Portugal’s Spectacular Atlantic Coast

2019-01-02T21:10:10-07:00September 17th, 2017|Categories: Andorra, Portugal, Spain|

  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

2019-01-02T21:10:11-07:00September 10th, 2017|Categories: Portugal|

  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

2019-01-02T21:10:11-07:00June 10th, 2017|Categories: Nepal|

  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 [...]

A Visit To Spain’s Basque Country

2019-01-02T21:10:11-07:00May 20th, 2017|Categories: Atlantic Ocean, Basque Country, Spain|

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 [...]

Moscow: Capital of the Russian Federation

2019-01-02T21:10:11-07:00February 17th, 2017|Categories: Russia|

  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

2019-01-02T21:10:11-07:00February 15th, 2017|Categories: Russia|

  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, [...]

A Month Crisscrossing Poland

2019-01-02T21:10:12-07:00January 15th, 2017|Categories: Poland|

  We recognize that the huge moving sand dune on the Baltic coast of Poland is not what one would expect to find at the top of a posting about that country, but we are a little tired of headline photos of cityscapes, and decided to begin with what is [...]

Highlights of Hungary: Budapest, Thermal Baths, and Mummies

2019-01-02T21:10:12-07:00July 19th, 2016|Categories: Hungary|

  We were almost immediately seduced by Budapest. The last capital we had visited was Belgrade in Serbia over two months before. We had deliberately avoided the capitals of both Bulgaria and Romania because we were simply more interested in what was in the countryside, and felt as [...]
