May 30, 2013 - Milwaukee

The sun is shining again despite the rain forecast! Neither Bob or I knew much about Milwaukee other than it is the largest city in Wisconsin, a place to see a lot of German influence, eat brats and drink beer! Peg’s tour certainly gave us an entirely new perspective. One of the highlights of the tour was the Milwaukee Public Market in the historic Third Ward, formerly a warehouse district that has been revitalized through the efforts of the Third Ward Association of which Ron Felippo has taken a leading role. The area is now home not only...

May 30, 2013 - Egg Harbor to Milwaukee, WI

On the way to dinner we stopped at the Main Street Market in Egg Harbor. There were lots of specialty items, “high end food” products and meats very similar to the Sonoma Market. Bob was very impressed with the wine selection and bought a bottle of the Treanna Viognier that we like so much. We had a nice meal at Galileo’s last night. The restaurant was nearly empty but our waiter, Brian, was good. Camp had given us tickets for two free glasses of wine which we wanted to apply to a bottle of wine. The intent was for us to have some of the...

May 13, 2013 - Evansville, IN to Milwaukee, WI

Day 10 part deux: Destination: Milwaukee, WI I do not like Chicago traffic or Chicago tolls, but I do like the Chicago skyline. We didn't even stop for lunch... So, that's all I've got today. Until next time folks. Tomorrow: Work... Ugh

Oct 24, 2012 - Des Moines, IA to Milwaukee, WI

Day fifty four: Destination - Milwaukee Soundtrack - Jason Mraz, Lady GaGa, No Doubt, America, Blink 182, Cake, Harvey Danger, and Sublime We left Des Moines after breakfast - started our drive around 10 A.M. At this point, I'm not even going to apologize for being boring. All we did was drive. It was surprisingly warm and quite foggy. I cannot wait to make dinner in a real kitchen, watch TV in my livingroom, shower for as long as I want, and sleep in my heated house! This was one of the coolest things I've done in my life - granted it's...

Sep 5, 2012 - June--Milwaukee area

This is our anniversary month! Two years on the road. Time has flown, and at this point we are doing well and not looking for an exit plan! Some RV’ers go into it, with an idea in mind when they are going to “quit” and have a stick home again. But so far we still have places to go and things to do, and are not anxious for it to end. We tell each other, maybe another 5-10 years?? We’ll see! Memorial Day weekend is always the mid-point between Lydia and Lauren’s birthday’s so it is party time! It’s hard to believe that Lauren is six and Lydia...

Aug 31, 2012 - Milwaukee, WI

Pumbaa, Nick, and I are ready to hit the road! I would like to preface this blog with the fact that I'm not a very good writer. I made this blog for two reasons: 1) To make sure our family didn't worry about us if we weren't in contact 2) So we could remember the little things that happened I realize that I did put this on the internet for anyone to stumble upon, and I love that others can read about our experience. Hopefully the pictures are enough to keep your interest when my writing bores you... Hakuna Matata...

Aug 5, 2012 - Betsy's Birthday

Happy Birthday Bets. We are not really in Milwaukee but German Town. We are parked in Betsy's older brother Fred's driveway. He was at our place last summer. Time for a little pay back. All their kids and grand/great grands came over and we had a big cookout. Betsy had never seen any of her grand nieces and nephews. Great time with loads of food and even home made ice cream. Monday we loaded up and took a two car ride to see a place called " House on the Rock." A fascinating place that confirmed the thin line between genius and insanity....

Jul 26, 2012 - Three days!

I can't believe there are only three days left until I arrive in Lima! The past few days have been crazy--packing, errands, appointments, etc. I'm alllllmost done packing, I just have to squeeze everything into my suitcase and weigh it, and knowing me I'll probably have to take half of it out. Packing for five weeks is harder than I thought; this is the longest trip I've ever had to prepare for. I spent a good hour today perusing my Spanish dictionary and brushing up on vocab, but I'm feeling pretty good about my Spanish. I can't wait to...

Jun 27, 2012 - Milwaukee Bound

This trip was short. I have been to Milwaukee before so the main reason I visited again was to see my friend Ope who is doing his Medical Residency there. I had a great 3 days. I saw several parks, attended the 45th annual SummerFest (the largest music festival in the world), Went to the Harley-Davidson museum, got a patriotic mani-pedi, spent some time looking out over Lake Michigan, indulged in some fantastic food and of course local beer and last but not least battled some record breaking high temperatures.

Jun 26, 2012 - Milwaukee Art Museum

Last year as I drove through Wisconsin I did not have time to stop in Milwaukee - something I always regretted . With good driving conditions Milwaukee is an hour and forty minutes from here. I wanted most especially to visit the Milwaukee Art Museum, see Miller Field, and tour the Pabst Mansion. I arrived at the museum just before noon, watched the Burke Brise Soleil open, had lunch, saw the Toulouse Lautrec and contemporaries Posters of Paris exhibit ,and visited the permanent collection. Another trip will be necessary to see the rest of...

Mar 16, 2012 - Milwaukee Improv Show!

I got to Milwaukee a little late. I quickly realized that driving in Milwaukee sucks... There's a million confusing, one-way roads and bike lanes and no parking lots for me to stop and check my GPS. It turns out that my couchsurfing hosts' fiancé was in an improv show so I met them at Comedy Sportz just in time for his show. It was a political improv show called Talking Points and it was surprisingly good.

Oct 10, 2011 - Awaiting to Leave

Hey I'm packing for my trip to Greece I'm so excited I'm bursting. I researched to find out what clothes I should bring on my trip and I found out that a sarong-style scarf is good for going with everything. Here's a list of what I'm bringing: 1 pair light-colored (but preferably not blue) cotton slacks, jeans, or other medium or heavyweight pants, 1 pair dark pants, 1 pair shorts, 1 windbreaker or other light jacket, 1 pair sandals, 1 pair good walking shoes, 1 pair "nice" shoes*, 1 sweater, 1 short-sleeve blouse*, 1 long-sleeve blouse, 1...
