Is It Midnight?

Okay, for weeks, I’ve been hating how dark it was in the morning.  The late sunrise made it seem even harder to rise and shine.  Okay, I never shine, but I do rise.  Now the sun is going down too early.  There is no … Read More

I Can Laugh Now

Picture this, I had to go to Chicago on a business trip this past week.  There wasn’t a lot of advance notice, but it was not the first time, so I sailed through the trip arrangements and off I went. Arrived Monday afternoon for … Read More

Looking Back

I have no idea where to begin.  I really haven’t properly logged my experience in Cornwall, and I don’t have my notes with me and I’m bushed.  For the moment, we’ll leave it at incredible.  Newquay was a gorgeous piece of earth, as was all … Read More

Where Lands End

Day 3 in the UK.  I wandered a lot my first afternoon. Bright and early the next morning was my meeting with the Haggis Tour bus for my Cornwall tour.  It’s a relatively small group of 10, which I think is fairly good as … Read More

Fuel Required

Although I was doing my usual scampering around at the last minute Saturday, getting to the airport that night was relatively simple. Hardly any wait for the train, chech-in, or security. I walked the whole distance from the main terminal to E gates, hoping … Read More

Trip More Or Less Sorted

All in all, when I travel, I like to stay in a given place a few days.  Much of my selection of the Intrepid trip I chose to Egypt earlier this year was that every night was not a different city.  If I had … Read More

One Month With The iPhone

After the post about considering a mac, I feel like I’m confessing to  a religious conversion here! Yes, I was one of the sheep who stood in line on the day the new iPhone 3G came out.  In my (admittedly slim) defense here, I … Read More

Sometimes Life Is a Yo-Yo

It’s been a few weeks now, but British Airways posted a pretty good deal to 20+ European cities.  I was feeling the need (note NEED not desire) to get away for a bit.  I pondered all the different routes I could take, but scheduling … Read More

Coming Together

The past few weeks have been busy as usual. Work has been demanding of late, and I’ve been trying to get ready for a photo show that was on Friday. It was one of those things I kept meaning to put out there for … Read More

Lonely Planet Challenge!

Coolness! This evening I discovered that I came in first in a Lonely Planet photo challenge on flickr. It’s a weekly thing where they give out a theme and you can submit photos to the theme. This past week’s was “Most High” and my … Read More

Travel In The Land Memories Built

Despite the tons of pictures I still have to go through from the Egypt trip, the weekend found me continuing my spring cleaning.  I had a closet with two stacks of comics to file.  I won’t say how long I had put this task … Read More

Random Inspiration

It’s very interesting where we find inspiration sometimes. For a few years now, I’ve been a casual reader of Wil Wheaton’s blog.  Yes, Wil Wheaton AKA Wesley Crusher of Star Trek.  For one reason or another, I relate to some of the things he … Read More

All Those Camel Jockeys

My camel guide, bless him for his patience, was maybe not the best photographer. He had the right idea, but everyone of my group pictures have something that is, for me, a glaring flaw. Most of them, he stood behind another guy taking pictures. … Read More

Shadows on the Sahara

It seems hard to believe my trip to Egypt ended over a month ago, but that was January and even February is speeding to a conclusion. Where does time go? I’ve been busy with work lately. And when not busy with work, doing some … Read More

Pyramids – As Seen on TV

I’m slowly getting over the crud, but Friday heading for Boston (business meeting Monday that I was able to roll into some me time).  So, I’m at a standstill for the moment on editing photos. However, there are plenty of the pyramids and a … Read More

Farewell To Cairo

Last night we had our final full group dinner.  Sam, the guide, will be at another hotel tonight getting ready for his next trip out.  So, it was easier to do it the night before than tonight.  Not sure what dinner will be and … Read More

Egypt – Wiped Out

Where to begin after days of no internet access.  Yes, the withdrawal pains were hell at first. Actually, I barely noticed if not for the piles of e-mail to wade through just now. Last night in Luxor, we did the sound and light show … Read More

Balloons and Donkeys

Not so bright but early start to the morning.  Went with Sam and a few others for late dinner last night.  Neat place, not so touristy.  Had Koshary again.  So, got in aroun 11pm which wasn’t so bright for an early start.  Had to … Read More

Egypt Time

Time is passing quickly here, but it’s passing on Egypt time, which turns out to be very similar to Mexican time. Nothing is quite on time, but no one seems to care so I’m gradually getting used to it again. It does take a … Read More

Coming Undone

Excuse me if I’ve written this before.  It’s entirely possible.  Because every time I travel, there’s this surreal feeling of my life unraveling.  Maybe it’s just symbolic, but from the point I bundle up whatever possessions are going with me and lock the front … Read More

Art Show & Recap

Fàilte! Time is just flying by day by day, here. Thanksgiving came and went. I felt like I spent a chunk of it back and forth between here and home. The photo show was Friday night. I would have loved to have been there, … Read More

Next Stop?

Well, I’ve been debating this one for quite awhile. I kept waffling.  I discovered that I had built up a pile of points with my American Express card over the past few years.  It helps that up until this month, I could charge work … Read More

Here, There, and Yonder

It’s me here, still with the hobbling. On flat terrain I’m fine. Going up the stairs I’m fine. Going down the stairs, I may as well be 80 years old. I sort of started analyzing what is giving me problems this morning and determined … Read More

Days of Leisure?

The company I work for occasionally offers discount tickets to the odd event or amusement park. But for the first time in 8 years, they gave their employees and family members the opportunity to visit Atlanta’s High Museum for free! Shockers! The moment I … Read More

Rambling

Saturday afternoon and evening, I wandered about Merida with my camera. I recorded some good shots of the city bathed in evening light and a lot of scenes that I felt captured the city, some of the beauty, some of that lovely decay, and … Read More

Mérida – Last Day Wrap Up

Not a lot of interesting news today. After last evening´s post, I found a bit nicer restaurant, more of a sports bar type place where they were watching “football” – soccer to the US.   I´d done more of fast food type places, even though … Read More

Life is a Highway

After yesterday´s long dissertation, I meandered out to find sustenance… and it was Burger King.  Sorry to one and all, but it was bound to happen sooner or later.  You knew it, I knew it. And after my quatro grande, I moved on to … Read More

Living and Dying In The Yucatan

So, after yesterday´s long post about such thrilling subjects as worn out sandals and death marches, I meandered over and caught the 4pm bus tour of the city.  The one Lonely Planet recommends turns out to be this wee little bus leaving from Parque … Read More

One Dollar, One Dollar

Okay, so after yesterday´s post was some laying about.  I tried to find the starting point of the bus tour but failed.  Either not the right place or I expect things to be on time, which is not per se the way the world … Read More
