Starting point Nathan D. Bryant Hello family, friends, collogues and others who are interested in my travels. I thought I would make this first entry to provide some background info. For the past 4 years I have taught social studies in Denver Colorado, or since I have graduated college. Much before this time though, I have had a dream of traveling and seeing the world. However, I did not want to simply travel to a place, see the usual tourist spots, then go back home. What I have wanted was a chance to be involved with the culture, come to understand how different parts of the world work and be able to really enjoy what the world has to offer. Very recently, I have just accepted an offer to teach history overseas, in Dubai UAE. Some ... read more

Fore! North America » United States » Colorado » Denver By Glamazon June 10th 2007 Paris BoundAnother beautiful day in the Mile-City! This morning, Gary and I - along with his brother, Randy, and mom, Carol - hit the course at The Homestead about three or four miles from our house. It doesn't really get much better than this and, honestly, the pictures don't do the real thing justice. Gary surprised me with a new golf bag at the course - it's pink and sassy! xoxo S... read more

Well, we got stuck at the airport due to delays and had to change our flights around. We'll still make it to Barcelona tomorrow. It did give us time to start our travel blog though, we hope you all enjoy it.... read more

Motorhome News from North America 44 17th May - 30th May 2007 A nomadic swan-song. The magic of Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons There’s a new way of life just around the corner; a life of cars and motels, turning onto the tourist track on the western fringe of Wyoming and the borders of Montana, Idaho, Utah and back into Colorado for the last two weeks of our tour of North America before flying out from Denver on the 30th May. We’ll miss the Winnebago: the stops for coffee and lunch at the nod of a hat, home cooking, knowing where to find a clean pair of socks, the diary, a map of Utah, the telescope (deep in the suitcase when you most need it); a bottle-opener when it’s absolutely essential - and the toilet, ... read more

Ok, so this is going to be slightly boring, as I haven't actually gone anywhere yet. I may post some pics to keep everyone occupied until the real fun starts. I'm just setting this up so I can cross another thing off my list. For those friends that I haven't spoken with for awhile, I know that I'm awful at livejournal and I expect to be a bit better about this. At least when I'm going someplace interesting. Here's my itinerary just in case someone is going to be in the area while I'm there and I don't know about it and we should meet up: June 3 - fly to Canada (spend time with friends and family in Toronto area mostly, for those of you near Brockville I'll be there in August!) June 14-17 - ... read more

Howdy! I took a few days off following the Memorial Day weekend to get my chill on - ahhh! I had great ambitions about getting some writing and French lessons in, but... All's not lost though as I've done a good bit of reading; Candide, The Beauties and the Furies, and some short stories by Jean Rhys (whom I'm enjoying quite a bit). Gary and I spent a couple of hours toodling around downtown. I pretended I was a tourist and took lots of pictures (this is a travel blog - right?). If you want to see all the pix we took today in the city, click on the GALLERY icon on my homepage (the page with the countdown timer on it). Double click on the image under DENVER to open up the album (there ... read more

This blog is dedicated to those who helped us load and unload all of our earthly treasures this past week. We really appreciated it! Well, we have arrived safely in Colorado for six weeks of fun. It is surreal to load everything you own into a truck, drive it halfway across the nation, and call that new place “home”. I don’t think we would do so well as nomads. Prior to loading we spent about three weeks saying goodbye. We had a fair amount of going away parties and dinner engagements, as well as several last conversations. On the one hand it was really difficult. We cried pools of tears and had to drink lots of water to make up for it. On the other hand it was awesome to realize how many people love ... read more

It finally looks like the skies are ready to part a bit and let the sun shine after two days of blahhhh. I took Baylie for a walk this morning and saw the hugest coyote I've ever seen. He was as big as a golden retriever - yikes! He stared at me as he crossed the street and hiked up a neighbor's drive, "I'm just doing my own thing here, no need to panic. Although, that little dog of yours looks mighty tasty!" Thankfully Baylie's bangs keep him partially blind so he didn't even notice. That would have been a good time, I'm sure. I was reading about Sarkozy's swearing in yesterday. I'm not familiar with the political climate in France, but it seems that Chirac wasn't an entirely effective president (sluggish economy, 8.3% unemployment rate). ... read more

Yesterday was very nice and relaxing - a perfect way to spend Mother's Day! Gary gave me lots and lots of flowers - he even planted some in the front yard - and my kids gave me a t-shirt from Hooters. Fabulous! :) My dad came up from Palmer Lake on Saturday to take the kids to the flea market. I don't get the whole concept of flea markets, but for whatever reason, my kids love to go. Afterwards, they talked my dad into going to Hooters for lunch. While they were there, a woman apparently flew into the parking lot, threw open her car door, and began yelling at her ex-husband (who was sitting on the patio) for drinking away his child support; a nice touch, really, to an already disturbing scenario. I love ... read more
