U is for USA – how to obey the laws

U is for USA – how to obey the laws

As travellers, we all try to be law abiding. I think that there is sufficient media coverage that we are aware of most of these. However, there are many strange laws in the USA and also in many other countries. They do still exist, and have never been repealed. Get an overzealous police person and […]

How to have an onsen in Japan

How to have an onsen in Japan

There is etiquette involved in having an onsen in Japan, and it is worth every second of ‘trying’ to get it right. We travel to Nozawa Onsen annually where, as you can guess, there are many onsens. Onsen is the Japanese word for a hot spring. An onsen by definition utilises naturally hot water from […]

T is for Turkey –  Goreme in the Cappadocia’s

Goreme is one of those OMG places. Set in the stunning Cappadocia region of Antalya, Turkey it is an experience not to be ever missed. Goreme is surreal in every respect.

Exploring the Castle of the Count, Ghent – Belgium

Exploring the Castle of the Count, Ghent – Belgium

We had arrived in Ghent, Belgium for a weeks stay and, as you do, went exploring immediately. We started wandering along the cobble stoned pavements to explore this lovely little city. I was on crutches due to a ridiculous broken leg from a skiing accident so was probably looking at the ground to ensure that […]

S is for Switzerland – they do so have a sense of humour

S is for Switzerland – they do so have a sense of humour

  I had bugged Gordon about wanting to see cows with cowbells ringing loudly when we were in Switzerland and preferably they should be wearing flowers around their necks. He patiently explained that we would be there in late winter, early spring and that they would still be in their barns. He further said that […]

R is for Russia – learn to pace yourself in January

R is for Russia – learn to pace yourself in January

It is probably easier to provide a list of the celebratory dates in Russia in January and then explain each. The bottom line however is to learn to pace yourself through these frenetic parties. The Russians know how to drink and to eat and to party without after effects. We westerners are total amateurs. Regardless, […]

Good and bad noise at home

Good and bad noise at home

We awoke very early this morning to strange sounds. We have not long ago moved house and we are not quite used to our new place and its nuances and peculiarities. Each day we are discovering more and more. Those who have read our earlier posts know that this was a ‘big’ move for me […]

Word on the street says that Qatar is a very interesting prospect. We have read that you are located on the Arab Gulf, to the east of Saudi Arabia, and to the West […]
