Island Hopping: Miyakojima

JAPAN | Fri, 20 Sep 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [9]

WHAT BEGAN AS ON-AGAIN, OFF-AGAIN SHOWERS accompanied by strong, gusting winds graduated from a tropical depression to tropical storm Tapah and may even — or have already — become a typhoon.  (Internet weather reports seldom provide ... Read more >

Pitched up on a beautiful campsite by a lake. Been mountain biking using the ski lifts to get up the mountain. Fantastic riding but very challenging! Beautiful sunny weather.

Back to the cost!

BRAZIL | Fri, 20 Sep 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [21]

Sept. 18th 2019 We’ve been so used to dilly dallying, that we can’t find a reason to cycle any faster than 20- 30 km a day. That is less than what I rode daily at home on my way to work, plus I took power yoga and inferno Pilates classes ... Read more >

Blumenau, Brazil, on September the 16th 2019

BRAZIL | Fri, 20 Sep 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [18]

And now we are in Blumenau. A wanna be German town. Dr. Blumenau and his wife were actually the first settlers of this town. It was highly recommended to us - especially to me. But  - even though it has it's German roots - it was mostly a facade ... Read more >

Oh, Oh, Okinawa

JAPAN | Wed, 18 Sep 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [8]

ORCHIDS LINING THE WALKWAY TO BAGGAGE CLAIM give the impression that Okinawa is an island paradise.  Outside the airport the reality, at least through my eyes, is something less.  Okinawa is the island of “cube cars” of all makes ... Read more >

Nagasaki Peace Park and A-Bomb Museum

JAPAN | Mon, 16 Sep 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [27]

THE CLOUDS OVER KOKURA JAPAN HAD A SILVER LINING on that August morning in 1945.  Bad luck for the residents of Nagasaki, though.  Kokura had drawn the short straw and was the primary target for the world’s second nuclear bomb. ... Read more >

Nagasaki

JAPAN | Sun, 15 Sep 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [28]

NAGASAKI’S DORMY INN WAS A WELCOME SIGHT, visible as it was from the #5 Airport Bus stop at Shinchi.  It was after ten, we had been traveling all day and hadn’t eaten since lunch.  ANA, All Nippon Airways, was affordable, efficient ... Read more >

BELGIUM | Sun, 15 Sep 2019 | By dawnandmark | Photo Gallery

Stayed two nights in this lovely rural town. Both days mountain biking in the surrounding forests and hills. Very good motorhome stopover in town, lots of nice little bars and loads of excellent Belgium beer. Hot and sunny couple of days.

OCHIISHI NATURE CRUISES SAIL ONLY ON WEEKENDS.  Their website is so poorly translated from Japanese that we had to drive all the way to Ochiishi to get the bad news.  This would have been our last chance to get a good look at a spectacled ... Read more >

The REAL Red-Crowned Cranes of Hokkaido

JAPAN | Tue, 10 Sep 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [31]

ONSEN IS JAPANESE FOR A HOT SPRING but it can also be a spa.  Or in the case of Akan Onsen, an entire town.  Akan Onsen sits on a lake which was formerly the caldera of a volcano and where Connie hoped to see Japanese waxwings.  We passed ... Read more >

Balneário Camboriú, Bates Motel and a riddle

BRAZIL | Sun, 8 Sep 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [68] | Comments [2]

September, Monday the 2nd 2019 Such a silly thing to do is to get hooked on a TV show like “Bates Motel”, right after finishing being entertained by “The Marvelous Mrs Measel” why isn’t there a 3rd Season and why then ... Read more >

The Grizzly Details — Shiretoko National Park

JAPAN | Sat, 7 Sep 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [49]

BROWN BEARS — GRIZZLIES TO US YANKS — were on everyone's minds.  Scores of weekend visitors— I didn’t realize it was Saturday until I saw the buses — hoped to see one of Shiretoko National Park’s Yezo brown bears.... Read more >

A Damned Good Feeling

JAPAN | Fri, 6 Sep 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [37]

THE 325 KILOMETER DRIVE FROM SAPPORO was in its way nostalgic.  No, we've never been to Abashiri, nor have we driven in Hokkaido before yesterday.  But the long drive north brought back memories of other drives in other cars in other countries.... Read more >

The Birds in the Band

JAPAN | Thu, 5 Sep 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [31]

TUJI KOJI WAS JUST STEPPING OUT OF THE WOODS as we arrived at Lake Utonai Sancturary.   When he saw my camera and Connie's binoculars he beckoned to us to see what he had in the small cloth sack.  Smiling broadly, Tuji-san — we didn't ... Read more >

Time Out at Misawa

JAPAN | Mon, 2 Sep 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [31]

WE ARE TAKING A FEW DAYS OFF — MAINLY BECAUSE WE CAN!  We're staying here at Misawa Joint Air Force/Navy Base.   It’s a little noisy with the F16s and the Navy P3 Orions taking off and landing at all hours, but we can handle it.... Read more >

Guardian Rabbits of Hirosaki

JAPAN | Sat, 31 Aug 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [31]

LIKE A ROLLING STONE, CONNIE GATHERS NO MOSS.  As soon as she wakes up, she’s out of bed and soon on her way — unlike a certain slug-a-bed who will remain nameless.  She is pretty religious about her morning walks as her iPhone ... Read more >

Going the extra Km - August 30th

BRAZIL | Sat, 31 Aug 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [69]

  We are taking detours from 101 north and space from “keep going” and are rewarded even though a lot of the little (but paved) roads are steep as hell - we even had to push our “plus size wire horses” at times......moans ... Read more >

Driving on the Wrong Side of the Road

JAPAN | Thu, 29 Aug 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [55]

JOHN IS PRETTY COMFORTABLE DRIVING ON THE LEFT as they do here in Japan.  He has had enough practice, after all — nearly a year in Australia and New Zealand, half a year in South Africa, several trips to the UK and even six months in Uganda ... Read more >
