Heal Thyself in a Roman Turkish Bath House

  It seems that Hungary sits over a steaming inferno of water…   Hungary has a reputation for having the best Roman Turkish bath houses in Europe.   People from all over Europe, as well as from other parts of the world, visit their famous medicinal hot springs.   Thermal baths are literally spread all over the country. There are over 140 registered thermal baths in Hungary and over 1300 thermal springs.   The city of Budapest holds the title of having the most thermal and medicinal springs than any other city in the world.   The Roman Turkish bath houses are … More…

Venice: The Grand Seduction

  The approach to Venice by train is seductive in itself…    Just seeing a city floating on water is astonishing. How did they do that? Why did they do that?   Apparently it wasn’t intentional. It happened sometime around the fall of the Roman Empire when the mainland was invaded and the residents escaped to the protected lagoon of Venice.    Venice is a maze of tiny cobbled streets and narrow alleys, ribbon-like canals, singing gondoliers, graceful little arched bridges, and thousands of masquarade-like art shops.    There is nothing more memorable than the golden sound of the gondolier’s song lilting through the … More…

This was our biggest mistake, and we know better. Our excuse was that we had a house sit in France … More…

Superb Food In Southern France?

  One day, from our House Sit, we went out to a 4 star Michelin Chef restaurant that had raving reviews on Trip Adviser, and was also highly recommended by a neighbor.   The host/owner offered impeccable service and the menu looked absolutely scrumptious:   We liked the soup a lot – a thick mushroom soup, in a tiny bowl.   I was truly excited about this meal…   The asparagus/scallop appetizer was what I looked forward to the most because I love scallops. We could not see or taste a scallop, and the dish was a cold mouse/gel aspic, with … More…

Never Too Old: A Caribbean Cruise (Guest Post)

*This is a Guest Post by a Dear Friend, Irmi M. NEVER TOO OLD December 13th: A Real Commotion First I was worried about the date. On top of it being the 13th, it was Friday. I had to leave that thought loose and not start making up something in my mind. Monika had given me a present and I would enjoy the trip and never even think about the date. I must admit I packed for two weeks and unpacked for two weeks, several times. But finally, I also knew that I always pack too much so I had … More…
