Today's adventure is a trip to Victoria, BC on the MV Coho out of Port Angeles, WA. I am excited to finally go over and check out Victoria. I plan on finding some poutine and giving this classic Canadian dish a taste. Cheese curds and gravy over fries - how can you go wrong? And … Continue reading May 4th, 2018

Didn't sleep very well last night. You know that trouble you have getting a good night's sleep when you are in a hotel or a new place. On top of that I heard a damn dog barking - even without my hearing aids in. One of the joys of being in a populated area. I … Continue reading March 10th, 2018

Change of plans. I loaded up the truck right after work and made a run for it. The weekend is supposed to be nice all over and it will be busy on the roadways. It was actually pretty busy tonight on the way here to the cabin. I wanted to avoid it tomorrow morning and … Continue reading March 9th, 2018

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

We … Continue reading Europe – Day 9 – February 2nd, 2018: Luxembourg to Köln, Germany

Most of the buildings were not what I expected - modern and minimalist. Function over form. We cut … Continue reading Europe – Day 8 – February 1st, 2018: Brussels, Belgium to Luxembourg

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 first so we went to a coffee shop we saw last … Continue reading Europe – Day 6 – January 30th, 2018: London, England

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 hard pavement. The exercise is great but pavement is not a … Continue reading Europe – Day 4 – January 28th, 2018: Edinburgh, Scotland
