Upgrade Completed; But still a work in progress!

Hello travelers!

As you can see, we upgraded our forums on Wednesday Oct 15th. We're back up and running, but we are still a work in progress! We'll be renaming things and creating an all around better experience. In the meantime, you can use the forums (the functionality is extremely similar to what you are used to). We hope to be finished tweaking things very shortly. Thank you for your patience; it is appreciated!

    Planning a trip makes my OH very happy indeed....and me, for about 1/2 an hour, then I get bored and anxious to talk about something else...
    For an overnight in Venice, I think he'd already walked down every street on Google before we even got there....

      Haha! I'm more of the planner in our household, though SO helps some too. I find most of it exciting, though I think searching for airfare is the most tedious thing on earth. I enjoy reading hotel reviews and figuring out which museums/attractions/activities to add to our itinerary.
