Cruising the Danube (April 2022)

A Classic River Boat Cruise from Nuremberg to Budapest

Prague has an area they refer to as Lesser Town but not in an disparaging way, our guide Jana didn’t like the term either. Lesser Town means it’s lower in elevation in its proximity to the river and more prone to flooding. The area is also where most of the foreign embassies are located in beautiful old buildings. The streets are narrow and are made of cobblestones that give a unique yet comforting sound as cars drive by. You can judge the speed of a car by the pitch of the tires whining upon the cobblestones. Many of the houses also have names like Three Stork, Blue Horse, Golden Flower, Golden Snake ( two houses were named that) and Golden Crown to name a few. The namesake of the house similar to a coat of arms is often located above the door or mounted on the corner of the outside of the house and you guessed it are usually painted gold.

Walking Like an Egyptian (Jan 2022)

Exploring Ancient Civilizations while Cruising on the Nile

It was nearly 5:00am when we woke to a crowing rooster and then shortly thereafter the Call to Prayer. This time the mesmerizing sound was different because not only could we hear the prayer from the local Mosque, but an accumulation of haunting calls from distant minarets. Our cabin was still dark as we laid awake and we could hear the clip clop sound of an animal as Allan pointed out a man and his donkey making their way down the street. Good morning Egypt!

Journey to Middle World (Oct 2021)

A trip through Ecuador and its Amazonian Rain Forests

After our Amazon rain forest walk we hopped back on the boats and cruised across the river to a sandbar where two balsa wood rafts were waiting. They were like it sounds, balsa logs tied together like in the movies. We sat on the edge of the rafts dangling our legs in the water and pushed off the bank into the river and about ten minutes later we all jumped in the water.

Trippin in Quintana Roo (May 2021)

Exploring Xcaret’s Ecological Parks and Resort Life in Playa del Carmen

You will typically regret the things you didn’t do more than the stupid things you did do. With this in mind we made another trip to Xcaret Park with the goal of doing the third and last underground river.

Honkey Tonkin in Tennessee

A week in Nashville and Memphis

Marla and I had a week to kill in September of 2016 and we wanted to go somewhere that we had never been before. We settled on something really different and new for us : Nashville and Memphis. We became fans of country music and had a wonderful time. Both locations were very cool.
