Europe » Italy » Trentino Alto Adige » Trento September 2nd 2012

We woke up; well Kirsten woke up and then woke me up. Let’s go the day is wasting, yea, yea I know you have the GO GO. I’ll see you at breakfast; Bea is already down there. I got up and did a 1-minute shower, in a shower that is 18 inches by 18 inches. I’m not kidding. I then joined Kirsten and Bea down stairs for breakfast. Ok, they watched me eat my breakfast as they planned their day. We loaded up the car and started going toward Verona As we were going south Kirsten saw the winery were we stayed 3 years earlier. She pulls in and says let’s see if their open. They were and we tasted some of their grappa, it was very good so we purchased a couple bottles for Kirsten ... read more

Europe » Italy » Trentino Alto Adige » Bolzano September 1st 2012

It’s 7 AM and I rollover and Kirsten is starring at me; WOOO; I jump, are you awake, I am now. It’s still raining and Bea is coming out of the bathroom ready to go. Let’s get going the day is wasting, we’re all cleaned and dressed within 30 mins and heading down for breakfast. We sit at our assigned table and we have a nice breakfast. We load up our suit cases and were off before 9 AM. Hey I thought we are on vacation, Ok, Ok, I’ll take it easier tomorrow, however today were making up time. I guess Kirsten slept real good, she’s sitting in the car tooting the horn as I’m running across the parking lot. As were leaving Borimo, lots of cyclists are coming up the road heading toward the pass ... read more

Europe » Switzerland » North-East » Zürich August 31st 2012

It’s 5 AM and Maria has fixed me a famous German breakfast. She got up earlier and got me up knowing I needed to be on the road by 6 AM. It was a great night sleep, its cool here and I slept with the windows open. It was great. I finished breakfast; Maria gave me all my instructions along with a picnic lunch for us all, just like momma and Oma. I loaded all my stuff into the car and pointed it toward Zurich. I’m following the same route I came, how hard can this be? Well it was, it pouring down raining and it’s dark. Long story short, I missed my turn and had to get my maps out and find another route. It helps to have a navigator. Finally, I’m heading in the ... read more

Europe » Germany » Bavaria » Lindau August 30th 2012

Well I’m sitting in seat 4A, yep all the analysis paid off. The flight was full but I was at the head of the list using my new buddy passes. We pulled away from our gate and started taxiing toward the runway, the plane promptly stopped. After about 10 minutes the pilot came on the intercom and announce we’re waiting because an Air Bus A380 broke down on the runway and we have to wait because it’s so large and it’s being towed back to the terminal. LOL We’re finally airborne, the flight attendant Iris and her team were very nice and it was a smooth flight. About 1 hour in to the flight the pilot came on the intercom and was explaining all the flight stuff where we’re going, how high, bla, bla. But then ... read more

North America » United States » New York » New York August 29th 2012

Sitting in JFK Well it’s not E Concourse in Atlanta, but it’s an interesting difference. Hello everyone, yes it’s me. I’m sure you’ve been wondering is Steve & Kirsten ever going to travel again. Where are those BLOGS? Yes, we have been traveling but mostly we’ve been taking cruises and Kirsten wouldn’t pay for Internet on the cruise ships, it was slow as 300 baud. Man I’m dating myself. On that note this trip is dedicated to someone’s birthday, Kirsten instructed me to plan a trip to Italy a few months ago. I excitedly accepted and started planning; well about half way into planning she changed the scope of the trip to include a third person. Hmmmm, you guessed it, Kirsten gave Bea a trip and she chose Italy. That’s Ok; I know how to handle ... read more

Europe » Germany » Baden-Württemberg » Lichtenstein July 14th 2011

I wake up and look out the window, it’s not raining. Can you believe it, it’s not raining. The sun is coming up and it looks to be a clear day. About that time Kirsten come out of the bathroom and says; Where we going today? Well last night while someone was passed out I sat there reading my Famous German Tours and found that in Lichtenstein. Wait a minute are you telling me we’re going to Lichtenstein? Yep, the town; not the country. We have to back track but if we take the route I’ve outlined we’ll be there in about 45 minutes. It should be a pretty easy ride now that it’s not raining. We pack up and headed down stairs, our inn keeper was waiting and points us to our table. He starts ... read more

Europe » Germany » Baden-Württemberg » Baden-Baden July 13th 2011

We get up and have breakfast at the Zimmer where we stayed. Oma and Opa are ready and the flight looks great. We took them to the airport and dropped them off at Delta’s terminal. We told them that we’re going to Tubingen. This is a village southeast of Stuttgart about 30 Km away. It has a great historical Zentrum ‘Center of Town’. It has lots of half-timber houses, the Rat House ‘Town Hall’ and a great Cathedral. Inside the cathedral are beautifully decorated tombs. We told Oma that in about an hour we’d check the flight and if they didn’t get on we’d be back to pick them up. Everyone agreed and we were off. When we arrived in Tubingen Kirsten parked and we began walking toward the center. We came around the corner of ... read more

Europe » Germany » Baden-Württemberg » Stuttgart July 12th 2011

It’s Tuesday morning, Kirsten has already gone down for breakfast. I’m behind her in the next few minutes. I have my suitcase and leave it by the front door. I’m looking around to see where Kirsten, Oma and Opa are, I can’t find them. I’m opening each door and theirs no one there. Finally I open this door and there they are, everyone’s looking at me as where you been. Are you hiding or what? Kirsten laughs; they closed the door Es Zieht ‘a draft’. One thing Germans can’t handle is a draft, any draft. We finish breakfast load up the car and we’re on our way heading west nowhere in particular just meandering. After a while we come into this small village and there is a McDonalds. McDonalds are good in Germany and Austria they ... read more

Europe » Austria » Salzburg » Zell am See July 11th 2011

What! Its 7 AM, I know we need to get on the road. What! As I turn over I feel this foot up against my back. Get Up! Ok are we on vacation or not? We need to get up and load the car and get on the road. You want to see the Ice cave and ride on the Alpine Stratsse RIGHT? Ya Ya Ya. Kirsten and I walk to the bakery and she’s talking and talking, I’m just missing my nice bed. We get there and the lady is smiling and Kirsten is just as happy as can be. I’m looking at both of them thinking WHAT THE &#*@! We order our rolls and we‘re on our way back and Kirsten says you don’t have to be so grumpy. WHAT! I’ve been kicked out ... read more

Europe » Germany » Bavaria » Berchtesgaden July 10th 2011

Yea you read it correctly our last day. Everyone wants to stay, Kirsten is saying sell the houses’ let’s buy a Zimmer. I’ll run it over here. You remember we had this issue when we were in Northern Italy a while back. Did you forget Will, Mark and Caroline still live in Winter Haven; Oh yea, I guess it would be hard to commute back and forth. YEA! HELLO! Gee’s why do I have to be the bad guy. Now that everyone is back down to reality Oma says today is Fest day at Berchtesgaden. Kirsten is out the door and halfway down the stairs. A few hundred years earlier the people of Berchtesgaden had this club or organization that shot guns. Ok, I don’t understand but basically it a Fest ’Festival' to celebrate these folks ... read more
