malta monday...

... Mdina.



So if I organized a tour group that comprised of 12-14 days in Rome and Malta during November of this year and say Fr. Z was to come along as the group's priest how many of you would be interested in something like that?

No one could afford to pay their own way and his, too.

Puh-puh-puh-PayPal!

I'd love to - but don't think I could do a trip like that until next Spring.

My vacation time for this year is already booked, sadly (or not to sadly as the case may be).

Sounds great.

I would love it, but my pocket book this year would not. Sorry! :(

I would love it, but I don't think that my money, or my teachers would like it too much if I were gone for 2 weeks...

Kat, the "multicultural festival" parish you mentioned in the other post just announced a pilgrimmage to Italy in November. I think it will be led by the Associate Pastor. Personally, he's the one I would not want to travel with.

Sounds like a great idea. I'd certainly be interested.

I'm actully convinced that it could be considered 'research' for my theology degree. Not to mention that this sort of excursion is exactly what student loans are for.

Kat- There's a theme emerging here- "I'd love to go, but- it's the money, honey". Ditto for me, and probably for many of your American readers. The Euro may currently be falling against the dollar due to the Greek debacle, but is still well above parity, and may rebound by November, thanks to a massive infusion of cash from the World Bank and the Fed, keeping Europe a very expensive vacation destination for Americans. Not to mention the Great American Recession we're still mired in (keep the Hope- where's the Change?).

Perhaps you can form a viable tour group primarily of European readers. Advantages- they are already "over there", and their money is already denominated in Euros, sans unfavorable exchange rate. And if you can really get Fr Z as tour leader, that should be a fantastic draw.

Wish I could go, would love to visit bella Italia again. P&B.

Well I'm planning on a trip to Roma in september, but I haven't finalized it yet. Depending on the details, this might be a good alternative.

My wife turns thirty this year. In November. We love Fr Z and the Crescat. We would be interested! What kind of money are we talking?

Robert said...

Any further word on this trip?
