Getting Married that’s EASY

So we are getting married. a proposal, bubbly wine and a tear were involved in the decision. then practicality kicked in: all we have to do is submit some papers, find a barrier free place (for the special people using wheelchairs invited) and be prepared for all weather conditions and all dietary requirements. EASY. Documents from Israel had to be translated by an approved translator from the list on the German embassy's website. Then the ministry Read More

Tibet Mt. Everest I don’t like your altitude

Our Group at the Potala Palace, Lhasa, Tibet We have sleeper bunks in different carriages, the hard sleepers, stacked in 3's on both sides of a narrow compartment with a corridor along one side just wide enough for tiny flip-down seats & only just enough room to walk through, stepping over people's legs & dodging the food trolley. The reading glasses I bought in Shanghai, because I forgot to bring them from home, are broken before we even pass Yangzhou, Read More

An Adventure to Remember in Strasbourg France

The Alsace- Lorraine region is one that has changed hands between Germany and France on multiple occasions over the centuries. Many of the schools in this area are bilingual, teaching German and French as the two main languages. After seeing the beauty and character of Strasbourg and it's surroundings, it is easy to see why both countries have had such an affinity for the locale. Our day began quite early, meeting at the train station in nearby Read More

Huaraz 0608 April 2014

visited today are from the Chavín civilization for which the town is named. They are very much pre-Inca, being about 3000 years old. Our guide was multi-lingual with a group that was mostly Spanish-speaking besides the four of us. He definitely spoke for much longer to the Spanish group than he did to us and it was hard not to feel as though we were missing something. It rained a little while we were looking around and the ponchos we bought at Read More

Has that taco truck ever moved I thought if it didn’t move it needs a different license

It has been quite a while since I last posted, and I almost forgot my password to the site. Things that have happened in recent times; the Nets made it to the playoffs, got through to the quarters to be taken out by the Heat. They lost to the Heat away and the one win at home was not enough to stop the Heat in their dominant tracks. I went hiking in Cold Springs, NY, which was pleasant. It was really nice to get away from the city and check out the Read More

Intermission or maybe Intramission

We rolled up the green valley out of Akhaltsikhe and gently back into the steppe. As we climbed, we began to get the sense that we were already in Armenia. Most of the towns in the Javakheti region are inhabited by Armenians and this becomes more so the case as one nears the border post at Bavra. In contrast to the Georgians we met in our first days across the border, the Armenians we were meeting showed a mastery of the Russian language and it was Read More

Visiting London the Dutch way Visitando Londres como los holandeses

Last weekend we went Dutch. No, we didn't change nationalities or started speaking the language fluently… but we took a 3-day ride to London with a bus full of Dutch people! Ana found a deal that allowed us to travel to London by bus then by ferry from Calais to Dover, then by bus again and finally to a hotel in Stevenage where we spent the night. The trip took about 10 hours and during this time we were in 4 different countries (Netherlands, Read More

Walking Days 4 6 Villafranca Del Bierzo and Ambasmestas

07/05/14 From Molinaseca I walked to the town of Villafranca Del Bierzo which was about 31kms and I was pleased to have arrived at 3:15pm (taking about 8 hours with a few stops and picture breaks along the way). The first 10km or so was rather boring as you travelled along a road, but Peter from Brighton and I chatted and stopped for snacks etc to break it up slightly. Ponferrada, which we passed through, was an interesting town with a magnificent Read More

Finishing in style Okinawa and the Southern Islands

As you may have noticed, Japan has been a pretty busy time for me as I was eager to experience as much as I could. So my final stop being the crystal blue waters and white sandy beaches of Okinawa and the surrounding islands would be a welcomed pace. All that I had planned was to make my way to a quiet island, relax, and do some scuba diving, and I was definitly looking forward to it. My first two days on Okinawa honto (main island) was a bit disorganized, Read More

Ou et le Musee du Bardo Ou et Monfluery

Yes, precisely where is the Bardo, Tunisia’s finest museum. It is question I asked many, many times this morning and many, many times I was told another 2 stops this way or that on Tunis’ Metro (tram) system. Now I’m no expert on tram systems but one on which there are neither signs on stations or announcements does leave those unfamiliar with the system in some difficulty. In the end, having travelled back on forth between the same 3 stations Read More
