  1. The kitchen area at Highclere has been extensively modernized, and looks NOTHING like the set constructed for Downton.
  2. I think Steamboats meant Ravenna. But you are correct that there are no good options.
  3. I don't think the Bubonic Plague in the 14th century was a lot of laughs.
  4. Seasickness, like food, is a very subjective issue. I did a westbound TA with a large group; most of us experienced no discomfort at all, but one person was seasick for the entire voyage.
  5. Pick 7/20. You may actually have summer weather for one or two days.
  6. I would hardly call I-75 a rural road. But I still would drive it the day before.
  7. The hotel is only three stories, was built in 1937, and what you may have a view of is a lot of trees.
  8. Frankfurt was heavily bombed during WW2 and is now known among the Germans as Mainhattan. Almost everything you will see is a reconstruction. Compared to it, Amsterdam is a little village.
  9. Having been to Venice several times, I am astonished that it worked.
  10. I much prefer (well, when we could still travel) flying in and out of Milan and taking the train to Venice. I did fly in and out of Marco Polo ONCE. It was a zoo.
  11. Is this what you're referring to? The Maritime Labor Convention of 2006 provides the only international workplace protections for seafarers, but the U.S. is not one of the 97 signatories and therefore does not enforce its crew welfare rules.

  12. It is estimated that about a third of NYC's small businesses (and many restaurants) will never reopen.
