    I saw this on the men's thread. Can't imagine why no one thought to post here as well. After all, it is the women that are going.

    I'd take in a few games if I were going to be in Italy, but I have plans to be in England then. The price is way more than I would spend.

    All I can say is it is less than I spent on attending our MBB 5 NCAAT games and 3 of our WBB NCAAT games.

    Just sent that link to my wife......her response was " oh great.... more basketball....take your daughters and go"......guess I'll have to pass although we might be in Italy around that time and maybe can catch up to the team along the way..

    It would be fun to be with the girls and watch them play a few games, but

    1. It conflicts with the total solar eclipse (I'll be in Casper on 21 August)
    2. At 7K + another kilobuck for airfare, it's too expensive (I'm a two star traveler)
    3. I've been everywhere they're going and multiple times in Rome and Venice.
    4. It's going to be uncomfortably hot in August.

    So, I'll keep up with the tour via pictures and accounts on the Boneyard.

    I see nothing about "hanging" with the crew. And as much as it would be fun to see the games, what an itinerary! Mostly traveling, checking in, touring, checking out, and hitting the road. $10K for 2, and pay your own way for the privilege of flying! Not sure meeting Kia, Pheesa, Gabbie and Lou is worth it (and that's saying alot!). Throw in CD, Shea, Marisa and Natalie . . . it's tempting.

    I'd trade Africa for this in a heart beat and save money, right until I was served divorce papers.

    Me, I plan longterm - already have my summer plans. And I, too, and a 2 star (and, occasionally less) traveler. Would rather see the sights than pay for the hotel.

    Besides, I'm saving up for Barcelona!

    Do we have dates or confirmation of the cities in Spain yet?

    Edit: Sept. 22-30 at 3 venues in 2 host cities (sounds like Turkey).

    I sure hope dannykuconn is going. If not, maybe the BY should take up a collection and send him to insure the trip is documented properly by the BY's # 1 photographer.

    You want to see a funny movie, watch "If it's Tuesday, This must be Belgium". As you stated above, the movie it's just about that. Here's the soundtrack from the movie.

    I'm thinking Barcelona and/or Madrid, with a possibility of Seville. The Istanbul crew--plus my sister--is thinking of going. Anyone else??

    Never trade in Africa. My villages in Zambia and Botswana were amazing.
