Tuesday was my last full day in Rovinj, my new favorite destination in Europe. It is on the Adriatic and ‘Mediterranean sunny’; red tiled roofs; an ancient church in the middle of town at the highest point; narrow, winding alleyways … Continue reading
Now it’s buon giorno and dobry dan. I did get my seafood dinner in Barceloneta overlooking the Mediterranean. Started with a glass of sparkling cava (why not?), accompanied by bread with garlic and tomato, a small bowl of olives and … Continue reading
Haaj. Hola. Hello! Coming to the end of the first week on vaca. Wi-fi has been spotty to say the least. The hotel in London only had access in the lobby, a real pain. The place I stayed in Alkmaar … Continue reading
Last year was my third visit to Brussels and my fourth trip to Belgium. FINALLY, I found time for a bucket of moules (mussels) for dinner. Sadly, I didn’t think to snap a picture. I did get a foto of … Continue reading
One of the shops at Floriade, the Netherlands’ once-every-ten-years horticultural exhibition, had a variety of plastic lawn ornaments for sale. In addition to the usual ducks, chickens and gnomes, they also had goats and… you won’t believe it… guinea pigs!! … Continue reading
I’ve been working on this blog item for a long time but was prompted to whip it into shape after reading a story on Lance’s Travels, another travel blog, about getting lost in Fez even while using a map. I … Continue reading
The first city I visited last year on my Croatia/Slovenia sojourn was Dubrovnik. I was able to a day there on my own getting acquainted with the city before the package tour started. The bus from the airport stops at Pile … Continue reading
I’ve seen the Alps and they are magnificent. When I flew from London Gatwick to Dubrovnik last September, the flight took us over the Alps. The weather was perfectly clear which allowed for some amazing views of these young, tough … Continue reading
Outdoor produce markets are a fixture throughout Europe and they are becoming more and more common in the US. The outdoor market in Ljubljana, Slovenia not only has row upon row of fruit, vegetable and flower vendors, but also basic … Continue reading
The last day of the Croatia-Slovenia tour I took in Sept 2012 included an excursion to Kumrovec, Croatia. Located in northern Croatia about 40 miles from Zagreb, it sits practically on the border with Slovenia. There is a modern town … Continue reading
One of my favorite memories of Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, December 2011.
A few holiday photos to keep you in the mood. Apologies for the photo quality. Happy Holidays to all! . .
Like many people, I’ve wanted to visit Oktoberfest for a long time. This year I got my chance. After arriving in Salzburg, Austria at 5am on the night train from Slovenia, I shoved my luggage into a locker, bought a … Continue reading
I often find myself drawn to architectural details in my travels. I’m not sure why; maybe it’s just that they often provide the most visual interest. In Ljubljana, Slovenia this past autumn, doors and doorways caught my attention. Here are … Continue reading
After seeing this outdoor food market on TV several times, I just had to pay a visit on this last trip. Borough Market was not as grandiose as it was on TV (the downside of airing old travel shows). There … Continue reading
In case padlocks on a bridge might already be feeling old, a wire strung across the end of a side street near the river has become home to pairs of shoes. Mostly sneakers, tied together by their laces and flung … Continue reading
Pedestrian bridges in cities around the world are acquiring spontaneous decorations from lovers – padlocks. This global custom is popping up in all sorts of places. While the first city where it cropped up may be an open question (Paris claims … Continue reading
I flew to Dubrovnik, Croatia the day before the packaged tour I signed up for began. My express goal was to visit Mostar in Bosnia. There are day trips by bus from Dubrovnik most days. When you look at a … Continue reading
For my regular followers and any new visitors – it’s been four months since the end of one of the longest vacations I’ve ever taken. I’m still in a fog of reminiscence as I scroll thru fotos and try to select … Continue reading
I spent all of last week in London. There were a few things planned – meeting friends for drinks, perhaps seeing a show or two, visiting my favorite outdoor spaces, like Trafalgar Square (always need to see what’s sitting on … Continue reading
This post was writtepn several days ago. I thought I had published it but then, I’m still coming to terms with my #&$%$# tablet… The night train arrived in Salzburg, Austria yesterday morning at 5am. This was better than expected. … Continue reading
The Old Man of the Mountain fell apart in 2003, a victim of thousands of years of weather and an ultimately unsuccessful patch job. This rocky profile on the side of Cannon Mt inspired Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short story, The Great … Continue reading
When Dad served in the US Army during WWII, he spent the best part of two years in Iceland before moving on to Normandy, Belgium and the Rhineland. When he and I went to Europe in 2002 to walk the … Continue reading
