Old Travel Series: Netherlands (Europe, Part 3)

We had an array of things on our agenda for today, including the Teyler Museum, the Grote Kerk tour (that’s the huge, beautiful cathedral I mentioned we could see out our hotel room window in the last post), and the Frans Hals Museum. With that being said, I shall describe my very busy day to you the best I can now.


They Say Venice is Sinking…

They say Venice is sinking. The most beautiful, charming, incredible city I’ve ever had the pleasure of feasting my eyes upon is sinking. Sure, they have the best minds in Engineering working on the problem, but the fact remains that Venice is still sinking.

Wanderlust Wednesday: Costa Rica

I haven’t yet been to Costa Rica, but it’s extremely high on my list of places to go, and with travel prices from the continental United States not being too high, I honestly don’t really know what my excuse is for not having been there yet. You can be assured I will be changing that fact in the near future.

Old Travel Series: First Time in Europe, Part 1

The lady sitting across the way from us is reading a book with a lacy doily book cover on it. I imagine that she’s trying to hide the book she’s reading from the public. It must be a sexy novel or something; basically a porn book. Why else would she be ashamed of it? Right now she’s reading about how Hank the plumber is ready to clean her pipes or how the UPS guy has a huge package for her.

A day of relaxation (Kauai, 2010)

Today was a wonderful, mellow day. We headed down to Poipu Beach for a little bit of rest and relaxation. After finding ourselves a nice, sunny, sandy place on the beach to plop down, we took a quick dip in the beautiful, mild waters of the South shore. 2 sea turtles were swimming near the shore, so we took some time to watch them for a little while as they ate the kelp that grew near shore.

Wanderlust Wednesday: Jordan

It’s another Wanderlust Wednesday and today I’m dreaming about the far off Middle Eastern country of Jordan. Ever since I saw Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, I’ve been enthralled with Petra, one of the new wonders of the world. The ancient city of Petra is an absolutely awe inspiring ancient city that will leave you in awe. It is definitely in my life plans to go there someday.
