CHILE | Mon, 25 Feb 2019 | By nortina | Views [55] | Comments [3]

Hace menos de un mes me tocó la última radiografía, baciloscopía y examen de sangre del tratamiento contra la tuberculosis. Esto de manera preventiva. Es extraño. Si bien sabía desde antes del día de ... Read more >

May 4th 2019  ...in Panama Beach, Panama City, Mexico Beach, FL for miles and miles  around? Reaching 160mph winds? Riding our bicycles through these areas for 2-3 days left me in a state of shock...disbelieve! Seven ... Read more >

Ketchikan and Misty Fjords National Wilderness

USA | Sun, 14 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [28]

THE CAPTAIN DID A WONDERFUL JOB OF PARALLEL parking in Ketchikan, squeezing the Maasdam between the Celebrity and Carnival shipsl, while another, smaller, cruise ship is anchored offshore.  It isn’t yet 8AM and we can see hoards from the ... Read more >

Florida Keys

USA | Sat, 6 Jul 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [46] | Comments [1]

June 30th  Ok, really, we are going to leave the USA, I promise! The heat and humidity made us give up our plan to get to Cuba   - even though there is a travel ban for US citizens, but exceptions always underline the rules ... Read more >

Winter in Buenos Aires!

USA | Thu, 11 Jul 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [40]

July 1st 2019 At the Miami airport: Smooth “sailing” with a few speed bumps, like having to wrap - and pay for - each peace of luggage (except the bike boxes) in blue nasty plastic, arguing with the nice woman at the ... Read more >

Seattle to Ketchikan

USA | Sat, 13 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [26]

WE ARE GETTING PRETTY COMFORTABLE USING UBER.  As simple as the ap is, it’s still a little foreign to old farts like me.  But we successfully took Uber from Seattle’s Union Station to SeaTac, where we rented a car, then drove to ... Read more >

NZ Wilderness Misadventure

NEW ZEALAND | Wed, 10 Oct 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [440] | Comments [1]

New Zealand is such a gorgeous place, and that's part of why it's my favourite country. I love tramping (hiking, to you folk from the rest of the world) and I've done many fabulous walks both in NZ and elsewhere. My favourite walk in all of NZ is the ... Read more >

An Oslo Stroll

NORWAY | Mon, 10 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [160] | Comments [1]

For much of this trip I was dreading having to spend time in Oslo. The Norwegian capital just doesn't stand out the same way as London, Rome, or Vienna. People travel to France just to go to Paris and to the Netherlands to go to Amsterdam but you'd be ... Read more >

Hooray For Hollywood

USA | Mon, 8 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [43]

HOLLYWOOD BECKONED AND WE COULDN’T RESIST — even though I admit I didn’t know half of the starred names on the Walk of Fame.  But first we had to stop at the Frank Gehry designed Walt Disney Concert Hall.  Gehry, you may ... Read more >

Coast Starlight

USA | Thu, 11 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [37]

YOU CAN SEE THE BEST OF AMERICA ON AMTRAK.  And some of the worst, too.  The Rockies, the California Coast and the Cascades are beautiful.  Likewise Union Stations in both Denver and LA.  Unfortunately you must enter the cities through ... Read more >

Further South through the heat, humidity and the Everglades to Miami.

USA | Sun, 30 Jun 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [77]

  We left Sarasota and our dear friends Erika and Achim ...they rode us out of town for a while on the Legacy Trail to Venice:   Not too far down the road, when it was just James and I again for a few miles, one of us realized we left ... Read more >

Caveat Emptor X 2!

USA | Thu, 27 Jun 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [76]

WE GOT A GOOD DEAL ON THE RV AND TRUCK — I traded them for five magic beans.  Only kidding!  And we hope there isn’t going to be a giant in our future.  Like Jack, we are setting off on another adventure, one without a beanstalk ... Read more >

Unencumbered Once More

USA | Mon, 1 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [63]

WE GOT PLENTY OF NUTHIN’  And nuthin’s plenty for us!  We sold the truck on Wednesday and Jim collected the RV this morning.  We watched as our home for the last 3 ½ years drove away.  We have eaten — ... Read more >

California Zephyr

USA | Thu, 4 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [56]

IT SEEMS LIKE BOBBY BURNS WAS THINKING of us the past few days when he wrote  “The best laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft a-gley.”  After driving 400 miles from Denver to Rapid City to renew our drivers licenses — they ... Read more >

California, Here We Come

USA | Sun, 7 Jul 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [40]

COMPARED TO TRAVEL TICKETING SITES like kayak and orbitz, Amtrak is woefully lacking.  There are only a handful of trains but there are few routing options.  They don’t provide a map or even list the intermediate stops.  Which explains ... Read more >

Patterson, Kemper Williams Park, the Gulf Coast and into New Orleans!

USA | Mon, 22 Apr 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [161]

April 15th - 18th of April Patterson, Kemper Williams Park Peaceful!  A campground for $18. We never spend that much money to pitch our tent, but then, we were here because James felt poorly on that bumpy road what would not leave him ... Read more >

Arriving at the last State in the States, Saturday, May 11th 2019

USA | Sat, 18 May 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [130]

Florida! Land of the swamps, snakes and alligators, but also of the soft, warm air (at least in May...), the gentle rain, the extreme downpours, the thunderstorms, the lush, tropical greenery and the warm turquoise sea. During several of our ... Read more >

The Merry Month of Margit...

USA | Mon, 27 May 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [128]

...is here in Sarasota, FL   Celebrating my 60 years the whole year....getting more concentrated in May for the Merry month and then even more focused around the weekend of May 18th.  Working on my fotos and turning them into ... Read more >

A New Chapter

USA | Wed, 22 May 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [104]

THE LATE MAY SNOW SHOULDN’T HAVE SURPRISED US.  We’ve lived in Colorado long enough to know not to count winter out until June.  But the cold and dreary weather did catch us unawares — we were wearing shorts last week —... Read more >

One Step Closer

USA | Fri, 7 Jun 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [91]

WE’RE ONE STEP NEARER TO LEAVING.  Jim from Colorado Springs gave us a deposit on the RV, we can live in it until 30 June — and the check cleared — so that’s a burden lifted.  We still have the F-150 but we have offers ... Read more >

Feliz Cumpleaños to Me!

USA | Mon, 17 Jun 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [81]

WITH ALL THE GOOD RESTAURANTS IN THE DENVER AREA, we still chose the Morrison Inn for John’s birthday meal.   For years the Inn was a dive well-known to the Sunday Harley crowd for its over-sized margaritas.  As the town became more ... Read more >

Dancing Lights!

SWEDEN | Fri, 7 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [172]

Weeks ago I asked the Northern Lights on a date, and she accepted. However, she (the aurora) and the weather have both been, respectively, flaky and annoying. Three nights already I've been in the north of Scandinavia, and for three nights, no date with ... Read more >


RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Fri, 10 Aug 2018 | By krodin | Views [167]

Ulan-Ude Our first surprise came when the taxi driver who picked us up from the train station didn’t take us to the hotel I had booked through booking.com, but to another one.  I kept trying to show him the paper with the reservation, ... Read more >

CHINA | Thu, 30 Aug 2018 | By krodin | Views [160]

Visiting the Queen Mother of the West  The car ride from Urumqi through what used to be barren desert landscapes was filled with new construction, highrises, and coal power plants, which may be a contributing factor to there being more air ... Read more >
