Bruce Whisky & Tattoo Package

The invitation said to arrive at 17:00 hours. Actually they suggested that I arrive about 15 minutes early as there would be lots of activity then and it would be a busy event and that while their intention was to get everyone in they needed participants to be prompt. I’ve been to the old town…

Fire Breathing Fringe

Just imagine over 50,000 performances of more than 3200 shows all crammed into a 3 week time period. It actually seems like it might be a bit longer because some performances are playing right up until August 26th. And it’s not just street performances. There are big names and there are also unknown newbies performing…

The Shengen Boarders Agreement

If you are like me and enjoy traveling for extended periods of time, especially in and around The European countries then it is essential that you are aware of the Shengen Boarders Agreement. The original document was signed into existence on June 14, 1985. In it’s current form it includes travel rules/restrictions for 26 European…

My First Day in Edinburgh

I am off on another adventure. My friend Tonya virtually insisted that I come for a visit. In past times if I was out and about traveling she would often send me a message suggesting that as long as I was in the area I should come for a visit..makes sense, right? The flight from…

TSA & The Newest in Aviation Security

Just this past week TSA announced new screening procedures for carry-on luggage. Evidently there has been a heightened need for security after an issue with LapTops in the middle east. So to address this new possible threat passengers will be asked to remove all electronic items that are larger than a cell phone and place…

Learn At Least A Little Bit of The Language

I’ve been fortunate to have traveled to many distant places all over the world. And maybe you might think I’m a little odd but i always try to learn a little bit of the language before I go someplace new. I’ve often been told that “everyone speaks some english.”But that’s just not always true. On…

Send My Bag

I have friends all over the world. Some of them move from time to time a lot like Americans might move from Maine to Florida for the winter months. And a lot of them now either have families and/or collections of stuff that they’d rather not part with. So moving from one place to another…

Portland Head Light

Yesterday I happened to be out at Fort Williams Park where there is The Portland Head Light. I had intended to do a live video while I was standing there in front of one of the most visited and photographed lighthouses but alas Facebook sent me a message that I couldn’t do that because I…

Navigating Heathrow

Heathrow Airport is the largest airport in the United Kingdom in London and is a major hub for all sorts of international and domestic English travelers. It’s not abad airport really although when you first get off of an international flight and are herded off to a security screening it can be a little overwhelming…

Three Greek Drinks

In my short tenure as a world traveler i have traveled to all kinds of really cool places and seen all kinds of wonderful things as well as been able to taste the foods and enjoy the cultures. One of the things I never do when I am traveling is to eat anything that might…
