Bob and I are getting really excited for our 3rd trip. Our countdown is down to singe digits!
Would anyone overlapping our trip (19-26) be interested in doing Trading Spaces to Couples Sans Souci one day? It's free for Romance Rewards members, you can sign up for that program before your first trip and start earning other benefits on your return trips, but Trading Spaces you can do your first year. We would board a shuttle in the CTI lobby around 10, they take us to CSS (it's not a long trip, about 10-15 minutes?) and we are free to explore the other property, swim, have lunch, do included activities, etc. At 4:00 they take us "home" to CTI for afternoon, dinner, etc. I am particularly looking forward to checking out Sunset Beach, though we won't be there for sunset. I love our Tower Island but the people that love CSS rave about the au natural beach! I also want to take a (clothed) dip in the mineral pool. Right now I am open about day, would anyone like to come with us?
I mentioned before that Bob likes fishing, I was hoping to arrange a charter for him and some other folks. Would anyone like to split a private fishing trip? Last year 4 guys paid about $150 each. It was fun. They picked him up from the resort and brought him back, and drinks and snacks were included. Please let me know if you are interested, we are running out of time to book if this is something we want to do this year!
Does anyone know what days the catamaran runs, and is it still in the afternoon? That and the snorkel/glass bottom boat is missing from the new activities schedule. I would love to work our Trading Spaces to CSS around the catamaran ride, it was lots of fun last year and not to be missed!
It looks like movie night on the beach is Thursday. This was one of our favorite things last year! Does anyone know what has been showing?
We are excited about the Repeater's Dinner on Monday, the 25th but it looks like most of the folks we know will be gone by then!
Looking forward to meeting some new friends. I have long, brown hair (and am very pale) so I am kind of easy to spot--come say hi!
Sue, I love the picture you posted, you look so happy and relaxed! Was it last year?
March 10th, 2013, 10:27 AM
If we run into you, we'll say hello. We should be spending our days at the an area
March 10th, 2013, 04:58 PM
Our flight comes in around 2pm on the 25th, not sure how long it takes to get to CTI, but we are ready to hit the ground running. I'm guessing we will be around the pool when you arrive. Can't wait!
March 11th, 2013, 12:48 PM
With 11 sleeps to go, and snow outside my window, Terry and I are getting anxious to go! We are planning to take in the Catamaran and will book as soon as we arrive. There is so much I would love to do - so I guess I better remember to book some down time too. Glad to see many First Timers also signing up for this thread. Those repeaters have been offering great tips and are helping to build the excitement! See you by noon with a beverage in hand!
March 11th, 2013, 03:24 PM
Godiva- We are meeting friend we met last year at CTI (16-23) We plan to take them over to CSS for Trading Places too. Would Friday the 22nd work for you? They only do Trading Places Mon. Wed. and Fri.
The picture I posted was actually taken at CSS in January. You should post a picture so we can find you at CTI
March 12th, 2013, 11:00 AM
Not long now! Looking forward to meeting you in the Sun!

The countdown is now in days instead of weeks begins. Soon it will be hours. CAN"T WAIT! How has the weather been lately? Good TI weather? I have got my iPhone weather app set to "Ocho Rios".

I can never seem to find a photo of the two of us that is "small" enough--the photo uploading tool always says they are too large! I am thinking I will have to find a place to host some photos online and then post one. Working on it!
I think Friday would be great. I have in my notes that Trading Places is Mon, Wed & Fri but went looking yesterday on the website and couldn't find anything that said so anymore. I wonder if that's still the case? We will find out soon enough! :-D
In other news, I bought a big pack of flexi-straws...because sometimes I don't want to sit up to drink my yummy frozen drink. It's a sure sign that we will be at CTI soon!

We are almost packed. Now, if Mother Nature will just let our flight out before the worst of (hopefully) the last winter storm...
Hoping to be there in 24 hours!!! Save us a drink or two, Sue! ;-)
March 21st, 2013, 09:52 PM
Packed and ready to go in 17 hours, hopefully we won't get a lot of snow through the night and will be able to leave on time.
