Jul 9, 2015 - Last Update Germany

We were up very early this morning, we took Vickie and Sam to the Frankfurt Airport for an early flight. We had a wonderful time with them over the last three weeks. We miss them very much. :-( We are getting ready for our flight to Milan, Italy on Sunday. We will be going to the World Expo in Milan and exploring a different part of Italy and parts of Switzerland. We are still planning where we will go after Italy, probably a week or two in Ireland before heading back home in the United States. I am adding pictures that didn’t make the...

Jun 18, 2015 - Frankfurt Airport

We had a very exciting day, we picked Vickie and Sammy up at Frankfurt Airport. This was our first time driving to this huge airport. I worked the GPS directing Jerry every move. We made it there without any problems but we did have a few traffic delays. It took us over 3 hours to get there, but we still made it in time for their arrival. The car we rented is huge, they gave us a limo type Ford vehicle, it is so large I was afraid it would not fit in the garage parking, I was right. We had to circle around the airport and go outside and...

May 29, 2015 - Last day in Portugal

Here we are having our morning coffee as we spend our last few hours in the Algarve. Yesterday was a beach day. Many more people there and you can see things are getting busier. There is a big festival starting today and we have watched the preparations happening for the past few days. There is a stage on the beach and lots of beer stands so clearly lots of noise coming. The beach was great again but it got quite windy. That was probably good as it would have been really hot otherwise. Our evening was quiet - one last seafood dinner. We...

Mamma Mia Tour

Jan 23, 2015 - Getting to Chateau d'Oex...What a trip!

After sitting on the runway in Denver waiting for a teenage boy to go back to security to find a lost cell phone for over an hour, the Western Spirit Team finally took off (after deicing)for Newark. They held our flight to Frankfurt awaiting our arrival since there were 10 people connecting from our flight. Running to the gate was great fun! Once we arrived in Frankfurt, secured a rental van and got our luggage, our next adventure was to find the "crate" with the balloon in it. That was a futile adventure. The crate had arrived in Frankfurt...

Jun 23, 2014 - Destination, not the Journey

It is unbelievable that we were somehow able to get ourselves and, as far as we know, all of our luggage packed in time to leave for the airport at 7:15 am. We finished the school year with all of its stresses and challenges last Monday, went camping for four days, prepared the house and hosted Izabella's birthday party on Saturday, cleaned the house and packed for Europe on Sunday. All in a week's time! I am surprised we managed to keep our sanity for it was definitely a whirlwind week. I think the first time we actually had a moment to...

Jun 11, 2014 - Heidelberg & Frankfort

Our house swap included cars and cell phones! Today we drove Michaela's car..oops I mean Lukas drove and I tried to interpret the GPS in German. Our first stop was Heidelberg's Altsadt (downtown). We walked up the very busy pedestrian only street (Hauptstrasse) to eat some lunch at a wonderful bar restaurant with authentic German food! I enjoyed my 1st Heidelberger beer, schnitzel and spetzel served with a creamy mushroom sauce! We walked into the Heiliggeistkirche (Church of the Holy Spirit) and looked around. It is a late-Gothic structure...

Jun 5, 2014 - Frankfurt

We're ready to come home. I need to do laundry, i don't want any more restaurant food and being around people is exhausting! Anywho. We packed up,started driving, crossed the Rhine, went into Wiesbaden for middle eastern lunch- tabbouleh / salads/ lamb, and made it to Frankfurt. We've loved being here but coming into a Sheraton that has normal North American style beds ( ie comfy not brick like and pillows with volume that stays when you out your head on it) is heaven. Jason and I went to the gym, I went up for a hot bath as everywhere...

May 12, 2014 - Day 40 – Monday 12 May – Mainz to Frankfurt

We had a fairly quiet and easy morning today getting up a bit later and strolling out to find a simple breakfast. A few blocks away was a standalone glass enclosed café on an intersection which hit the spot. We then took a bit of extra time packing our bags as this would be the last time we needed them until final preparation for check-in to Brisbane. We took a taxi to Mainz train station since the weather was a bit ominous. While waiting for the next train to Frankfurt we noticed the number of police dressed in full riot gear was...

Apr 22, 2014 - On to Frankfurt

This morning we spent talking to Nan and Graeme. After lunch Nan took us to Edinburgh Airport. Saying "Goodbye" is always painful, possibly more so for Nan than us, but this time we have the comfort of knowing we will meet again in August when she will visit us. We joined the line for the check in at Ryanair, a cut-price airline reputed to have more planes in Europe than any other airline. We dropped our bags without incident - always pays to read the fine print! We proceeded through security where my bag of computers, cameras, chargers,...

Weather here in Singapore in unseasonably cool of only about 24 to 26 degrees. We have been so lucky weather wise wherever we have been.
