Finally, The Galapagos Islands!

February 24th, 2018|

The Galapagos are on almost everyone's list of places to visit before they croak, and that was certainly true of us as well.  Bonnie, in fact, has had it very close to the top of her list for years.  We all know the story of Charles Darwin visiting [...]

Colorful Colombia

February 4th, 2018|

No South American country has captured the attention of North Americans for the last thirty years or so as strongly as Colombia. It is the third largest exporter of coffee in the world, and even today the leading manufacturer and exporter of cocaine. It has a nearly endless [...]

Portugal’s Spectacular Atlantic Coast

September 17th, 2017|

  Leaving Lisbon and Sintra behind, we jumped on the motorway and headed back down south as fast as Romy could take us. Our intention was to follow the Atlantic coast from Cabo de Sao Vicente--the most western point on the European continent--as far north as we could manage [...]

A Winter in Portugal

September 10th, 2017|

  We were so long enamored of Spain that moving on to Portugal was difficult, and it didn’t start well. We crossed the border on a cold rainy day and went on in the gathering darkness to a campground close by the border. It was the worst we encountered [...]

Color Saturated Nepal

June 10th, 2017|

  Nepal has always been primarily a Hindu culture rather than what most Westerners think of as a Buddhist one.  In many ways it resembles and reminded me more of India than what I would next encounter in Buddhist Tibet.  When the Chinese invaded and occupied Tibet, many [...]

South to Andalucia and Moorish Spain

May 28th, 2017|

The most southern part of Spain--Andalucia--is so rich in history that it can be spellbinding, and that was certainly our reaction to much of what we experienced there.  This is largely the result of Moorish influence that is still prevalent and felt nearly everywhere.  After all, the Moors, [...]

A Visit To Spain’s Basque Country

May 20th, 2017|

While not exclusively searching for sunshine prior to arriving in Spain, it was certainly something which seemed to make all the difference in our general attitude and mood.  In Spain we began to find it consistently. What sets Northern Spain apart most emphatically from the rest of the [...]

Searching for Sunshine Through Germany and France

April 30th, 2017|

We returned to Europe on November 22nd and went directly to Duelmen, Germany to pick up our motorhome Romy after his long sleep in the freezing cold of winter, only to be greeted with more of the same.  We did, however, spend a few days in the neighborhood [...]

Moscow: Capital of the Russian Federation

February 17th, 2017|

  Above is the famed Novodevichy Convent at night from across the lake that, in the dead of winter, becomes a skating rink and was a favorite of Tolstoy's when he lived in the neighborhood.  The convent itself has a long history dating from its founding in 1524. [...]

St. Petersburg and the Rivers of Russia

February 15th, 2017|

  That sleek white ship sprawled across the photo above is our river cruiser, the MS Mstislav Rostropovich, on which we traveled for seven days down the rivers of Russia from the Neva in St. Petersburg to the Volga and Moscow. We have long wanted to visit Russia, [...]
