Ramblin’ Man

October 27, 2017

I spent the last month on virtually non-stop US and international travel. The next few posts will just be stuff I saw. Here are two shots of Bern, the lovely Swiss capital built around a kink in the Aare River. Absolutely delightful. Cannot wait to return.

8-Passenger Van

September 20, 2017

I think I might have mentioned once that when I order ground transportation for crew and gear, I’ve learned not to order any kind of minivan. Rather, I’m sure to specify a minimum 8-passenger van. We use 1CARES while in Europe as they go all-out to meet our expectations – even to the extent of providing this (for a trip from Krefeld Germany to Amsterdam) just to be sure we had the room we needed.

Procrastinicity

May 31, 2017

I didn’t know this the last time I renewed my passport – about 6 months ago – but a bunch of countries won’t accept passports scheduled to expire within 6 months of your initial date of entry. For Shengen countries – we’re talking Europe here – it’s a mere three months. So check your passport – if it’s expiring this year or early next, get it renewed now.
