Sandi and I





I am blogging all over the Map. I am so far behind I decided to start at the end, so we got up and decided that today would be a good day to go for the National Park thing as it is forecast to rain tomorrow. But first let us do our laundry and then head out. We left Trogir and it is approximately a three-hour drive to get there even using the high-speed toll road (The A-1). We dragged it out a little longer stopping at a road side stop (The Krka way station) with a restaurant and I went to help myself to a bowl of soup and other food but was summarily chastised by this young woman working there, as to not touch, she would serve me. So, she handed me this ... read more

Well here is going back and blogging what we did in Amsterdam now that we have had time to slow down and smell the Gardenias in Croatia. Boy we were late getting back to our hotel on the 25th and were we tired, we crashed hard, a lot of walking and serious jet lag. So today we crawled out of bed around 1030 Hrs and it was cool and windy outside. I worked on my blogging that I was already behind on and we never crawled out of the hotel until 1345 Hrs. We walked over to a big bus station right beside our hotel and thought we were catching the bus to Centraal Station, but it turned out to be heading down to the Museum district, which was alright anyways. We got off the bus ... read more

Dear Blog....LOL, It seems to be harder than I thought to keep this Blog up, as we seem to have no time or desire to sit in our hotel room typing versus out exploring or eating or finally back in our room sleeping. So It will likely be a little sporadic. I know how sporadic, as it is the 28th today that I am filling it in on. We had finished up at Keukenhoff and caught the bus back to the airport, where we switched over to the train to Centraal station. We stumbled out of there and worked our way into the core of Amsterdam where we explored one shop after another and ended up in a great cheese shop and finally after sampling all of the cheeses we walked out with an aged sheep ... read more

Hello Blog This is my third try at this one. My computer died twice on me and that is the only time this thing doesn't auto save. WE had made it into Amsterdam on the evening of the 24th and then to our hotel the IBIS Amsterdam Airport which has turned out to be very functional, clean and spartan. At least we have a coffee station just down the hall where we can make an automatic Cappucino or Latte. Yesterday the 25th we headed back to the airport and then bought our two day transit passes before heading off to Keukenhof Gardens. Where we saw more bulb flowers than you could even think of; Muscari, Narcissus (daffodils), Hyacinths, Tulips, Amarylis and Frittilaria. I will include a few pictures to show some of them. The neatest thing ... read more

Hello Blog, I have to get used to blogging on a regular basis and I already learned the hard way about not saving when I exit from this blog platform. We hit the airport in Calgary on Monday the 23rd at 1905 Hrs and the international end of the airport was dead. We flew with British Airways from YYC to Heathrow LHR and our flight was not until 2200 Hrs. We hit security and there was literally one other couple going in at the same time as us. So instead of this being a quick zip through, the security guy wanted to practice his skills and ripped my bags apart looking to test every one of his sensors. He just loved telling us that normally this was such a good thing as he would then take ... read more
