yes please. One single room required !

Dale   on 15/03/19 @ 14:53 said:

I would prefer a single room but am happy to share. I%u2019m sorry I have no experience of driving abroad and I will transfer the 60 pound deposit to you now. Thanks for all your hard work planning this

Twotone   on 15/03/19 @ 14:53 said:

Twin room is fine for me. Am prepared to drive is needed, but definitely not into Florence!

The Mind is Willing   on 15/03/19 @ 14:55 said:

I expect to be a party of 2 Doug. Unfortunately I wouldn't offer to drive as I have never done so before. Sorry

The Mind is Willing   on 15/03/19 @ 14:57 said:

I will need your details to transfer funds

Spring   on 15/03/19 @ 15:02 said:

Spring: oh and yes I am as excited as you! thanks a lot

Dale   on 15/03/19 @ 15:04 said:

Oh my goodness, the itinerary is amazing !!!

SueW   on 15/03/19 @ 15:08 said:

Single room please Doug x

SueW   on 15/03/19 @ 15:10 said:

PS I am happy to drive

Pollydaydream   on 15/03/19 @ 15:22 said:

Hi Doug, a single room for me too please. This is somewhere I've wanted to visit for a while. Brilliant

Manners   on 15/03/19 @ 15:35 said:

I would prefer a single room but I am happy to share depending how the numbers work out. I am also happy to drive although whether my passengers would be happy with that is another matter. Thanks again Doug.

RuthieA   on 15/03/19 @ 16:06 said:

I am happy to share and I don't mind driving x

jo_jo   on 15/03/19 @ 16:11 said:

I would like a twin room please Doug (with Ruby). I am happy to drive if my erratic driving in Sicily didn't put you off

Jo1   on 15/03/19 @ 16:24 said:

I%u2019d like to book for Maz and I in a twin room and would drive if necessary. Many thanks

RuthieA   on 15/03/19 @ 16:25 said:

Is it first come first serve ie names on the invite or can you 'save places for people?

Lazlo Woodbine   on 15/03/19 @ 16:35 said:

It is first come first served and how the rooms and gender mix pans out Ruth. I will know when all places are taken. I asked people to comment on here so I have a record of when they booked.

Morningdawn   on 15/03/19 @ 16:45 said:

Me please, will share

Maz   on 15/03/19 @ 17:00 said:

Yes please

Maz   on 15/03/19 @ 17:02 said:

Share a twin wth Jo please

Kestrel7   on 15/03/19 @ 17:14 said:

After the dull winter we have had seems like the ideal tonic. Pity we have to wait a year.
Prefer single room - have an ex OD friend who may wish to join me but I think you are reaching max numbers... Need your bank details also...

SueW   on 15/03/19 @ 17:23 said:

I don't mind sharing if that makes it easier, Doug

going4gold   on 15/03/19 @ 17:45 said:

Yes please
Sounds perfect
Happy to share and happy to drive
Have done lots of driving in Europe

DebbieJ   on 15/03/19 @ 17:45 said:

Aw Doug ... I said yes early this afto but didn't read the thread! Hope I have made it? Jill18 can't access OD at work either so she's unable to put her name down but wanted to be a definite x

going4gold   on 15/03/19 @ 17:47 said:

Let me know if I am selected and will send deposit

Tracy (no 'e'!)   on 15/03/19 @ 18:16 said:

I recognise that I'm probably too late but happy to go on a waiting list. No problems in sharing a room, and am OK to drive.

Vickster   on 15/03/19 @ 18:20 said:

Think I%u2019ve missed this but if there%u2019s any chance of getting a place that would be fab. I%u2019m happy to share a room and to drive.

Jill18   on 15/03/19 @ 18:39 said:

Will share with Dawn....!

LaurieC   on 15/03/19 @ 19:37 said:

Very interested Doug, OK with shared room and happy to drive.

The Mind is Willing   on 15/03/19 @ 20:41 said:

Sorry Dougie I'm a party of one after all and I'm happy to share

Dave C   on 15/03/19 @ 23:40 said:

Hi Doug
Looks like I%u2019ve seen this too late (newbie error) if there%u2019s a waiting list put me down for a single room please

Lazlo Woodbine   on 16/03/19 @ 8:39 said:

Thanks to everyone who has shown interest. Unfortunately when demand exceeds supply some are going to be disappointed, this event will probably happen in 2021 as well and those unsuccessful can go on a waiting list. I don't have the judgement of Solomon so forgive me if this isn't perfect. I have tried to be as fair as possible without showing undue favour which has meant excluding some friends (or maybe former friends now).

