There, a swarm of honey bees kept three youngsters on a horse farm in check. The bees had settled in the courtyard area on a door frame to the tack room, which the three teenagers the […]

Alan's Reading List

In the past I have enjoyed reading Spencer’s ‘Killers of the King’ about the execution of Charles 1 and the retribution dashed out later to those who had signed his death warrant.  Blenheim is an earlier book and not so lively but interesting nonetheless.  On reading it one comes away thinking that its central character […]

The English Garden is the biggest city park in the world (bigger than Central Park!). You can spot […]

365 Days in Europe

Our reservation at the Airbnb in my village ended this morning, so we had to checkout. Being in the car has gotten old for everyone, but we needed to move onto our next booking in Austria. Collin and Huck have been such troopers. It’s the adults that are starting to get a little squirrelly. The […]

Keeping Up With The Joneses

 Today was the day of the big ship switch!  I’m disappointed that I didn’t get a picture of all of the suitcases outside of our rooms, lined up for yards along the narrow hallway.  We were up early, wanting to eat breakfast before the bus ride to the city center of Nuremberg, and the cleaning […]

As much as I love Washington State, few places here have such a vibrant, fun-loving character as the city of Leavenworth. When we visited it over the weekend, I knew I had to talk about our experience here on the blog. So today I’m going to do just that – and, of course, since this […]

To Crete and back by bike

What a racket fieldfares make first thing in the morning! 6.30 start and a dip in a very cold but still lake. We chatted with a Spaniard called Roman who is doing a paragliding course locally and recently cycled from his home in Ausberg to Kurdistan. Then I completed a picture I started in Füssen […]

I really think Frankenmuth, MI, also known as Michigan’s “Little Bavaria,” is the most charming town I’ve ever visited. The German architecture, specialty shops, and Bavarian flags everywhere really make you feel like you’ve stepped into a storybook village! We might not be able to visit Europe as part of this year’s summer school, but […]
