    Re: A fast tour of Paris!

    Ah those days when one would drive like crazy for that special "rendezvous". I found the movie via Jay Leno's homage - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xG8nQIBl7ig
  2. Re: L'Isola is open, all's right with the world.

    Phil and Amy -

    Yesterday would have been our first full day on the island and as L'Isola was at the top of our must try list, we might have been in the booth next to you!

    Re: Accommodations for one night

    We've stayed one night at Sunset, Village St Jean and Ilets de la plage.

    Sunset was pretty bare bones, but the price is great and loved being in Gustavia for a night.

    Village St Jean has a...

    Loved our lunch at L'l rock last year and going to miss it this time. Also looking forward to 2021, with fingers crossed.

    Got Tradewind to cancel the flight (SBH-SJU) today, with the credit available for booking (not the actual flight) for 1 year. Didn't ask for a refund as that would require fighting with Chase and we...

    Kind of convoluted in order to use our Chase points, resulting in three tickets. Due to the tight connection in SJU, we opted for first class to ensure being first of the plane and took advantage of...

    The inevitable happened. Saw a message from United over the weekend saying our "itinerary has changed". Checked the app and the trip still showed IAH-SJU-SBH. This morning, I settled in for what I...

    Probably a response to Friday's DOT directive to give full refunds. If United follows suit, I'll gladly take the voucher if I can use it next May. As it stands now it's only good through the end of...

    Re: Coronavirus information

    Pretty sure I did as well (couple of years ago). Lots of muscle aches, etc.... Doctor said likely, but no real point in running tests, given the costs, no cure and (being a guy) wasn't pregnant.

    I thought the same, but when shown a coaster I brought back, my French teacher translated it as "bar of the lost ones" or "lost souls". Makes sense, since the "Oubli" is preceded by an article. To be...

  24. Re: Shellona for lunch on a Saturday in January?

    Agreed. From Gouverneur into Gustavia, almost everything "in town" is closer than Shell Beach, assuming one can find parking. If not, head over to St Jean.
