Cultures from opposite sides of the world meet in Bourton-On-The-Water

It is special moments like this that make travel truly enjoyable and memorable.  I posted this several years ago.  But it is worthwhile posting again in view of the fact that Untours is now offering trips to the British Isles."While driving through the Cotswolds in England in 1997, we came across two young Japanese girls in Burford who were at the Tourist Information Office trying to get a bus to Bourton-On-The-Water. There were no buses. Since we were planning to drive there in about an hour,…See More

"the Women on the 6th Floor"

There is a movie called "the Women on the 6th Floor." It is set in Paris. We had watched this film before. I had marked the film "excellent." It is a love story. We watched it again. My opinion hasn't changed. Now we long to return to Paris.http://www.rogerebert.com/r…/the-women-on-the-6th-floor-2011…See More

(23) Swiss Heartland Untour (Day 24) Zermatt, Day 2 (Gornergrat)

Swiss Heartland Untour - May 6 to June 4, 2014Thursday, May 29, 2014 We were both up at 5:00am. Eleanor took an Aleve after waking.  Her right knee cap was throbbing and sore, probably due to all the walking.  Entry into the shower required stepping up a foot or more, a dangerous move for Eleanor.  It would have been even more dangerous when stepping out of the wet floor of the shower.  So taking a shower was out of the question for her.  During my shower, I had to be very careful not to bump…See More

Bill,
The camera is a Canon XTi with a 100-400mm zoom lens. That's my "bird" lens.

Bill, with all this family history you should probably put a Prague/Budapest/Vienna Untour on your list. You now know who to talk to.
It was a great pleasure to meet you in person!

Hi Bill: Go to Edit Your Page Theme. You can experiment with the themes, and choose your own colors.

That's my Grandson, Bill. He graduates from boot
camp next Friday, July 27th, his 18th birthday is
July 28th, and on July 30th he will begin tech school
at both Lackland and Camp Bullis, for several
months. The Guard wants him to get a college
degree, so he will probably start in the Jan. 2008
semester. What is truly interesting about my
grandson, Jon, is that my son and his wife just
adopted him 1 1/2 years ago when he was 16! He
had been in foster homes since the age of 5, so this
is truly a mission of love for them. He is very smart, a real computer whiz.

My son, Jim, flies a challenger jet for FlexJet, a
time-share company, so he is gone a lot and my
daughter-in-law has almost the full load and
stress of suddenly raising a 16-year-old!
