We love diving
We know you are not complaining but getting back into the work life is an adjustment and we understand. Glad you had time to go diving and wish we could have been on that trip. The sea lions would have been wonderful to see. Great photos. Excellent. Glad you'll be writing some local blogs. We love those as you are the expert in the area.

This is the first Travelblog I've read...
where the diver interacts with sea lions. Most of the other divers concentrate on tropical seas. You might inspire other divers to dance with sea lions. I'm looking forward to your future local blogs.

Galway
I think Galway has the missguided reputation as being popular for stag parties in Ireland. From my holiday there last year there were loads of families holidaying there and there is so much to see and do in the surrounding areas. Roundstone, Connemara, the Gaeltacht Irish speaking areas and Spiddal are also worth visiting.

Thank you for thank you
It was a pleasure to see you in London again Daniel - and I am only sorry it was so short. Next time I hope you might be able to visit my former home in Cornwall too. Best wishes (on the day of the Army v Royal Navy rugger match!!)

Mont St Michel

Thanks for the comment!
Hi Tara, thanks for your words. Indeed my stay in France was great and big part of that was that I stayed most of those 7 weeks with different French families. I saw that you recently wrote about a trip to the South of Chile you did a few years back, it was a fun read. Cheers!
1st May 2014

I have enjoyed following your travels over the last two years...
and look forward to reading your future blogs about Chile. We just arrived in Lima, Peru; our first time in South America. I will be blogging about our trip...only two weeks, not two years!

Mont St Michel

Great adventures!
How wonderful that you're staying with French people and getting to know the culture! Mont St Michel is one of my fave places. I spent the night and had a dream of doing the Camino de Santiago de Compostella/Chemin de San Jacques, which I later did. If you end up having a bit of time, it's a fantastic journey, but it also sounds as if you're having fabulous experiences. !Buen viaje!

Hola Daniel, Que buena pasada por París. Con Monica estuvimos por 5 días hace 2 años y fue espectacular. Me acuerdo de unas ostras y creps que comimos en los restaurantes de montmatre que tu muestras acá. Por acá todo bien. El fin de semana fuimos por 2 dias a Rapel que siempre es tan agradable y con Sofi hicimos nuestra primera navegación en 470 de la temporada. Los niños bien. Sofi termina esta semana sus clases y sigue solo con su preparacion para la PSU. Las parras en esta época crecen mucho y requieren de un buen cuidado cosa que hemos hecho en forma aplicada. Esta es la mejor temporada de venta del año así es que estamos con todas las pilas puestas para tener un excelente fin de año. un abrazo y nos vemos pronto, Andres

6 degrees of separation
The world is a small place. Absolutely loved reading this blog. France is such a food fest! and a place to catch up with old friends.

No tenemos mas novedades. un abrazo y ya queda casi un mes para que vuelvas. Como pasa el tiempo!! un fuerte abrazo y que siga todo viento en popa, Andrés

P.S. I'm waiting to read...
about the rest of your trip around Europe. My first backpacking trip alone around Europe was Eurailpassing in 1968 after graduating from high school. I eventually lived there from 1977 to 1995...all blogged...perhaps this will inspire you to finish your trip blogs!

Thanks for the comments
I took a look at Malcolm Gladwell's book after you mentioned it, seems like an interesting read. I'll start checking out your blog as well, looks like you're well traveled and connected! About the rest of my trip in Europe, I'm taking my time to write it (the current trip is taking more than enough time already). I'll probably finish it after I get back home from this trip. I recently received information that'll help me write the one about X-Mas in Edinburgh which was my next stop. All the best and enjoy your upcoming travels, Daniel

Six degrees of separation...
the more you travel the more common such coincidences become. I spent 11 years working at NATO in Brussels so had colleagues/friends from all over Europe. After I returned to the States, one day years later I was browsing for travel books and I heard a Norwegian couple in the next aisle over. I, of course, had to introduce myself being of Norwegian ancestry. They asked I had visited Norway and had any relatives or friends there. I told them I had visited Norway many times and dear friends named Erling and Vigdis. They said they had picked up Erling and Vigdis earlier that day, and he would be the Norwegian Defense Representative to the US for the next three years. I called Erling at the Embassy about 10 minutes into his new job...he was very surprised to hear my voice and asked if I worked for the CIA...I didn't...just one of those 6 degree of separation moments. He ended up spending five years in DC and attended my retirement ceremony. This is just one of many stories I could tell. Anyway, it sounds like you are a networker as described in Malcolm Gladwell's book "Tipping Point." It's good to meet a fellow networker.

I just started Following all these years later...
so am starting with your first blog of your trip to Europe. I like that you have gone back in time to add previous trips, and will continue to update this blog as you remember anecdotes of your time there.

Hola dani, Se echaba de menos tus posts. Me alegro que Sudafrica haya sido tan bueno. Ya te queda muy poco para llegar asi es que me imagino que le estás sacando el jugo a las ultimas semanas. Por caá todo muy bien. La semana pasada fuimos con Trinidad a ver un concierto de Violetta que es su idola musical. Era su primer concierto y lo pasamos muy muy bien. Al dia siguiente tuvimos el encuentro familiar de los Schwarzenberg. Fuimos 75! y lo pasamos excelente. Un bálsamo para el espíritu. Este fin de semana nos fuimos a Rapel a cambiar un poco de aire. Sofia termina esta semana sus clases y ya le queda lo ultimo para prepararse para su PSU que la da el 2 de diciembre. Todos muy bien y sin novedad. un abrazo Andres

Hola Dani, que bueno que sigas disfrutando de tu viaje. Me imagino que ya estarás cerca de Irlanda que entiendo es tu nuevo destino. Por acá todos bien. el 18 estuvo muy bueno. Vinieron mamo y papo donde margarita y celebramos con un buen asado. Después nos fuimos a Rapel por un par de días donde siempre disfrutamos mucho. Te mandamos un fuerte abrazo Andres

Those cagey Great Whites
Sorry the shark experience was disappointing but can see why you felt that way. Why is it the guys who snore never have to sleep on the couch.
