Barcelona Views

I don’t think we have spent so much time looking over a city as we did in Barcelona. There were so many places that offered fantastic rooftop views. It was really neat to get up high after spending so many hours in the narrow streets below.  Here are a few up-top views, compliments of Mr. […]

Strolling through Brussels, Belgium

Our first stop on our trip last week was in Bruxelles or Brussels, Belgium. One of Mr. DJ’s colleagues said that “Brussels reveals her charms slowly.” Hmmm. I don’t know. I thought the old girl was pretty charming from the get go. Although my opinion might have been swayed by where we stayed…. The Conrad. […]

Documentation Centre and Nazi Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg, Germany

Our trip to Germany included some stops that I must admit wouldn’t have been on my list of things to see had it not been for Mr. DJ’s interest in the First and Second World Wars. If it were up to me, we’d be in museums and cafés. If it were left up to Roxi, […]

I went to London for a bit of New York Dada

Yesterday, I went to London’s Tate Modern museum to see the special exhibit Duchamp Man Ray Picabia. I liked viewing their work together–it made it easy to see how they influenced each other. I won’t go into any of detail, but you can read a review of the show here if you like. Also, if […]

We went for a walk on Saturday

One of the things we have learned in our time here is that if we are blessed with a sunny day, we must take advantage of it no matter what! Saturday was a beautiful, mild Spring day. After being cooped up for so long, a country walk was definitely in order. The only question was–where? […]

Prague: Church of St. Nicholas and a Beer Hall

Right, so I’m almost done with our October trip to Prague. Just one more post after this… The Church of St. Nicholas is located in Prague’s Little Quarter not far from our hotel. That’s it on the right. The green dome is the same one we saw in the second photo from my St. Vitus […]

And speaking of conservatories

One year while we were in Rochester, NY for a family gathering, my father suggested we visit the George Eastman House. George Eastman is, of course, the founder of Kodak. Anyway, when Eastman died in 1932, he left his home to the University of Rochester. The house was eventually turned into a museum. If you’re […]

Hampton Court Palace

Well, it turned out that Roxi had too much homework for us to take a short trip. This actually worked out well, because my crew got some good sleep this weekend. However, we did feel like we should do something, so we settled on an outing to Hampton Court Palace on Saturday. Some of the […]

Prague: Beautiful but watch your back and wear your money belt!

St. John of Nepomuk on the Charles Bridge, Prague. It is said that if you rub the plaque beneath the statue, you’ll get a wish. One wish per person, per lifetime, please. I’ve been letting our Prague vacation simmer in my brain for a while hoping I would get some inspiration on what to tell […]

Hiking in the French Alps–Le Petit Balcon Sud Trail

I still have three more France posts to write. I’m hoping to be done by next week before we go away again. So, to take you back: this is is the Chamonix portion of our trip to France in August. If you missed the other posts, you can read about our crossing from England to […]
