Europe

ACCORDION ACOUSTICS

WHERE WE AT? I found some time for myself in Nice, France. I’m at the end of the day and getting tired as I was up all night working, but this scene was so interesting to me. The accordion music sounded amazing in this acoustic hall. If I closed my eyes, the sound reverberated everywhere…

TRANQUILITY

WHERE WE AT? I had more time in Nice, France. So here are some photos to share. As I walked along the beach there were a lot of Europeans from the North (i.e., London, Berlin, Copenhagen, etc.). It struck me as interesting how different cultures do things different at the beach. Americans sit on the beach…

REFLECTIONS AT THE PARK

WHERE WE AT? I had 4 days to wander about Nice, France. So I had plenty of time to get some exercise walking and exploring with my camera. It’s nice just to people watch here…espresso in hand…and enjoying the bit of sun that was warming me up. Does anyone actually dislike Europe? HOW DID I DO…

LONDON TOWER BRIDGE

This week’s photo is of the Tower Bridge in London, England. Let’s not confuse the Tower Bridge for the London Bridge. I was guilty of this confusion until I first saw the difference.

WARM SUN, WARM PEOPLE

“Photo of the Week” time! Here we are in Madrid, Spain. I usually end up in a city and have a dilemma to resolve: sleep after traveling and/or working all night, or go see the “town”. At home I am not ashamed to say that I would vote for the “sleep option” but not when…

DARK ALLEY – NICE, FRANCE

When I travel I always read the US State Department’s reports on a particular city or country just so that I am more aware of what goes on there and where to avoid. I take risks, but they are calculated and weighted against the pros and cons. Unfortunately these reports can really scare you out…

LOST IN THE ALPS :: “HIT THE ROAD” (EPISODE 3)

This was the first day of the bike ride. We picked up our motorcycles, made some adjustments, then off we went. We start down the road for a brief stop in Monte Carlo (Monaco) before heading into the foothills of the Alps. We end the day with an unplanned over-night in Sospel (France) due to running low on fuel (the village ran out of fuel too) and the approaching rain.

LOST IN THE ALPS :: “DRUNKEN DRAGON” (EPISODE 4)

The day begins in Sospel (France) with loading up on the fuel that just arrived into the village. It would be too easy to take the tunnel through the mountains to Italy, but we take the “Drunken Dragon Trail”…sober of course. We pass through Cuneo & Saluzzo (Italy) before ending the day in Pinerolo (Italy).
