  • Hopefully that get-together can be arranged.  Getting to that list thing, any list of objectives is, of course, OK - the qualitative distinction being only based here on who made that list and why.  BTW, we are probably postponing our check on the property until a week from today (the 9th).  We move for good on the 23rd. I'll be in touch again r...

  • Zuf it's okay to have a wish list.  I think that's different from a bucket-list that people put too much emphasis on achieving lest they die unhappy and unfulfilled!  Personally, I'm pretty content with my life and if I get to see England it'll be a bonus.  I'd like to spend a couple weeks in France too, but heck, I'd really like to have a get-t...

  • We drove through Massa on our way up to Asti.  We also saw several weddings (one in Sienna, one in Asti) and my wife was taking more photos than the bride's hired photographer!  I must admit, a wedding in Italy would be tough to beat on the romance scale!  I think if I return to Europe, England would be my next choice.  The World Cycling Champio...

  • Looks like you had a good time I was in Italy back in June for my nephew's wedding to an Italian girl but I was only there for a weekend and did not see as much as you. She lives,or rather her family lives in the town of Massa on the Tuscan coast north of Pisa Read More

  • Yes Greg, I did think of that too.  I guess just knowing how much had happened in those places and how old some of them are.  To know you're in a building that's verging on a thousand years old and is still beautiful.  Now, for you I'd definitely make an exception for travel!  We'll figure something out.Zuf is moving over to Victoria soon, so he...

  • "I do have a profound sense of reverence and respect for history and the struggles of the church and state through the years.  I didn't say anything to the people I was traveling with, but there were times when the magnitude of place had me on the verge of tears.  Times now are different, but you cannot help but feel overwhelmed at times in the ...

  • And believe it or not, there is wine in south England - the Kentish Downs in particular, but elsewhere as well, with vineyards popping up in unlikely places in the same way as experienced in New England, the US Midwest, Ontario and British Columbia.  Try some bubbly if you ever get there... French Champagne houses are pouring money into certain ... Read More

  • Your attitude seems most practical.  Travel, like any other activity, should serve a purpose... your purpose, and no one else’s.  Ignore all third-party bucket lists and you’ll be much more content.  Modern travel is big business and it is not having a neutral impact on the world, to put things rather mildly; on many dimensions it is having a re...

  • I've told several people since I've returned that I have no interest in traveling again for some time.  I had a great time and there may be a few places I'd like to experience before I cannot travel comfortably, but in my heart I feel that travel is worse for the world than cherishing the place we belong.  I'm not disparaging those who love trav...

  • A fully-packed fortnight, I should say.  I am really glad you took the time to go; travel is good, and a few of us are passionate, natural Wandervoegeln, but the modern obsession with travel seems more driven by moneyed interests than a healthy curiosity about the world.However, in our talks, you really deserved a good trip outside the country. ...
