The Greek villages are as old as time itself, and the countryside is so awesome but the people are the real gems! Driving through a small Greek village is like being inside a sandwich where the buildings are at the road on each side of you and the road is just barely wide enough to… Continue reading Small Greek Villages
We love driving Greece! The roads are good and the backroads are exciting…the goat paths…not so much. But we rely on the "Google Lady" to get us to and through most places we drive. She has been especially helpful, and also, especially problematic in Greece as she continues to tell us to turn left off… Continue reading Driving Greece – Backroads and beaches
We love frequenting fish tavernas! Mainly because they have fantastic fish! But the salads, the metzedies, the kebabs, and the souvlaki are also pretty darn delicious! We found the Aristea while driving along the beautiful seaside roads of Evia and had to go back for dinner that night (oh ok and the night after too!).… Continue reading Psarotaverna (Fish Taverna) Aristea
Now that the skies are again open and we are allowed to travel, our first trip is to Greece! No surprise there! We are again driving the roads and backroads of this beautiful land to scope out all the wonderful places, people and food. Stay on board for another trip of fun, sun, and food… Continue reading GREECE…yes Again!
The island of Roratonga is a circle…yup…round as a ball…well maybe not a ball…but pretty close. This means that the main road goes around in a circle (clockwise or anticlockwise) and so do the public buses. It is a well known fact that you can go either way most times of the day either 'on-the-hour'… Continue reading Getting a round Roratonga
This is a massive are (about 189,000 sq meters) with a large animal population of over 1600 different animals. You can take the day and stroll around or hop on the tram and do a circle tour. Either way the zoo is always popular with kids (large and small) and never ceases to amaze me… Continue reading The Dusit Zoo in Bangkok
Ah... some one said, "parting is such sweet sorrow" ... and so it was! The last dinner with our group was at one of Dan's favorite restaurants in Bangkok Jim's Burgers and was he very happy! But, we were happy too...there was an abundance of food that was dripping with cheese, fantastic fries and a… Continue reading Last dinner with our group
Ahhh... the time we had with great people, great food and wonderful travels! But, all good things must be remembered and we have the pictures to prove it. The road back to Bangkok was long and some what arduous, miles in the bus, and crossing boarders without washrooms. We really enjoyed our time together with… Continue reading Back to Beautiful Bangkok….
We stayed a few days in Siem Reap and experienced some of the most delicious food. One restaurant, New Hope, was a training restaurant for kids (who were going to school) and learning a trade. This is a G Adventures Planeterra Project that assists kids to get and education and a job! Read about it… Continue reading Siem Reap -New Hope Restaurant (yes food!)
Well, if anyone had told me that I would be making road side stops to visit the local insect market I may have laughed out loud. But, that is exactly what we did on the road to Siem Reap. We made a number of interesting stops but I must admit that the insect market most… Continue reading On the Road to Siem Reap (includes big spiders and wood carvings)
