Blasting Through Bangkok

Bangkok was to be our last stop before returning to our long lost home in New York....and it'd be brief too. If you haven't read the first two Thailand posts, here they are: Riding Pachyderms in Chiang Mai, Thailand Relaxing in Phuket, Thailand And here's my photo GALLERY for Bangkok - in case you [...]

Relaxing in Phuket, Thailand

First visit - Riding Pachyderms in Chiang Mai, Thailand for context if you haven't already. Wednesday We flew 1 hr 40 min from Chiang Mai at nearly the top of Thailand, 754 miles south to almost the bottom, just above Malaysia. Phuket is beach destination. After 15 months of un-tropical London....we were very much [...]

Leaving London

Recall we came to London 14 months ago because I read a provocative book - The New Global Student. And what an amazing time we've had here! The movers packed our stuff and sent it off to an air crate yesterday. Our kids had their best "mate" Sean over in the afternoon. They went out [...]

Sledging through the Swiss Alps

Our second winter trip was to Zermatt, Switzerland. My wife wanted to see the Alps up close (she's seen them from a plane, aplenty)....and it was sort of an obvious "winter" trip in Europe. Zermatt, in the winter anyway, is a serious ski town. But we don't ski! Although we did actually buy ski pants [...]

Bundling Up in Krakow, Poland

Poland is a place I've ALWAYS been interested in traveling to. Why? Because I'm half-Polish - depending on where one draws the Poland-Ukrainian border. In fact I have Polish blood on both sides! We planned to visit Krakow a couple days after Christmas. Additionally, my brother joined us as the experienced Krakow tour guide. You [...]

Christmas Markets in Belgium

Ironically, this year we spent our Thanksgiving....at the Christmas Markets in Belgium! Only a 2.5 hour, £90, train ride on the Eurostar from London, we arrived at Brussels on Thanksgiving morning and then shortly thereafter boarded another 45 minute train, heading back west(!), to Bruges. The plan was one night in Bruges and then one [...]

Visiting Istanbul

Well we made it. Istanbul was our second really big, much-anticipated trip. We wanted to go somewhere exotic, it was highly recommended by many people including my brother, and after all, TripAdvisor's readers have it ranked as the number one travel destination IN THE WORLD. And it was terrific! We flew direct from London to [...]
