Billfish Denman Joins The Adventure!!

May 2, 2018 OK, back to the Denman adventure! I left Granada on a train today at 6:35 which really meant taking a “bus” to the next station as the one here is under construction to make way for new high speed trains. It also meant getting a taxi since my destination was 4 kilometers…

Labor Day In Spain

May 1, 2018 I left home on April 1st, and now it is May 1st – amazing! I am kind of getting tired of wearing the same clothes…. And, I wish that I would not have intentionally left my tennis shoes in London – even though they were on their last legs, so to speak……

Granada

April 29, 2018 It was an early start as I had to catch a train at 6:30. Given the time of day and distance I chose to get a taxi instead of walk – Plus I didn’t want to chance getting lost, at which I’ve become an expert – Ha!! Plus, the darkness before sunup…

It’s A Wrap – Adios, Seville Bonita!

April 29, 2018 I prefer to provide particulars of the places that I visit – Plus cultural, historical, trivial and even boring details. It seems however, that I have made myself so busy trying to see and do as much as I can in my limited (though actually quite generous) timeframe that I can hardly…

Seville, A City to Love, The City of My Heart!!!

April 28, 2018  I loved Lisbon, Portugal!! The tiled sidewalks everywhere, the amazing vistas from so many viewing points, the passion of the people, the history, the overcoming of so many epic obstacles, the colors, the the diversity of ethnicities coming together, the seafood, the spectacular landscape and countryside!!!  Now that I am in Seville,…

Cast Your Net Out Wide And Far!

April 26, 2018  I stayed up until past midnight local time to trying to work my blog! Apparently I’ve reached maximum capacity of my “media”. I continued to get “unable to download” messages about the pictures, yet it took this (chemically enhanced) blonde a while to figure the official reason out.  So, I slept in,…

Secrets, Castles, Caves and Magic

April 25, 2018 So yesterday, once I discovered the train station here in Lisbon, Portugal and knew that I could buy a ticket to get to a popular destination and a place of country pride- Sintra, that’s exactly what I did. Previously I had been researching tours and found that they were all quite expensive…

I Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Map!!!

April 24, 2018 Today I was still a bit apprehensive about how big this city is and how ill-prepared I was to try to explore it, but once I set out, my mood and attitude changed. I got lost several times on my way to meet the tour group I had arranged to join, but…

Lisboa, Portugal

April 23, 2018 Here I am again, mega “responsible” cautious and anxious firstborn, sitting at the A Coruña airport having already had coffee and catching up on some email, still a half hour to go before my check in line opens and just over two hours before my flight leaves… But at least I am…

A Coruña, Spain – Additional Details

April 22, 2018 The following is a summary from information derived from Wikipedia. Located in in the province of Galicia, Spain, A Coruña is the 17th most populated city in Spain. It is the political province of the same name having also served as the capital of the “Kingdom Galicia” from the 16th to 19th…

What – ME, Brave?

April 22, 2018 This morning I said “good bye” to my Camino buddies and to Santiago de Compostela. Two of our group actually had to leave last night so those farewells were said earlier. Now I am on to the solo phase of my trip. Michelle was kind enough to walk me to the train…

Barnacles!!!!!

April 21, 2018 it seemed strange to hear a rooster in the city environment that we are in, yet we had a loud one outside our bedroom window early, early this morning. Between that and the lovely song birds, it was a superb way to wake up and know that my entire day was free…
