I haven't mentioned the goat

NEW ZEALAND | Sat, 4 Dec 2021 | By nomad_kiwis | Views [24]

or the ram...  Barry is an adolescent goat, friendly, curious, non thistle eating goat. He is friends with the large unco-operative ram called Lawn. Originally there were two of each of these animals (Barry & Larry, Lawn & Mower) but unfortunately ... Read more >

Dendera and Abydos

EGYPT | Thu, 2 Dec 2021 | By graynomadsusa | Views [19]

DENDERA AND ABYDOS ARE THE FIRST new sites we visited on this trip and we highly recommend them despite the inconvenience of getting there. Fahd arranged for his friend, Yosef, to drive us there on Wednesday, about 200 kilometers each way. Fahd even ... Read more >

A November Day in Bogota

COLOMBIA | Wed, 1 Dec 2021 | By krodin | Views [35]

November Day in Bogota Arrived late at night, so I didn’t see much when I got in other than the lights on the top of the surrounding mountains.  The cab driver was kind enough to explain that they were the lights from the Virgin of Guadalupe ... Read more >

Luxor—The West Bank

EGYPT | Tue, 30 Nov 2021 | By graynomadsusa | Views [18]

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DYING TO GO to the West Bank of Luxor for 3500 years. The Valley of the Kings, where the sun seems to set, is where the tombs of Egyptian royalty can be found. And Thebes Hotel is the ideal base to explore ancient sites both near and ... Read more >

Cruising the Nile: Kom Ombo and Edfu

EGYPT | Sun, 28 Nov 2021 | By graynomadsusa | Views [35]

AGAINST ALL ODDS WE ARE IN EGYPT. Virtuosa didn’t run aground in the Suez Canal. The passenger mutiny never came to fruition and we weren’t boarded by pirates. So despite the fact that we docked in Dubai not Abu Dhabi, we managed to make ... Read more >

A day in the life of...

NEW ZEALAND | Sun, 28 Nov 2021 | By nomad_kiwis | Views [27]

It's Mr 9 yr olds day to make dinner. He takes a can of baked beans out puts them into a bowl and puts them in the microwave to warm them. Mum comes along " that's not enough dinner for everyone Mr 9" so Mr 9 goes to the freezer and gets out some frankfurters ... Read more >

Oman Again

OMAN | Tue, 23 Nov 2021 | By graynomadsusa | Views [27]

FIFTEEN YEARS AGO TO THE DAY we celebrated Thanksgiving in Muscat. Coincidence? Anyway, here we are again—our first terra firma since Cyprus—and much appreciated.           Corniche in Muscat  ... Read more >

A-R-R-G, Matey!

EGYPT | Thu, 18 Nov 2021 | By graynomadsusa | Views [31]

ON THURSDAY SAUDI ARABIA SLIPPED BY unseen on the starboard side but our disappointment remained on-board. I guess our regular appearance at Guest Services had some impact—not only did they refund the money for the tour of Jeddah, they gave us ... Read more >

Cocos-Nuts

COCOS (KEELING) ISLANDS | Wed, 17 Nov 2021 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [52]

Australia's most far-flung inhabited outpost I arrived yesterday. Welcome to the Cocos (Keeling) Islands. Discovered by Capt. William Keeling in 1609, these flat islands are more than 2,000 kilometres from the nearest point on the mainland. Everything ... Read more >

Life of contentment

PHILIPPINES | Wed, 17 Nov 2021 | By ritchiebasilio | Views [36]

There are bedrooms with perfect comfort, but I couldn't understand why I preferred spending my entire night here on this unbarred balcony, sleeping, and covered with a pyramid mosquito net that protected me from insect bites while I gazed at the mesmerizing ... Read more >

Sailing the Suez Canal

EGYPT | Tue, 16 Nov 2021 | By graynomadsusa | Views [17]

WE HAVE BEEN DAWDLING ALONG hardly making a ripple in the sea. Evidently there is a rigid schedule for transiting the Suez Canal and it makes no sense to arrive early. Something woke me in the early hours and when I looked outside I realized the lights ... Read more >

Paphos Covered-Up

CYPRUS | Sun, 14 Nov 2021 | By graynomadsusa | Views [18]

PAPHOS WAS A REAL DISAPPOINTMENT TODAY, unlike when we visited in 2015. One of the reasons we seldom return to a place we really enjoyed in the past is because it’s not likely to be as good the second time. But with our stop in Saudi Arabia canceled ... Read more >
