What do the Spirits say?

AUSTRIA | Thu, 29 Oct 2020 | By krodin | Views [14] | Video

As travel is currently restricted, I  spend lots of time exploring the mountains and valleys close to home.  The pandemic and pending election in the U.S. give cause for concern and I choose to find solace in nature. This new videopoem relates ... Read more >

Still Got The Right Stuff

USA | Sun, 18 Oct 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [37]

COCOA BEACH HAD THE RIGHT STUFF back in the 60s—but we all had it back then, didn't we?  Cocoa was a company town—and the company was NASA.  It was famous for Astronauts, surfing, beach babes-in-bikinis and as the setting for I ... Read more >

ROMANIA | Mon, 12 Oct 2020 | By steve_and_emma | Views [34] | Comments [2]

This weekend we thought we would spread our wings a bit and explore somewhere outside of Timisoara. We didn’t want to venture too far but we did want to check out the Romanian railway system ahead of a planned longer trip at half term, restrictions ... Read more >

Heart Reef Overflight

AUSTRALIA | Mon, 12 Oct 2020 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [40]

A few days ago, a lovely lady named Chonita showed me a video of her at the controls of a small Cessna aircraft over the Great Barrier Reef, and said "Oh my, you've just inspired me." The other day I was the first customer at Le Shack in Airlie Beach, ... Read more >

Please, Mr. Postman

USA | Thu, 8 Oct 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [30]

WE HAVE BEEN IN FLORIDA FOR A WEEK and yesterday was the first time the weather was good enough to go to the beach.  Connie has been out walking every day, of course, but she is like the Post Office used to be—neither rain, nor snow. . . .... Read more >

Time For a Change

USA | Fri, 2 Oct 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [41]

IT WAS TIME FOR A CHANGE.  A change of scenery.  A change of season.  A change in weather.  And most of all, a change in attitude.  We never thought we would be glad to leave Colorado, but there it is—six Covid-imposed ... Read more >

ROMANIA | Sun, 27 Sep 2020 | By steve_and_emma | Views [30]

Our explorations of Timisoara this weekend took us down to the Bega River and south of the city to wander around the Fabric District. The Bega River that flows through the city is actually a man-made canal which diverted flood water from the Bega River ... Read more >

A Golden Good-Bye

USA | Fri, 25 Sep 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [52]

THE CALENDAR MAY SAY THAT AUTUMN has arrived but, despite the recent dusting of snow, it is still summery here in the Mile High City.  It’s a different story along the Colorado Trail near Kenosha Pass, fifty miles west and another mile higher ... Read more >

Whitsunday Fun Days

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 22 Sep 2020 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [55]

I love Australia, plain and simple! COVID-19 hasn't exactly wrecked all of my travel plans; it's just placed them on the back burner. If things were normal, I'd be in Russia or somewhere in Europe at the moment. Despite the disaster of a year 2020 has ... Read more >

All Dressed Up With Nowhere To Go

USA | Fri, 18 Sep 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [44]

OUR RENEWED PASSPORTS FINALLY ARRIVED, three months after we applied for them.  They are so much thinner—the Jenny Craig version—and so much more pristine than the old ones, whose pages are filled and whose logos are nearly worn off ... Read more >

27 hours in Edinburgh

UNITED KINGDOM | Thu, 17 Sep 2020 | By swathi | Views [89]

Day 1   The Avanti West Coast zoomed from Euston to Edinburgh Waverly, every tilt synonymous with a turn in my stomach. Sydney, my friend from UEA and I were going on our second trip; the first being Budapest in 2017. The 5.5 hour-long train ... Read more >

Fire and Ice

USA | Tue, 8 Sep 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [50]

IT WAS HARDLY A BLIZZARD BUT ANY SNOW this early in September is unusual, especially after Labor Day temperatures climbed into the 90s.  Although snow is possible any time in the mountains, this is the earliest it has snowed along the Front Range ... Read more >

Craft Beers at a Communist Museum

ROMANIA | Sun, 6 Sep 2020 | By steve_and_emma | Views [13]

This weekend we thought we would venture south of the river and explore a different area of town. Our focus for the afternoon was to find the Communist Consumer Museum which I had read about and sounded intriguing. We wandered down into town through ... Read more >

You Do What You Can

USA | Wed, 2 Sep 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [74]

THE BRITS CALL THEM JABS—vaccinations, flu shots and the like.  So while the country waits for the sometime-in-the-future Covid-19 vaccine, Connie and I got the 2020 model flu shot at Walgreens.  Not only was it covered by Medicare, Walgreens ... Read more >

Exploring around Piata Victoriei

ROMANIA | Mon, 31 Aug 2020 | By steve_and_emma | Views [25]

One of the main squares in Timisora is Piata Victoriei and is well worth exploring. This square is where the uprising in Romania started in 1989, hence the name, Victory Square. You can still see bullet holes in the building that now houses McDonalds ... Read more >
