Arizona Bound

USA | Friday, 11 Dec 2015 | Views [194]

CONNIE, WHO HAS PATIENTLY RIDDEN SHOTGUN for five years, is making up for lost time.  She loves to drive and has much more experience towing vehicles — even if only behind a tractor — than I and, bless her heart, she drove the entire ... Read more >

Ready to Go

USA | Wednesday, 2 Dec 2015 | Views [282]

YESTERDAY WAS THE FIRST DAY WITHOUT SNOW since we’ve been in the RV and the temperature still hasn’t gotten above freezing.  We have gone through two tanks of propane but managed to keep nice and toasty.  Jellystone Park (no kidding, ... Read more >

Home Sweet Home

USA | Thursday, 26 Nov 2015 | Views [306]

THANKSGIVING DAY AND WE ARE SNUG and warm in our new RV, despite the snowy and cold weather.  Two hundred forty square feet may not seem like much to those of you living in your McMansions but after nearly five years of   hotel rooms, ... Read more >

The Blizzard of Oz

USA | Friday, 20 Nov 2015 | Views [215]

NO, WE’RE NOT IN KANSAS, TOTO, BUT IOWA isn’t that much different.  It’s so flat here that it doesn’t take a lot of snow to make a blizzard.  Just wind, and Bella (When exactly did they start naming winter storms?) ... Read more >

Welcome to South Dakota

USA | Saturday, 14 Nov 2015 | Views [318]

WHERE TO START?  We have been home for three weeks now.  Well, not exactly “home” — but in the USA at least.  We still feel like strangers in a strange land.  We are still surprised that overheard conversations ... Read more >

And The Beat Goes On

USA | Friday, 30 Oct 2015 | Views [259]

THERE SEEMS TO BE SOME CONFUSION about our previous entry.  Our trip isn't TOTALLY over — we're just in another country, the USA.  After breakfast in Paris, lunch in Reykjavik, and dinner in Colorado — no wonder we’re confused.... Read more >

Au Revoir

FRANCE | Saturday, 24 Oct 2015 | Views [333]

LYON MUST BE THE STAIR-MASTER OF FRANCE: everything seems to be uphill or down.  And a river runs through it — two rivers, actually, the Rhone and Saone, separated by the peninsula of Presqu’ile where we are staying.  Lyon is supposedly ... Read more >

Nice And Eze: Nice and Easy

FRANCE | Saturday, 17 Oct 2015 | Views [340]

ACTUALLY IT’S PRONOUNCED “NIECE” AND “EASE” but it really is nice and easy.  Nice may be the fifth largest city in France but we couldn’t find lodging there that met all or our needs; parking, it seems, costs ... Read more >

St. Tropez, Cannes and Antibes

FRANCE | Thursday, 15 Oct 2015 | Views [282]

ET DIEU CREA LA FEMME.  And God Created Woman .  These five words — and the sex kitten Brigette Bardot — transformed the sleepy fishing village of St. Tropez into a port-of-call for celebrities and jet-setters.  No longer ... Read more >

Arles and Avignon

FRANCE | Friday, 9 Oct 2015 | Views [281]

ARLES AND AVIGNON HAVE THREE THINGS in common.  It’s obvious that each begins with the letter “ A ,” and both are in Provence on the Rhone River.  Arles and Avignon also have a history with Rome.  Arles became an important ... Read more >

Orange and Pont du Gard

FRANCE | Wednesday, 7 Oct 2015 | Views [310]

ORANGE SOLVED TWO PROBLEMS FOR THE ROMANS.  It was a perfect place to pension off loyal Roman officers and their presence would be a deterrent to those pesky Gauls who continued to tweak the Roman nose.  The main sites are the city arch, not ... Read more >

The Grands Causses

FRANCE | Monday, 5 Oct 2015 | Views [211]

THE FIRST RUMBLES OF THUNDER had scarcely died when Patoo, all 50+ bouvier kilos of her, whimpered at our door.  We knew we shouldn’t let her in but she looked so wretched we could hardly resist.  Isobel soon returned from the Saturday ... Read more >

Chauvet — Caverne Pont d'Arc

FRANCE | Friday, 2 Oct 2015 | Views [334]

PICASSO HAD NOTHING WITTY OR  SELF-DEPRECATING to say about the prehistoric cave paintings at Caverne Pont d’Arc as he did with Lascaux and Alta Mira.  He had been dead, after all, for more than 20 years when they were re-discovered ... Read more >
