Having arrived in Europe is both a triumph and a shock to the system. For the past two years we’ve explored the Earth’s faraway wild places with wonder and amazement. Every time we moved we were moving into the unknown,…

We had been playing Blog Tag with Rob and Nina Blackwell for months as we made our way across the US, shipped to Belgium, and proceeded to drive through Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Portugal and Italy. Meanwhile, Rob & Nina had started…

Having spent a couple of days exploring the excavated ruins uncovered after the Vesuvio volcano wreaked its wrath on Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD, we felt obliged to see what this monster looked like up close. We made the…

While nearly everyone has heard of the horrible tragedy of Pompeii, (If you haven’t, read our last blog.), several people had told us that the town of Herculaneum on the coast was equally astounding. Comparatively small with a population of…

Heading south from Rome we were basically looking for a nice place to spend Gary’s birthday. The ancient city of Pompeii had always been on our list of areas to visit. Monika had been there with her parents many years…

Rome #4, The City, Italy 1/2014

There are a few Cities in the World that truly stand out; San Francisco, Istanbul, Beijing, London, St. Petersburg. Rome, living, breathing and constantly changing, saturated with history, much of it dating BC, is surely among them, but after the…

Rome #3, The Forum, Italy 1/2014

Aside from the Colosseum, the Forum is where all of Ancient Rome happened: Temples, market, craftsmen, debates, justice courts and even murders. Walking through the ruins that had been built, torn down, destroyed by earthquakes, rebuilt, vandalized, robbed, covered with…

Rome #2, The Colosseum, Italy 1/2014

Like the Vatican, there is only one. There are many sports arenas and coliseums in Italy, but there is only one “Colosseum”. Since the Middle Ages it has been a symbol of Rome, the Eternal City. It had been written,…

As the saying goes,” Rome—a lifetime”. We didn’t have a lifetime so what to see in a few days? Of course the Colosseum, The Forum, maybe a few museums and the City itself. But above all, we wanted to see…

An Italian fellow camper in Pisa suggested we’d visit Bomarzo, the Sacred Grove, on our way to Rome. Colloquially called the Park of the Monsters, it is located in the Province of Viterbo in northern Lazio, Italy. Quite extraordinary, the…

On the way to Rome, Siena had never really been on Gary’s main wish list but so many people raved about it we had to check it out. Like Florence, there were a lot of things to see, so we…

Heading south out of the enchanting town of San Gimignano, we couldn’t resist a quick stop in Volterra to visit its Guarnacci Etruscan Museum, with thousands of funeral urns dating back to the Hellenistic and Archaic periods. Main attractions are…

Christmas 2013 We’re playing catch up again. In case you wondered where we were and what we did for Christmas, here’s a brief report. Leaving Pisa behind us we followed secondary roads through beautiful Tuscany of Italy. The scenery was…

10 μέρες πλέον στο Μαρόκο και μπορώ να πω πως νιώθουμε πλέον σαν στο σπίτι μας! Οι εικόνες που αντικρίζουμε γύρω μας, σκουπίδια, κελεμπίες, παλιά αυτοκίνητα, φωνές, ο γενικότερος χαμός που σχεδόν παντού επικρατεί, δεν μας κάνει πλέον τόση εντύπωση,…

Ακόμα δεν έχω καταλάβει τι συμβαίνει. Ξεκινάω για ένα ταξίδι που όμοιό του δεν έχω ξαναζήσει ή φεύγω για τριήμερο στη Χαλκιδική; Γιατί κάπως έτσι νιώθω! Έλεγα θυμάμαι στο Θάνο και σε φίλους, πως το τελευταίο βράδυ πριν την αναχώρησή…

It takes about ten corners in Palermo for me to use my horn the first time. During our time in Tunisia we’d forgotten (or blocked out) how terrible the drivers are in Sicily. At least in Tunisia the mayhem had…
