Amsterdam
Thanks, Pat, for your comment! We were in Schiphol Airport once before, many years ago, for an eight hour layover to Egypt. We decided to take advantage of a bus/boat tour of downtown. It was quite cool and when we were back this time, we were reminiscing of that tour! Thanks for reading!

What an interesting way to look at when you should visit a place. Picking your era would give a whole different perspective to your trip. Without consciously planning it, I guess I did that to an extent when I visited Saigon, where I was intent on following the trail of "The Quiet American" by Graham Greene

Seasons...
Thank you. It's probably a way most people become interested in a destination, even if they don't realize it. We were thinking of the "Quiet American" when we were sitting in the Hotel Continental in Saigon having breakfast. We even stayed in a room used by Michael Caine when he was in Hoi An filming the movie! Thanks for reading!

Thanks!
You can find this is the Jumbo Rocks camping area if you look. I don't remember the number of the campsite that it is near. You might be able to find it on the internet. It makes a good picture.

Curing dread
Really felt for you in the fishing boat experiencing apprehension resulting in a feeling of dread. Do you go with the flow and take what comes or seek to control your experience to minimise monetary risk? Sometimes the best adventures are letting the breeze take you where it will. Sometimes you win, I find you rarely lose.But when you lose...'tis said how you take it is the measure of the man or woman. I reckon you guys are so experienced you can handle anything that comes. If so, I reckon there is no place for dread...only excitement of where the breeze will next lead you or be led. May the swartz be with you!

Win Some, Lose Some....
I think the dread has gotten worse with age. No longer able to fight or flee. Our budget tends to be a little close to the bone which doesn't allow for as many errors as in travels past. We try not to let it get the best of us most days. Countries that are a little more aggressive (India, Morocco, Egypt etc.) tend to cause more problems. Thanks for the wise advice as always, Dave.

One of our favorites
We love Morocco. Thanks for the memories. I love to barter and I'm a master. I did very well in Morocco. They told me I bargain like a Berber. Your taxi experience sounds fun. Life on the road is full of excitement. I hope you saw Jemma el Fna square is an interesting place at night. A unique carnival as you say.

Favorites...
I hope it turns out to be one of ours. We read your blogs of Morocco before we came. It sounded like you had fun. We got sunglasses that started at 40 dollars for 6 dollars. But we bought the same ones for 4 dollars in Thailand, so I think they do alright even when you bargain well. Thanks for commenting and reading!

Hassan II Mosque

Morocco - thanks for bringing back memories
Your blog brings back memories from when we went to Morocco a couple of years ago. Our trip began badly and we thought for a while that it was jinxed in some way. But as soon as we left the airport things changed and we had a wonderful time. /Ake

Hassan II Mosque

Wonderful...
I'm sure in the end we will have a good trip. Morocco is very interesting and has a lot of things to interest any traveler. Wish us luck! Thanks for the support and nice comments, Ake!

Loved this blog...
...and the title! It's indeed a fine line between being alert and aware, but not crossing over into paranoid-land. Hope the rest of your trip goes well :)

Paranoid....
I guess the answer is just keep a good hold on your stuff and barge in. We spent an enjoyable day lost in the market yesterday and it wasn't too bad. Thanks for reading and the nice compliments. We definitely need the encouragement!

Amazing photographs...and the stories to go with them!
The quality of your photos still continues to blow me away. I want to gaze at a mosque, go out in a fishing boat, have tea with you and Nanci in a medina. Thanks so much for sharing with us arm-chair travelers! And continue the battle to let go of the dread! xoxo Jane

Thanks for Commenting
Thanks for your nice comments. We're only halfway through Morocco, and it doesn't look like it's going to get any easier. Thanks again for your comment! Nanci and David

Old Town-Kotor

Balconies of Kotor
When we walked around in central Kotor we where surprised over the many balconies there. We ended up making a blog entry with only photos of various balconies. I thought it came out pretty good... / Ake

Balconies...
Hey, Ake. I had to look back and find your "Balconies of Kotor" blog. I did see some nice ones, especially on some of the older buildings. We had a nice, quiet time in Kotor. Thanks for reading and commenting. We appreciate it!

Kotor Sunset

Montenegro
We want to quit our jobs again and travel to the places you have been in the past few months. Those childhood memories are wonderful and those atlases planted the travel seeds. I have so many visions in my heads about good times sitting in the den at home looking at the National Geographic shiny photos and staring in wonder. We love that time just before sunset when the light dances. Patience is a virtue and your photos show your attention to the art. Happy 2017.

Kotor Sunset

Montenegro....
Ah, the shiny pages of National Geographic and Old Atlases. Such was the childhood before video games and 500 channels of cable television. Yes, please leave those jobs and come out to play! We'll save a sunset for you! Happy 2017 to you also. I can't wait to see where it takes us.....
