Jun 25, 2016 - 1st Class & The Battle

Left Chicago Thursday evening via 1st Class. That alone was a vacation: The champagne pre-take off, the hot hand towel to freshen up before dinner, the 3 course dinner, the fold down seats into an actual bed! There is still more: the fast track voucher that allowed us to by pass the long custom line & if we wanted a spa lounge to be used after clearing customs to freshen up. It was nice . . . Dianne & Ernie where there to meet us, although they where not holding a sign, "Gerhardstein". I told them that could effect their rating on "Trip...

Apr 7, 2016 - English weather, beer and a wedding

Since arriving in the UK, we have met up with family and old friends, made some new friends, socialized outrageously, exercised minimally and generally feel pretty good about it all. The build up to Ian’s cousin’s daughter’s wedding was exciting and it was great to be a part of the big day. Ian went to a local football (soccer) game with his cousin, Rob. First time for Ian going to see “The Town” play for 45 years. A 1-1 draw did not dampen our enthusiasm to celebrate in the pub afterwards. We both went to see one of Britain's top cyclists...

Oct 25, 2010 - Bodium Castle & Sheffield Park Gardens

Today dawned cool but clearing. We set out for Bodiam Castle, and started with a cream tea morning tea, for which I have much pennance to perform upon my return. I also joined Helen and I up to the National Trust after our tour. We went back to Sissinghurst for lunch, and the picked Sheffield Park Garden as an afternoon venture. The small roads in Kent proved to be fantastic....autumn colours, and "tree tunnels" as Robert and Millie later called them. Sheffield Park was even more wonderful. The House is not available for viewing, but the...

Aug 13, 2010 - Oostend to Hastings (Chunnel)

A quick breakfast and walk through Ooestend, which had a strange 1970’s east block “once luxurious” feel to it. A good reminder about real estate; it can depreciate if it is not maintained constantly. With the casino and ocean there, maybe it was more like a European Atlantic city? The demographics were much older than Marburg and Amsterdam where everyone seemed much younger, and the towns more vibrant. Interestingly, the town square had what appeared to be a Church that had been converted into high end retail. The beach looked like it...
