Edinburgh, Scotland – May 2017

Our host, Sam, offers a free (for tips) Harry Potter walking tour.  The tour runs every Saturday at 15:05 (3:05pm) meeting at William Chambers on Chambers street.  We didn't get to do the tour with him as it was Tuesday and he was busy preparing for a Tourism convention for Wednesday morning.  You can check … Continue reading Edinburgh, Scotland – May 2017

York to Lancaster – May 2017

Today we plan to see a bit of York.  We find a spot to park for free (3 hour parking) at a nearby grocery store and walk into the walled city. We walked up to the Minister building and snapped some photos from outside because I believe there is a charge to go in. Next … Continue reading York to Lancaster – May 2017

London to Nottingham – May 2017

What have I got myself into? I'm in one of the busiest cities in the world and I've just agreed to drive on the wrong side of the road.

This looks like … Continue reading Osoyoos – August 2016

Tuk Tuk Tour de Battambang – Cambodia – February 2015

Battambang isn't as touristy as I thought it  would be.  We had a few things we wanted to do and see so we asked our hotel if they have a Tuk tuk Driver.  I'm glad we did because they called Mr Thean! A soft spoken guy who speaks great English and understood what it was … Continue reading Tuk Tuk Tour de Battambang – Cambodia – February 2015

Angkor Wat – Siem Reap – Cambodia – February 2015

Someone told me Angkor Wat was one of the Seven Wonders of the world.  As I tried to figure out what the other 6 were, I ended up looking it up.  What did I learn?  Well there are a lot of lists of "Seven Wonders of the World" and Angkor Wat was not on any … Continue reading Angkor Wat – Siem Reap – Cambodia – February 2015
