I will schedule the activities / restaurants within the next few days.

Friday - I would like to go to the Romantic Christmas market outside of the town (the one that we could not go to last Christmas Do because of winter storm warning) - afterwards Franconian dinner in the country inn at that village.

Saturday - morning and afternoon walking tours / maybe a ride with the Christmas tram and a fine dining Christmas dinner in the evening

Sunday - morning - traditional brunch at the airport.

Stay tuned ...
Hmmm, brunch at NUE Sunday morning hey? Should I book a quick *O or *A b2b to get access airside?

Just found my way back to the Island ...

Had to reset all kinds of stuff for IB. Sorry to be so out of touch,

I'm in: flights and hotel booked. Arriving 12/6 by train from Munich.

Questions brought up by this thread:
Is there a Whatsapp group and if so how do I join (newbie)?
What is so frightening about flying LHR-MUN, (which is what I'm doing)?
Approximately what time do we meet up on 12/6?

Good to hear you’ll be there! ^

Which airline(s)? Are you transiting in LHR or having a stopover there?

In some forums this will be followed by a comment that you must be flying to Munich (IATA: MUC) as there is no direct flight from LHR to José Tadeo Monagas International Airport (IATA: MUN) in Venezuela (but not in this forum).

Hi Pat,

I don't have installed a WhatsApp group.
Planned to start at 16:00 on Friday - but I got an important business appointment for Friday afternoon so that I need to reschedule my original plan.
Can't tell for sure right now whether start will be at 17:00 or 18:00. Christmas Market in Anwanden does close at 20:00 so I would like to be there before 18:00.

BTW - Christmas DOs seem to be very challenging - I just heard that Terminal 90 - the brunch place at the airport has filed for insolvency - Not sure whether it will still be open in December.

Stay tuned ...

Cheers
CHris

If it was my comment on flying LHR-MUC, that was a reference to the travails encounter enroute to the last NUE DO. Bad weather in LON caused my flight to be cancelled 4 or 5 times! What should have been a 2hr flight took 2 days!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

So my eyesight has deteriorated to the point I can
no longer read music, so I am IN for the Do, staying
at the Hampton. It will be great to see everyone again
(I can still see people-size objects). Most of the time
lili will be my seeing-eye person, but I may need
additional assistance after dark.

P.S. Staying to Monday, so if anyone is free for
supper Sunday night, let me know.

I finally booked my flights. Arriving 6pm on Thursday, departing 2:50pm Sunday, both to/from Paris. I'm going to need a CDG intervention after this few weeks.
