Bula Fiji

FIJI | Monday, 8 Oct 2007 | Views [152]

The trip to L.A. was uneventful except that the thorough security thing annoyed me. First I got frisked (or “patted down”). Then I was told to sit down while someone checked out my luggage. She opened every zip (I was pleased I had so many!) ... Read more >


Lancaster, Washington, Philadelphia New York

UNITED STATES OUTLYING ISLANDS | Tuesday, 2 Oct 2007 | Views [116]

Lancaster : I’m a bit disappointed with Lancaster. My fault – I’d built it up in my head, and unless it was like in the movie “Witness” it was never going to live up to expectations. For a start – I didn’t see ... Read more >

Niagara Falls

CANADA | Friday, 28 Sep 2007 | Views [101]

AWESOME!! It's oberused but it's the only   word you can use for the Falls. Unfortunately it’s been overcast, so the sky doesn’t give any contrast. But the volume of water is unbelievable.  After looking at the American Falls ... Read more >

Politics and Money

CANADA | Monday, 24 Sep 2007 | Views [127]

Ottowa : We are travelling west, from French Canada towards English Canada. The further west we go, the less colour there is in the leaves. It is pot luck whether you get the good colour or not – but it’s not surprising that they haven’... Read more >

Je suis Canadienne

CANADA | Saturday, 22 Sep 2007 | Views [113]

We drove across the country to Montreal. Arrived late in the day – initially a bit of disappointment. At first glance Montreal lacks the wow effect of Quebec.  But after we’d driven around I began to see the place with new eyes. It’... Read more >

Oh Canada!

CANADA | Friday, 21 Sep 2007 | Views [138]

Well, Quebec is lovely! It’s a walled city with what looks like a castle (it’s actually a hotel) on the hill which overlooks everything. Here are cobbled streets and horse-drawn buggy tours and beautiful European looking buildings.  ... Read more >


New York New York

UNITED STATES OUTLYING ISLANDS | Thursday, 20 Sep 2007 | Views [129]

My prejudices about New York tumbled today.  First I sauntered casually to the little café to have some breakfast. Then I went for a walk around the block. I put all my valuables – passport, money, cards etc into the Hotel Safe. I decided ... Read more >

Norwegian Wood 2

UNITED STATES OUTLYING ISLANDS | Wednesday, 19 Sep 2007 | Views [126]

This morning I went down to the Nobel Peace Prize Museum. Inside, among other things was a wonderful display of the past Nobel Laureates.  In a quiet dark room there’s hundreds of fibre-optic lights which keep changing colour. Among these ... Read more >

Norwegian Wood

NORWAY | Tuesday, 18 Sep 2007 | Views [122]

Another early start with a 7.55am flight to Oslo. My Boarding Pass said “Go to Gate 1b” – which I read as “Go to Gate 16”.  At 7.20 am there was no sign of other people or a plane. The I thought – maybe it’... Read more >
