    Know some responded in master thread but thought it would be better to create a separate thread.

    At Grand Hyatt Berlin Thursday night (made res for 2; anyone want breakfast on Friday?) then taking night train to Vienna Friday night. Have res @ PH Vienna for Sat & Mon, but if award or c & p doesnʻt open for Sun may stay elsewhere. Havenʻt had a chance to explore touring options/Vienna City Card but still planning to attend the Vienna Naschmarkt Saturday morning and the Vienna boy choir mass on Sunday (tickets needed). Iʻd like to combine sightseeing, eating, shopping, and music but am totally open to suggestions.

    For Mallorca, planning late Saturday departure back to TXL. Would love company/suggestions.

    Well, I'll be arriving in Vienna on Sunday, 17th, so that gives a couple of extra days. Not sure about my sightseeing yet, but definitely some eating (Schnitzel) and drinking (found some hopefully good craftbeer places). Need to have a closer look at the Vienna City Card, I guess...

    For Mallorca, I'll be staying until the 24th, but will not move from the beach in Canyamel... just some relaxing and beach.

    Update - since the strike is cancelled for our dates, I plan to depart PMI as originally planned on Friday evening.

    Any others on the LH flight to FRA?

    I'm arriving in Venice on the 17th, taking the overnight train leaving on the 18th arriving in Vienna early in the morning on the 19th. Right now my flight is scheduled to depart PMI extra late on the 22nd. Fortunately I'm in paid J back to the states, so United should put me on priority for rebooking if things go sideways. Might even be able to engineer an airline switch for my longhaul flight due to it.

    I just thought it might be easier to organise a bit with a spreadsheet:
    Pre- and After-MegaDO 2017
    If you can think of more topics for columns, just add them.

    Hello, MegoDO'ers! I am flying out of PMI very early Sat, Sept 23 at 6:30 am. Would anyone like to share a taxi to airport at the very early time of 3:30 am? ben1979 I know you asked, but I wanted to clarify my terribly early flight.

    I'm extending my trip until the 3rd, when I fly out of LUX. That's 8 days after the Do! Currently thinking of staying a couple more days in Mallorca (since it's my 1st time visiting and we'll already be there), then visit BCN/Spain or Belgium (outside BRU), depending on weather, whim, & convenience of flights/trains to LUX.

    Anyone else planning (or similar to me, not quite planning) travels after the official festivities?

    landing in VIE at about 10am. Staying at the Moxy. Does anyone know what their policy (and crucially practice) is regarding early checkin?
    Have some emails to send, but other than that free from then on.

    (Is anyone looking for accommodation in PMI on the Thursday night? - I've got a room that I was holding in a Canyamel hotel that is just behind the beach. About to release that room as I will be using a room at one of the Universal Hotels on the beach instead).