Lazlo Woodbine   on 16/03/19 @ 8:47 said:

The party has now increased to 16 as I attempted to shoe horn in others. I did contact the agent to see if it was possible to have more beds but this wasn't possible. Those going need to forward me a 60 pound deposit. They are Me, Two Tone, Manners, Dale, Spring, The mind is willing, SueW, Pollydaydream, RutieA, Jo1, Jo Jo, Ruby walls, Spring, Morning Dawn, DebbiJ and Jill18.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 16/03/19 @ 8:53 said:

Reserves are, Kestrel7, Going for Gold, Tracy no(e), Vickster, Head for the Hills, LaurieC and Dave C.

jo_jo   on 16/03/19 @ 8:57 said:

Many thanks Dougie I realise this must have been a hard decision for you to have to cutoff some folks.

Maz   on 16/03/19 @ 9:51 said:

Am I anywhere? Thought I was within the 15???

Lazlo Woodbine   on 16/03/19 @ 10:11 said:

Sorry, Maz, I will sort this out. I made a miscalculation. Hang on a bit longer.

Manners   on 16/03/19 @ 10:20 said:

Let me know where to send the deposit please Doug.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 16/03/19 @ 10:24 said:

Right I am just enquiring about a larger villa. When I have the bedroom layout I will let you all know.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 16/03/19 @ 10:50 said:

The larger villa can accommodate you as well Maz, phew.

RuthieA   on 16/03/19 @ 11:03 said:

Payment sent Doug, you are a star! Thank you for your hard work yet again.

Morningdawn   on 16/03/19 @ 11:06 said:

Thanks for sorting this Doug, not an easy task. Very excited to have made the list

Pollydaydream   on 16/03/19 @ 11:07 said:

Thanks Doug... I need your bank details too please

Vickster   on 16/03/19 @ 11:32 said:

Looks like a fair approach to me Doug. Must have been tough working this one out. I won%u2019t hold it against you, that%u2019s how the dice rolls.

The Mind is Willing   on 16/03/19 @ 11:47 said:

Doug did you realise you included Spring twice so Maz could be included in the original 16?

SueW   on 16/03/19 @ 11:53 said:

Thanks so much Doug, I will need your bank details too please.

The Mind is Willing   on 16/03/19 @ 11:55 said:

I know what a nightmare this can be Dougie so well done.

DebbieJ   on 16/03/19 @ 12:09 said:

Thanks Doug definitely not an easy task...I didn't think I'd made it! Will transfer monies x

Jill18   on 16/03/19 @ 12:11 said:

Thanks Dougie..could you send me bank details please x

Pollydaydream   on 16/03/19 @ 20:47 said:

Deposit sent.. Thrilled to be included. Thank you so much.

Bal   on 16/03/19 @ 22:06 said:

Lovely area for walking, wine and pizza. Sad that I've just seen it. Still maybe 2021 !

Twotone   on 17/03/19 @ 11:14 said:

Deposit transferred. Thanks for all your efforts in making this trip happen.

Jo1   on 17/03/19 @ 15:11 said:

Monies transferred Doug. Cheers and many thanks.

Jill18   on 17/03/19 @ 16:18 said:

Money transferred Dougie...thankyou xx

BigBadJohn   on 18/03/19 @ 12:18 said:

Put me on the waiting list for the waiting list please

Happyfeet   on 19/03/19 @ 8:18 said:

Have I missed it? Put me on the waiting list please x

Happyfeet   on 19/03/19 @ 8:23 said:

Having read all the comments now I realise I am far too late,however if not this year then pretty please for the next. Will keep my eyes peeled this time. Have a great time all.

Janhk   on 20/03/19 @ 18:31 said:

So, it sounds lovely Doug. I would have been interested but obviously far too late - maybe I can go a waiting list for 2021 instead

Lazlo Woodbine   on 21/03/19 @ 17:10 said:

This tour will almost certainly go ahead again in 2021 judging by the demand. Glad to see so many Italiaphiles on OD.

going4gold   on 12/04/19 @ 13:38 said:

Hopefully I am in . Happy to share a room or single - whatever works
Just tell me when I need to pay money
Will join Facebook group

Walkthis way  on 24/04/19 @ 10:15 said:
