Who Knew?

I was walking down on a street in Luton, a suburb of London when I saw this restaurant. It seemed somewhat out of place. Luton is a multi-ethnic community, with a variety of restaurants featuring cuisines from around the world. It would make sense that there would be kebabs, whihc are immensely popular the  Middle […]

Making America Great Again

I meant to share this picture on July 4, American independence day, but I forgot. Now seems as good a time as any. For those who agree with the sentiment, I understand your frustration.

It has been stinking hot in southern Germany the past few days, which means I’ve been moving somewhat in slow motion. Things get done, but they seem to take longer. We have guests visiting from Canada, and we are trying to allow them to experience this area in a way tourists rarely get, to see […]

York – 306 A.D.

Originally posted September 26, 2014. York was not on the original summer itinerary. The plan was to go to England’s Lakes District and do some hiking.
