September 22nd, 2018


My next destination ended up being Lassen Volcanic National Park. I drove until I found a USFS campground called Hat Creek that was close to Lassen and decided to stop. It was only $16 so I am sure it was cheaper than the ones…

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…

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 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 7 – January 31st, 2018: London, England and Brussels, Belgium


That’s right…back to the Continent today. We got up and went back to the bakery I went to yesterday and grabbed a fresh croissant with ham and cheese, coffee, and another piece of raspberry torte. Our train was not until this afternoon so we…

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…

Good Thing I Bought the “Savory” Beef Gravy…


I just had a giant bowl of mashed potatoes with the above-mentioned “savory” beef gravy. No real need to put that on the jar since that is the hope…savory. “Beef” and “savory ” kinda go together already. I’ve been watching my diet closer so…

And the Madness Begins!


It’s that time of year – the (Un)official beginning of the summer vacation season – Memorial Day. Families packing up their bags and tossing them into the ol’ minivan or SUV to head out on the open road. It is really a great American tradition that…

March 19th, 2017


(I started this post on March 19th and was too busy to finish it) It has been a great time the last few days. Angie and Alexis came out to visit and we have been all over the place. The first few days we…
