Our Lady of Deliverance Procession

A travel blog entry by curtcarlson


... of priest-led worshipers solemnly making their way across the Roman Bridge. I was soon to learn that Dianne had rushed back to find me, but I had already gone out, roused by the music. The Banda Musical Tavira brought up the rear. Too far away to get good pictures, I rushed outside to find a good vantage point, not easy when the procession was moving away from me. I would have to catch up.

Huffing and puffing, iPhone camera in hand, I reached ...

The Most Beautiful Spot in Tavira--Tavira Castle

A travel blog entry by curtcarlson


... distance in every direction. Camera Obscura is a place we have yet to visit, though its eccentric manager/host has helped propel it to a status as a must-see tourist site.

He, by the way, is the one who has mastered 10 languages, not the 6 that I believe I previously mis-reported. He also has an MBA from Exeter University in England.) Just as we ...

Christmastime in Tavira

A travel blog entry by curtcarlson


This is, without doubt, the most unusual Christmas season we’ve experienced. Different customs, traditions, and language, no snow, foliage blooming, shelling on the beach, seagulls, Christmas trees made of bamboo and olive tree branches, and, of course, missing family and friends back home.

Unusual, yes. But also one of the most interesting in memory. We’ve been so fortunate to be able to make this trip, and even more fortunate still, to have ...
