The Morning Mail Bag

This feature provides friends and loved ones the opportunity to submit a message to any one of our “Educators Tour” travelers.  By clicking on THE MORNING MAIL BAG button above, you can send a "Shout Out" that will be read over the intercom system on the bus, OR, you can send a "Confidential Message" that will only be shared with the named recipient. The "Shout Outs" will be a joy to receive, and they will also allow those on the bus to get to know each other much better and quicker. Please feel free to send several messages while we're on the trip. Who knows, it just might cause Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, etc. to bring back a little something extra for taking the time to connect with them while they're on this trip. This could also be a great opportunity to embarrass them in front of their new "travel buddies".


Travel Journal

This Travel Journal is written and sponsored by East County Schools Federal Credit Union, and will be published daily.  It will include historical and cultural information on the sites that we visit, as well as some interesting “tid-bits” from our adventures, complete with a host of interesting photos throughout the tour.  To view the Travel Journal, simply click on the TRAVEL JOURNAL button above and you will see the different “galleries” for each day complete with a daily overview, and a selection of pictures and captions.

We hope that you enjoy these features and that you visit the ECSFCU website (www.eastcountyschools.org) on a daily basis as we tour Switzerland, Austria & Bavaria.

Wishing you were on this trip with us.  Maybe next year?????

  • Marcel Becker testimonial
    What mattered to me, was that I needed the money to buy a motorhome, and I needed it now. This is the fastest I've ever experienced for a loan. It's never been this easy or this pleasant and I could tell that this was simply the way ECSFCU serves all of their members; it's their culture. I wasn't a member when I started, but I am now.

  • Karl Danielson 2018
    I've bought three cars through the credit union. They make it very easy, very simple, and you can't beat the interest rate. I highly endorse them, their friendly staff, and the service that East County Schools gives its members!

  • ECSFCU is big enough to approve loans with great rates and small enough to provide personal service and products that are important to the educational community.

  • We bank with East County Schools Federal Credit Union and learned they also have a great car buying service! We decided to look into it and ended up with the best customer service, an amazing price, no hassle of going to the dealership, and a brand new 2017 Honda Accord Sport! A year later, we were in need of another car for our growing family. It was an easy decision to go with the credit union and New Cars Inc again. The process and customer service didn’t disappoint once again, and we love our new 2018 Honda CRV! A big thank you to New Cars Inc and ECSFCU!
