Austria, Bavaria and The Dam

2019-01-02T21:10:13-07:00December 14th, 2015|Categories: Austria, Germany, Netherlands|

  The drive out of Tuscany and up into the Austrian Tyrol was absolutely spectacular.  First a drive by Lake Garda, a favorite from a prior summer, then up into the foothills of the Alps where the the Dolomites reach for the heavens, and then into the Alps [...]

Switzerland and a New Take on Tuscany

2019-01-02T21:10:13-07:00December 14th, 2015|Categories: Italy, Switzerland|

  Once across the Channel and back into Europe, we blew across France as quickly as we could and headed for Freiburg, Germany, one of our favorite spots on the continent. This time we were not so much there for its vitality and beauty as for access to [...]

Out And About in Oxfordshire

2019-01-02T21:10:13-07:00December 13th, 2015|Categories: England|

  While in Oxford we made a couple of expeditions into the neighborhood. First was to Blenheim Palace, long home to a succession of Dukes of Marlborough and birthplace of Winston Churchill.  It is huge and magnificent, but even we were beginning to tire of these grand country estates [...]

Oxford: The Ultimate College Town

2019-01-02T21:10:14-07:00December 13th, 2015|Categories: England|

England’s North Country

2019-01-02T21:10:14-07:00September 1st, 2015|Categories: England|

  We didn't have to travel far across the border and back into England before we encountered the remains of Hadrian's Wall, that most spectacular of all the Roman ruins still visible in England.  It stretches 73 miles across the narrowest point in England and required 16,000 men [...]

We Skedaddled to Scotland

2019-01-02T21:10:14-07:00August 19th, 2015|Categories: Scotland|

  Finally sick of the blue skies, sunshine and warmth of southern England, we decided that the only solution was to head north, preferably all the way to Scotland.  And Scotland delivered!  Clouds, overcast, rain--it was all there as promised and consistently so. Who could ask for anything [...]

The Ancient, The Old, and The New

2019-01-02T21:10:14-07:00June 22nd, 2015|Categories: England|

  From Devon we continued southwest and into Cornwall, famed at this time of year for its warm and sunny weather, and for the beauty of its towns.  We spent time in perhaps the most famous of them, St. Ives.  Situated beside the sea, it has a lovely [...]
