Hey all who have registered or will do in the near future for Euromeet 2017 in Kempten, Bavaria:
many or some might fly into and out of Munich, so I thought to ask who would like to meet in Munich after the Euromeet?
I also spoke with Kathrin_E about this idea and she suggested that she could lead a group to the lovely city of Landshut as a day trip during a possible meet.
Before we go into details (and I must have a reliable computer for that too, end of next week hopefully), I simply wanted to ask around who might be interested in visiting Munich for 1-2-3 days afterwards.
Possible sights and activities in Munich could be:
visiting BMW World and Museum,
visiting Olympic Ground with statdium tours and roof top climbing,
visiting Bavaria Filmstadt, our equivalent to Hollywood :-)
Kathrin's suggestion to visit Landshut
and many more.
Thanks already in advance :-)
I guess everyone is busy copying their content, or maybe just discouraged. I have enjoyed my years on VT reading the travel forums and hanging out here on Misc. I will miss all your voices.
Anybody else thinks that VT should become a UNESCO World Heritage of Web Design ?
That way our pages might be saved the way they are as a kind of travel-wikipedia.
...maybe I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one !!!!
OK, well my VT pages are not too precious to me. Some are out of date, Some need edits etc..so they can sink with the proverbial ship so to speak. But the friendships that I have made here are so much more important!!! I am friends with most of my VT mates on Facebook, but if you are not on facebook, and want to keep in touch with me, could you please send me your email address here before the shut-down date?... and I in turn, will send you mine. I am very sad, as I have so many wonderful friends that I have met here, met in person and with some I have even stayed in their homes!!! How lucky am I??? so many fantastic experiences all around the world. Mexico, NYC, Canada, Boracay, some awesome OZ VT meets..... :)
Take care, everyone!!! lots of love...Betts xxxx
Any suggestions for travel insurance for someone with sort of high bood pressure (only just and not on meds) and on antidepression tabs. Most insurers seem to regard this as meaning a major risk requiring medical checks etc.
Can anyone recommend shorebased tour companies that are reliable, but not as expensive as cruiseline tour in Naples, Rome (Cibiteveccia), Florence, Pisa, (Livorno), Canne and Palma?
Thanks in advance.
Is it right to say "travelling in the Algarve"? OR...is it better to say; "travel in the Algarve"?
Anyone know of any other sites like VT where can save tips of places etc?
What was the name of the one recommended by VT in their announcement email?(can't find the email!).
Not that it matters much anymore but anyone else noticed that there is no more virtualtourist on Google except those references by TA. It says I have around 20.000 results but in fact there are only 70.......

TUTORIALS FOR BACKING UP YOUR VT PAGES ARE LIVE.
The original VT Founder, Tilman and I have put up a page with tutorials on how to back up your VT Member Pages using 3rd party publicly available programs and utilities. This site also has a forum so that people can keep in touch and help each other out. If we decide to do anything in the future with the grassroots collaboration of VT members, we'll talk about it there. This site is:
- Please note: Neither Tilman nor I have any relationship to current VT or TA. This is a volunteer effort to help people save their pages. Also please note that we did NOT write any of the programs, we're just giving advice on how members can save their pages.
I have not been the biggest contributor to VT, but i like this forum very much and have tried to help and have gotten good help in my travel planning as well. I am very sad to hear that it will close down. Is there a Facebook group, another forum or something like that were people are moving?
Just send your feedback.
Because Virtual Tourist is soon to be Virtual, we can have a Virtual leaving party.
Which means we can trash the place, spill red wine on the carpets, put a TA SUCKS poster up at the windows.
We shall have the wildest Virtual party the World has ever known.
What bad ass things would you like to do at this party (remember to keep it clean if you have not backed up your work just in case the moderators are called back in to deal with us. lol) Just a party and some fun, no more.
Please feel free to join in.
A message to everyone:-
We have had loads of fun over the years, lets finish with a bang.
I guess I'm going to have to rename my VT Meatballs ... :-(
Hi. We've completed both Windows and Mac Tutorials for helping people to back up their VT member pages. Would anyone with a Windows machine like to test it out?
The tutorials will be on a page we've made outside of Facebook so that all VTers can access it. It will also have a Forum so members can assist each other and keep in touch.
If you have a windows machine and would like to test it out, please message me.
By the way, we will wait until VT staff post a few updates to make it possible to download large size images before we publishing the site url.
We have the chance of 5 days in Vancouver during the first week in February. I realise this probably isn't the best time to visit but its then or never. Will there still be enough for us to see/do. Will we be able to drive around (Whistler?) or will the weather put a stop to that. Would be grateful for any suggestions.
I am sudanese and arabic language native speaker but i would need your help to find any biography or document for the life of Gordon Pasha (Charles Goerge Gordon) an English Colonel during Mahdist Era and his life in Sudan.
I will be so thankful for your help.
Regatrds from Tralee, Ireland
I'm on several travel sites and have been for years .. VT was my newest and by far FAV. I can truly say I've been addicted ... any hope the prev owners can take it back or start the same thing under different name??? did they agree to a non compete clause? I like how you can follow persons whole travel and get to know the people. If now anyone know a site that's at all similar.
Traveling to Italy in September. Arriving in Rome for 3 nights, Siena for 3, Lucca for 2, Florence for 3 and finishing in Milan for 3 nights. We are planning on doing some small side trips outside of a few of the stops. Doing research if it is worth it to by a rail pass, or just pay as we go. The little I've looked, I've seen passes for an 8 day during a 1 month period pass for $400. But i did a quick check online for the individual trips and it was coming up to be around $200 pp for all the trains we are looking at. Am I correct, or are ther other types of rail passes? Thanks in advance!
OK. So......no more fun times in misc forum in the future. However, I can and will give out my external
email address to those who are interested. I also have been trying to think of a way to remember everyone's
VT name, real name if given, and location., ta da.......going to get out the trusty camera and take a photo of your
homepage. Having friends around the world has always been a fun venture and one which the majority of us
want to keep active. So.....let's do it folks!!!!
I'm looking for a friend in the Brussels region to escape together a few times a year.
Short fly- or roadtrips.
