Did your td bank atm card work without any fees?
Did you find atm's in Rome, Venice or Amsterdam that didn't charge any fees?

Just got my statement and there was no indication of any credits to my account for fees. Will have to call up to find out about that. Noticed random ATMs claiming no fee, but don't remember what cities they were in.

Rome at the Great Synagogue when I could.
Amsterdam at the Chabad Yeshiva which was right near the hotel. I can try to get the address later.

That's sweet. TR's are harder to get to than I imagined. I can briefly tell you that Friday afternoon to Motzai Shabbos was not enough time to go up the Rock and do a dolphin tour. So in terms of planning how much time to spend there, give yourself some more time.

I started this TR, but there is more to write. Hopefully soon.

@yehuda I don't know how you did a 6 week trip going from country to country, I just did a 10 day trip and I was exhausted at the end...
I could only imagine how exhausting the Spain part of your trip was....

Ha, yeah that was like 6 flights and a 2 long car rides in 1 week. But we just called it early every night (and sometimes slept in a bit) but didn't get too exhausted till the last few days of the trip.

Yeah, I'm sorry about that. I started on GIB then actually started being productive with my studying, so I stopped the TR, then we went to DEN and I wanted to get those TRs done as it's clearly better when everything is fresh in your mind. Then I got home to a flooded apt, so yeah I'm behind with this. lol

I'll just tell you, you want more than just a Friday afternoon and Shabbos there (we left Motzai Shab) and be prepared for crazy driving once you cross the border. Really cool how many Jews there are there, and they walk around with yarmulkahs on.

Sunday morning we flew out of Spain, so GIB was really the last part of our Spain trip, so you have most of the info already there. Hopefully will get to GIB once things settle down.
