Kansas City Second Impressions

The last time I was in Kansas City was 1977 and I was 13 years old. It was my very first time traveling around the continent in an RV. Of course, in those days we didn’t have air conditioning in the truck or trailer. And oh man, was it ever hot. Hotter than we’d ever […]

Port Townsend, WA

Originally named “Port Townshend” for the Marquis of Townshend by Captain George Vancouver in 1792, it was also called the “City of Dreams” with the thought that it would be the largest harbour on the US west coast. Officially settled in 1851, many of the homes and buildings reflect the Victorian times of the city’s […]

Bellingham, WA – Aslan Brewery

Aslan Brewing Co. is in downtown Bellingham, a block from the Community Food Co-op on the corner of Forest and Magnolia streets. We made it here just 6 minutes before happy hour was over so we put in our food order quickly. They were out of Portbello fries, so we opted for: Waffle Fry Poutine – […]

Bellingham, WA – Kulshan Brewing Company

Coconut Kennys is a local chain of pizza joints with locations in Bellingham, Burlington, Ferndale, and Sedro Woolley. They serve some of the best deep dish pizza I’ve ever tasted. Just a half block from Trader Joe’s, we’ve gone by this place a few thousand times, but never stopped in until today. Boy, were we […]

Athens, Greece – Double decker day 2 couldn’t be more different

When I purchased my ticket for the double decker bus tour, I was wondering if I’d even use the second day. What was I gonna do -the very same circuit all over again? But as it all turned out, the second day, while following the very same route, was the exact opposite of the day before. […]

Athens, Greece – Double decker bus around Athens and Piraeus

On Thursday, I decided to take the hop-on hop-off bus around Athens and Piraeus. For 18 Euro, I got a 2 day tour around the city with an audio guide. It seemed a little counter-productive since I already know the city so well, but I thought it might be fun. Thursday was a gorgeous warm and sunny day. […]

Athens, Greece – Along the waterfront

On our last trip, I didn’t spend much time down along the waterfront of Athens, so this was one of the first things I wanted to get at upon my return. The tram stops just 3/4 of a km away from the hotel so we wandered through the back streets up to catch it. Today […]

Island of Aegina, Greece

Aegina lies just 27km (17 mi) from Athens out in the Saronic Gulf. The island has been inhabited continuously since 3000 BC. To get here is a 40 minute hydrofoil ferry or a 1 hour regular ferry from Piraeus (€4-15). Once on the island, there is public bus service with 3 lines, that leave from and […]

Athens – Syntagma, Plaka, and the Acropolis Museum

After spending a month in Athens, I find it a little overwhelming to write about all that we did. But I’ll put one finger in front of the other and start off here, on our first day, wandering through the city, with the Acropolis looming over us from every vantage point. For Harold, this was […]

Chimayó, NM

Chimayó is a small, rural town 24 miles north of Santa Fe, NM in the foothills of the  Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Founded at the end of the 17th century by Spanish settlers, it is known for it’s high-quality weaving, red chile, horse and sheep raising, fruit orchards as well as traditional arts of wood carving, paintings of […]
