A travel blog entry by sarah

This is a top pick!

Well, we're back home. Back at work (more of a struggle for me than I thought). Glad to see everyone again, and to meet Phil's niece Carina for the first time (born while we were in India). Since we are back to the same jobs, in the same house, and with ...

Back Home (and Back to Work)

A travel blog entry by philthy

This is a top pick!

We've been home almost four months now and it's amazing how quickly we could slide back into a "normal" life. To recap what has happened since getting home: Sarah's parents met us at the airport and brought us a car to drive home in. I got to scare the ...

We still have several weeks to go before we're off, but the tickets have been purchased. The travelogue plan so far is for Sarah and I to do separate ones so check out "Sarah" for the other side of the story, whatever it is. Aug 25 is when we ...

The tickets for Costa Rica are bought!

A travel blog entry by philthy

The standard start of any trip, after initial planning and vacation has been arranged, is the buying of tickets. We made it past that step so I figure it's time to start another travelog. As I say in the intro, I don't know how much we will be posting ...

Home sweet (and cold) home

A travel blog entry by cheekymonkey

So I'm back home from an exciting weekend getaway of bonding with my mother. Still have to unpack, but such a chore really does require some wine. However, I'm all out. Unpacking will have to wait 'til another day. Or I can just take the same ...

packing heat (or cold, in this case)

A travel blog entry by cheekymonkey

Ahhhh, the joy of packing! Yes, it's only for a weekend getaway with the Mom, but what has been a gorgeously warm spring has somehow backtracked a bit, leaving me in my usual quandry. Will I be warm enough in what I've packed? This has always been my ...

A travel blog entry by frankbooth

Chaos! Everywhere, inside and out, my house is disrupted--nothing in its right place and no right place for anything.  O.K., as they use to say back in the day SNAFU--Situation Normal All F'd Up.  Well, I still have two days before I abandon to ...

Whirlwind of last minute odd and ends....

A travel blog entry by gibb

We have gotten to the living out of laundry basket phase of packing.  More and more is going into "The Pod".  We hooked the camper up on Monday and brought it to our house, thank goodness most everyone on our street has a job and most all the ...

No wine, but the duets go on!

A travel blog entry by cheekymonkey

So it's a week since I sat here last, typing away, on the eve of our fun jaunt to Ludington. There was wine then; none now. There was packing then; I still need to pack an overnight bag before I leave for work tomorrow. And yes, Alfonso Ribero ...

Home!

A travel blog entry by srvance

The flight from Narita to the US was pretty uneventful. I was concerned at first because the guy next to me exhibited a definite alcohol problem. It started with the flight attendants chastising him that he couldn't drink alcohol that he had brought onto ...

A travel blog entry by frankbooth

The best of intentions....

A travel blog entry by cheekymonkey

Kel and I always have the best intentions when planning stuff. Like how we said we'd leave from Royal Oak at 7.30 so we could get down to Cincinnati (and our friends) by noon. In addition to having good intentions, we also like food. And we simply ...

So a week ago, I was packing for a weekend trip to Chicago. I was debating about what to pack and rummaging around for a glass (or two) of wine to make the process less painful. Well, here I am again. Packing. But for an entirely different trip. ...

So what have I learned?

A travel blog entry by cheekymonkey

I'm home. Exhausted as hell and just about to crash, but I'm home. This road trip was a blast. Might not seem like it from reading the stopping points - Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois - but it really was something else. Maybe more of a bonding ...

Step back from the ledge, cheekymonkey!

A travel blog entry by cheekymonkey

As a precursor to any good trip, I'm drinking some yummy Chianti. And I'm trying to talk the monkey down from the ledge. 'Cause Celebrity Duets is on and I'm too lazy to change the channel. After all, if I'm gonna' use the energy, it's going to be ...

A travel blog entry by gibb
