Earlier this year I wanted to plan a trip to Chicago for Paul to see the Cubs play, but it was hard to find tickets and so expensive. My brother suggested we check Cubs games at Camden Yards in Baltimore, and turns out, there was a series this week! Also, my brother lives here in Baltimore which makes it all the nicer! That's when plans took off. I had to do a lot of sneaking and clearing browser history so he didn't see what I'd been doing online! I gave him the surprise on his 40th birthday - he knew I was up to something but nothing like this. Stay tuned for updates of our travels! Funny happening in the Minneapolis airport- I got through security fine and was waiting for Paul and I heard him ... read more

For several decades in a Baltimore cemetery, someone has been dressing up, walking over to Edgar Allan Poe's grave, drinking a glass of cognac and leaving the rest of the bottle and flowers for the poet Edgar Allan Poe. Happy Birthday Poe, long dead but still getting cognac every year. Post-life goals! The 'toaster' has never been identified. His last appearance was in 2010 has left space for 'faux toasters' who have carried on the tradition. Some people complain that they have not carried on the original toasters secretive nature and will walk through crowds of people and not leave the flowers in what has been described as a 'distinctive' pattern. I've never been a huge fan of poetry (except for one of my friends who writes hilarious dirty haikus), and have honestly never read any ... read more

Buffalo, NY to Warwick, RI A somber reminder of the date as we rode out of Buffalo, NY this morning; all flags were flying at half mast. I felt it also symbolised the strength and resilience of the people of the US. We were headed for Springfield, Massachusetts and took in a couple of Starbucks stops to break up the trip. On our first stop we met Craig who is riding a Triumph Tiger. We had a quick chat but as we had finished our coffee stop we carried on. When we stopped at our next stop Craig arrived and asked where we were headed (Twisted Throttle in Rhode Island) to which he most generously offered to accommodate us all at his home, which just happens to be in Rhode Island! We quickly accepted before he ... read more

Bonjour à tous, Il me semble que depuis New-York c'est la première fois que je n'ouvre pas le toit de la journée, enfin d'après midi le soleil est revenu, avec 27°, mais comme j'étais dans le centre Baltimore, il est resté fermé. J'avais mis au programme de passer par Alexandria, qui est à 25 km de Washington, et qui d'après les guides peut être considérée comme la plus jolie ville des États-Unis. Jolie ville, oui mais sans plus. Si la King Street était piétonnière, elle pourrait faire concurrence à Charlottesville, qui elle pourrait méritée ce titre. Je vais voir, le monument le plus imposant de la ville, au sommet de sa colline le "Georges Washington Masonic Mémorial" c'est assez imposant comme bâtisse, pas très beau à mon goût, son seul intérêt est de dominer la ville. ... read more

North America » United States » Maryland » Baltimore July 12th 2015 a break from driving and going and doing. We decided to just take an extra day and relax. We'll start our day and a half trek to Massachusetts tomorrow. It also gave me a day to get caught up on the blog. Thank you all, by the way, for reading it and for your comments. I thought I'd take you on a tour of our home away from home. It's a one bed, one bath 29-foot 5th wheel. We've had it since last August and have taken it on a handful of weekend outings. So far, it's been everything we were wanting. Enjoy the nickel tour.... read more

…laundry day!! Yay…clean clothes! Always a good day when we have clean clothes. More importantly, we needed them because we went to the Orioles game. Actually, we didn’t really care about the game, we went to see the park. Oriole Park at Camden Yards is a really nice baseball park. I hadn’t realized the alley between right field and the B & O Warehouse was incorporated into the new ballpark grounds. There are souvenir shops, cafes and pubs outside of which you can sit, relax and enjoy the sounds of the game. We walked around the park, taking it all in before we grabbed dinner at Boog’s BBQ. The food was pretty good, but I thought it was a little dry without the barbecue sauce. There were several to choose from at the condiment bar. The ... read more

…in Washington, D.C. What a long, tiring day! We drove to a park and ride about 20 minutes away to take the light rail train into Baltimore. Warning: you must be smarter than the machine to purchase tickets. It took us three or four tries and two machines to realize the credit card was facing the wrong direction. We hopped aboard and grabbed a couple seats. They were facing backward. Oh well, we’ll be able to see where we’ve been. The last stop before that particular train went to the airport was not where we needed to be to catch a train to D.C. Using the handy-dandy driving app on my phone, we walked the mile or so to Baltimore’s Penn Station. Once there, getting tickets was easy now that we knew how. We had our ... read more
