Where will we go next?

Tuesday, September 17: Day 148 – Déjà vu

We leave Split today by bus. They often have two bus drivers. That makes sense. Someone to deal with tickets. Also, the extra driver can keep the other awake or switch off on these long drives. Trash...

Thursday, September 12: Day 143 – Abandoned?

At noon, we went by bus to an abandoned village on Hvar Island. We had heavy day packs since we needed much water because we would be hiking in the hot afternoon, and then we had to bring rain gear...

Wednesday, September 11: Day 142 – Hvar Faith

We had to leave early so our alarm sounded at 4:45am. (This time is not often set in retirement!) I went outside to retrieve my clothes that were drying on the line and was amazed at how quiet it was...

Tuesday, September 10: Day 141 – Island Girl

We had the day to spend on the island. It was great to sleep late. We got up in time for lunch overlooking the water vowing to return for an afternoon swim. But first Rob needed his climbing fix. We...

Monday, September 9: Day 140 – Korčula

Today we leave Dubrovnik for a week-long tour with Intrepid Tours. Rob found this through Global Journeys which is an Australian company which acts as a clearing house for international travellers...

Sunday, September 8: Day 139 – Seek and Find

It is very hard to find a Protestant church in Croatia. Our Dubrovnik search on Google Chrome, Google Maps, and Facebook only yielded one hit. We met under Scooby’s Pet Shop at 6pm. Our greeter...

Saturday, September 7: Day 138 – Left Behind

Today began with a huge clap of thunder at 7:15am. The lightning hit a lamp post outside our hostel window. The receptionist had gone out to smoke a cigarette when the lightening hit. She said that...

Monday, September 2: Day 133 – YIKES!!!!

We get up early to catch a train. After 5 minutes past pickup time, Rob called. Aleksandar forgot. He said that his crazy wife forgot to write it down. Rob said, “Is that HER job?” Note...

Monday, August 26: Day 126 – Women in Black

We said our goodbyes to Ertunga and Omar. They have taken care of all of our travel plans, ordered food for us, translated, etc. etc. etc. Can we go it alone??? Rob and I are starting to have...

Saturday, August 24: Day 124 – Goldfinger

Phrygians came from the west and settled in western turkey. They brought with them the building of a tumulus for their dead. One of the most famous tumuli called the Midas tomb is from the 7th...

Thursday, August 22: Day 122- Oh Baby!

We have uncovered something while here in Turkey that has never been seen before: Our First Grandchild! This is an exciting find to say the least. Discoverers: Our daughter, Donna, and her husband...

Wednesday, August 21: Day 121 Happy-docia

After sleeping in a cave room in Cappadocia with my cave man, we awakened at 4:45AM. There was a thunderstorm when we went to sleep so we were not certain if we would get to ride in a famous...

Monday, August 19: Day 119 – We’re in Ruins

NOTE: Often I post and Rob then goes back to correct typos, spelling, spellcheck oddities, etc. If you read it from an email link, you get MY wacky version. If you read it a few hours later from the...
