  • Myanmar, Part II: The Beautiful Burmese

      It is very difficult to identify a culture’s people we adore as much as the Burmese.  Eternally open, joyous and exuberant with life, they are at the very heart of our experience in their country and certainly the memories and images we took away from it.  While we spent a total of four days in Yangon and Mandalay, the two principal cities, [...]

Austria, Bavaria and The Dam

December 14th, 2015|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

December 14th, 2015|Italy, Switzerland|

England’s North Country

September 1st, 2015|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

August 19th, 2015|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 [...]
