September 13th, 2018


There’s quite a lot going on for me right now. Many things are in the works and they all seem to involve travel. I’ll talk about them in no particular order. Work is winding down but there’s still plenty to do. With the recent…

If you want to contact me please feel free to send a message or a comment. I have to approve them so I see them anyway. I wanted to pass along because I gave out my website address to some relatives at the funeral….

September 1st, 2018


I got back home yesterday and I was absolutely worn out. I didn’t do anything other than wash some clothes but was too tired to even pull them out of the dryer. I spent the evening trying to relax. It was back to work today…

European Tour 2018 – Wrap-up


We came crashing back down to Earth pretty hard after we got back to Seattle. We got to our hotel and barely made it to 8:30 PM. We had to run out to get a bite to eat but couldn’t muster up the energy…

Europe – Day 12 – February 5th, 2018: One Last Time…Amsterdam, The Netherlands


Unfortunately our Winter European Tour 2018 is winding down. We have just one more night before we head back across the pond tomorrow afternoon. I know Jim is anxious to get back home to his family; as for me, I would like to stay…

Europe – Day 11 – February 4th, 2018: Antwerp, Belgium to Amsterdam, The Netherlands


We got some pretty good rest last night and headed out around 9. When we got to the station it was right on time to catch our first train of the day to go to Amsterdam, and to finish the trip a train change…

Europe – Day 10 – February 3rd, 2018: Köln, Germany to Antwerp, Belgium


After a delicious bakery breakfast (gonna miss the bakeries!), it’s back on the train to our next stop. Our hotel is situated not only on the open plaza between two cathedrals, out the back door is a shopping center (with the previously mentioned bakeries)…

Europe – Day 9 – February 2nd, 2018: Luxembourg to Köln, Germany


Last night we decided that our next destination would be Köln (Cologne), Germany after some recommendations from the girl who helped us yesterday and my friend Kevin, who had been there before. We got up this morning and decided to skip going into central…

Europe – Day 8 – February 1st, 2018: Brussels, Belgium to Luxembourg


Our hotel was in a central area near downtown so the train stops were not very far apart for where we wanted to go. The area we were in was very interesting to see in the daylight. Most of the buildings were not what…

Europe – Day 6 – January 30th, 2018: London, England


Today we got up early to go to the launderette. We were both out of clean clothes and this was a good day to do it since we had the opportunity. It was just a few blocks away but we had to get breakfast…

Europe – Day 5 – January 29th, 2018: London, England


Cheers from our next stop…London! We flew into London and arrived around noon or so. Not as early as we wanted and the plane boarding and leaving late was unacceptable. We flew easyJet and they were pretty disorganized. Flight attendants were nice but the…

Europe – Day 4 – January 28th, 2018: Edinburgh, Scotland


We got some really good sleep last night (8 hours!) in Dublin. We both missed out on a couple of things we wanted to see but we had to have some downtime to get over walking an average of six miles a day on…
