Note: I've  "cleaned up the booking page" so if things look slightly different, you're not imagining  things!
Note: I have repackaged everything into one --- so you will not see an activity fee separate from the room fee. It's all in one!

Adjusted invoices:  The invoice you will receive at booking will show the remaining balance  due after initial deposit is paid. Because I allow for monthly payments, I  will send each registered family an adjusted invoice that reflects the below payment schedule including late fees or credits due.

  • If you are having trouble making a monthly payment, REACH OUT TO ME BEFORE it becomes an issue. I will work with you if I can. 
 
Automatic payments: you will have the option to turn-on automatic payments once the adjusted invoice is prepared.  By turning on auto payment, you are authorizing a payment to be processed immediately. if you have already made your monthly payment, make a personal note to turn on auto payment NEXT MONTH before you process the payment so you are not paying twice in one month.
Custom payment amounts: are available if you would like to pay MORE than the minimum  monthly amount.  Email me at brandi@theansweristravel.com

Registration after 6/1/2022:  your adjusted invoice will reflect the "catch up payments" that will be DUE IMMEDIATELY.

A bustling alpine village set against a scenic backdrop of mountains, forests and river banks, you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to the cobblestone streets of Germany’s famed Bamberg or Lindau as colorful shops dot the landscape and the heavenly aroma of authentic German fare takes to the breeze.

German dinner- THIS IS FAMILY STYLE.  A PRESET (you will not be able to choose what is served) MENU is brought out to each table where each person will serve themselves from each dish served at the table.  Last year, we had some families who were disappointed in the food. The meals are prepared by Germans who pride themselves in preparing authentic  dishes. I HAVE ASKED THEM TO DO THIS FOR OUR GROUP because FOOD is a HUGE PART OF EXPERIENCING A CULTURE. THE GERMAN MEAL ADDS TO THE EXPERIENCE of the trip. It is okay if you choose not to participate in the meal, BUT I NEED TO KNOW NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 1 so that I can prepare the restaurant. There is NO DISCOUNT IF YOU OPT OF THE GERMAN MEAL.  I encourage you to at least try the German meal. You may be surprised! 
 
Dishes may include: Porkschnitzel,  Chicken Schnitzel with Creamy Mushroom Gravy, Knockwurst(Pork sausage) Garlic Sausage ) Weisswurst ( Veal sausage Sauerbraten ( Beef sausage), Schweinebraten, Spätzle ( Homemade Noodles) , Red Cabbage , Sauerkraut , German Potato Salad. Subject to change.
 
Friday, December 9, 2022
Breakfast, lunch & dinner on own.
 
Today we spend most of our time outdoors. BE PREPARED TO WALK/HIKE with your little ones.  At both Anna Ruby  & Brasstown Bald, there are places to take breaks along the way. At Brasstown Bald, there is a shuttle to bring you to the top of the mountain if you are not able to walk it, however, you may miss part of the program.  Utilize the cinch bag to make sure you have everything you need for the day. Water,  snacks, meds, etc. We may not be able to make it back to the hotel before the evening activity.
