The Slow Boat To Paros

11.05.2000 in Culture, Locale

After recovering from the shock of how expensive Rome was, we found a reasonable pension to stay in the night before our flight to Athens and made reservations for when we’d be back. The flight to Athens was without trouble and we landed in Athens…

Meandering Along The Mediterranean Coast

01.05.2000 in Culture, Locale

After sleeping on the streets of Barcelona we have been much more thankful for our 1 star hotel rooms. We left Barcelona on a night train headed for Nice, France. We had to change trains in Cerbere, which we still aren’t sure if it is…

Four Days In Fez

20.04.2000 in Culture, Locale

We just came back from one of the most colorful experiences – Morocco! But first, a description of beautiful Rhonda… Rhonda was a fairly small hill-town in Andalucia, Spain and full of spectacular sights. We feel fortunate enough to have stayed in a small pub/hotel…

Taking A Break In Seville

14.04.2000 in Culture, Locale

We had a really nice hotel room (a blessing when you are sick) and Brian was sweet enough to go out and get me some food (bread and sorbet). Unfortunately we had to miss one of the “best” flamenco shows in Seville, but perhaps we’ll…

After another long night on the train (old, snotty, snoring people suck!) we finally arrived in Lisbon early Saturday morning. Initially looking rather uninviting, we discovered a lot of color in this city. Yes, Lisbon is pretty dirty and seems on the poorer side economically,…

Molestado en Madrid

05.04.2000 in Culture, Locale

It was Kim’s idea to trade off days in the journal, but she hasn’t felt like writing so I will fill in the last few days. Monday saw more of Orléans and also a train ride to Blois. There was a castle there, but not…

Not So New Orléans

02.04.2000 in Culture, Locale

We finished exploring the Louvre on Saturday and saw some amazing Egyptian artifacts. Some of it dating back to the beginning of recorded history, pretty cool! The l’Orangerie turned out to be closed (for the next two years) so we went to Sainte Chappelle and…

Finding Web Bar

01.04.2000 in Culture, Locale

Yesterday we set off in search of an internet cafe to email home, but we couldn’t find it. We thought it was a place called “W3 Computer” but they just sold parts and said they didn’t know where “Web Bar” was (turns out it was…
