  • The Lygon Gauntlet
    on Jan 13, 2016
    A while ago Sharon had to travel to Melbourne for a trade show, so I stayed the weekend as well so we could explore a bit (and actually spend some time together since I was working in Melbourne five days a week). This was her first time in Melbourne...
  • Australia doesn't get out much
    on Nov 28, 2015 in Acclimating
    What do COPS, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch have in common? They're still found on Australian television. And I'm not talking about obscure cable channels, I'm talking about major networks."I'll shoot you if you change the c...

    Manly. I'm talking about the town here, not my disposition. It's only a mile from Bondi as the crow flies, but some might say it's a world away. You see, there's a great divide that runs through Sydney. It's called the harbor. And it separates Sydney...
  • RTW Trip: London
    on Nov 5, 2013 in Family RTW Trip London
    Arriving in London was a bit surreal for both Adam and I. We had both visited London in the past but this time around it was going to be our first English speaking country in a month and a half. Plus, my sister and her family live there which made th...
  • Round the world Trip: Marrakesh
    on Oct 29, 2013 in Morocco RTW Trip
    We are pretty pumped to be on our way to Marrakesh but from this point on we will be carless. So in the best interest of getting our deposit back we decided to spring for a car wash before returning the car. It ended up costing us all of 40 durham wh...
  • RTW Trip... After the desert
    on Oct 21, 2013 in Morocco RTW Trip
    With the sand dunes in our review mirror we were on the road headed west to The Todra Gorge which plunges 300 meters down to a clear river. In the midst of the dry season we weren't expecting much water but at least a beautiful vista and a beautiful...
  • Round the world Trip: Erg Chebbi in Morocco
    on Oct 17, 2013 in Morocco desert RTW Trip
    The drive from Fes to Merzouga was our longest in Morocco. We left the green hills and fields surrounding Fes and began our drive south, armed with a detailed road map. Fortunately, once you get out of the cities your options for which road to take d...
  • RTW Trip- Fes
    on Sep 10, 2013 in Morocco RTW Trip Fes
    Read previous post here.Somehow we made it to a roundabout that our riad had told us to go to. We wouldn't be able to find our way from the roundabout to the riad, so we were told to contact them when we arrived. Our hotel, Riad Said, sent...
  • Round the world Trip: Morocco Part II
    on Sep 3, 2013 in Morocco RTW Trip
    The next morning we had what we'd learn was the standard Moroccan breakfast, regardless of where you stayed: some coffee or mint tee and an assortment of Moroccan breads. This was great for the first few days, but after a while I started to long for...
  • Round the world Trip: Morocco Part I
    on Aug 28, 2013 in Morocco Africa RTW Trip Food
    Imagine the narrowest street you've ever been on. Now imagine a parade coming down that street. Now imagine yourself driving through that parade and you have a flavor of what it's like to drive through some of Morocco's medieval cities. * * *Morocco...
