Sea Daze

Friday, 26 Apr 2013 | Views [414]

Cruises seem to be especially appealing to the old, the fat and the infirm.  I don't remember seeing nearly as many wheelchairs, walkers and canes on our previous trip, not to mention electric scooters.  Sure, there were some young couples ... Read more >

Travel Virgins

Sunday, 21 Apr 2013 | Views [390]

We must have looked like travel virgins, dressed as we were in new clothes and towing shiny new luggage.  Even our passports were brand new with nary a stamp in them.  And here we were boarding a cruise ship.  Oh, the shame of it! We ... Read more >

Looking for America

Friday, 19 Apr 2013 | Views [485]

April is the cruelest month, certainly not the most scenic time to go looking for America.  Heading east from Nebraska to New Jersey, the stubbled fields were still dappled with gray melting snow and the ravages of winter could still be seen through ... Read more >

Springtime in the Rockies

Monday, 25 Mar 2013 | Views [360]

Colorado treated us to a spring snowstorm – nothing much by Rocky Mountain standards but enough to make driving a challenge.  Our rented Toyota minivan doesn’t have winter tires or all wheel drive either.  Oh, how I missed our old ... Read more >

The Sins of The Father . . . And The Mother

Saturday, 23 Mar 2013 | Views [397]

Jim and Cathy have been friends and partners in crime for 20 years.  We have shard campfires and condos, skied countless thousands of vertical feet together and belayed each other on rock walls throughout the Rockies.  Their family has adopted ... Read more >

Taking Care of Business

Wednesday, 20 Mar 2013 | Views [491]

We’re back in Colorado, a state we once called home.  Our mission is to take care of essential business and catch up with some old friends.  After seven years, as many continents and fifty countries, the wheels, quite literally, fell ... Read more >

It isn’t too difficult to see America as if through the eyes of a foreign tourist.  In a way, I am a stranger here myself.  And I can’t imagine why any sane tourist would drive across Texas.  Even at 85 mph (140 km/hr) it took ... Read more >

Baseball, that most American of games, is one of our homecoming rituals; a way to touch base (pun intended) and reassure ourselves that we are home.  Not that Texas is home.  Nor is the US, now that I think about it.  And we are told that ... Read more >

Making Connections

Wednesday, 6 Mar 2013 | Views [516]

The airline gods must have been smiling down on us.  We had a mere two hours between the JetBlue flight from Bogota to Orlando and our United connection to Houston, scarcely enough time for immigration, collect our luggage, clear customs, get to ... Read more >
