hangers or those really thin ones, which I leave on the ship (no more wire hangers, to quote Joan Crawford) so unpacking goes right into the closet! I Keep folded garments in individual plastic bags packed with tissue, keeps nicely stacked and easy to get to without messing up the clothes. A lot of work, but it saves time when unpacking. I love my clothes!


  5. SLSD, there are always people on CC who’s negativity, argumentativeness and nastiness comes through in their posts. I have found, unfortunately, that one must be very careful in the way words are used to avoid being attacked. The purpose of this board is to share information “for the good”, both negative and positive, but there is a way to handle it so people are not insulted.


  6. Some people can wear those sky highs all day, but at an airport, and there especially, I would prefer to be invisible. It’s always about being appropriate, don’t you think? My comment was tongue and cheek -what I’m looking for is definitely to impress the wild animals when we do the overnight (with the ship from Mombasa) as well as to to provide my own protection, Hah ! Oops, I didn’t catch the typo on the shoes, trolls, don’t come after me, please!. BTW, I’ve seen really cute Doc Martins with red soles, no, couldn’t wear those either, not supposed to wear red. Guess the sneaks will have to do!!
