2010 Vibrant Europe Trip a Success . . .

Well, it's been a week since I returned from my fantastic trip to Amsterdam, Holland, Brugge, Belgium and Berlin, Germany.  I had such a great time and blogged about it live on my other Trekcapri Blog.  This last return flight home was probably one of the most challenging flights that I've had to endure. And […]

Travel Thoughts:  Remember the true meaning of things . . .

  Twas the night before my trip and all through my house the sound of paper shuffling and zippers zipping and the panic of OMG I'm leaving soon can be heard   Okay, it's not Christmas yet, and okay I'm not very poetic. But I'm in that nervous pre departure panic mode and I need […]

Travel Technology:  IBooks & Amazon Kindle on my ITouch . . .

I recently discovered two free applications for my iTouch (also good for iPad):  iBooks and Amazon Kindle   These two applications allows me to purchase books from the iBooks and Amazon Kindle Stores.  I was able to purchase a few guide books for my trip plus a couple of fun novels to while away the long […]

Travel Technology: Guess what I discovered 21 days before I leave . . .

I can't believe I didn't discover this sooner.  On my i-touch I downloaded the iBooks and Amazon Kindle applications and voila I have several books (Travel Guides and a couple of Trashy novels) to read while on my trip. The costs can actually rival the costs of buying the hard copy at B&N. And I […]

Yikes! . . . .

Yikes! . . . .

I was debating whether to put up a countdown clock for my trip for fear that it might freak me out.  I decided to add it and guess what happened.  Freak out!  😀  37 days!  How did time fly so fast.  I've been using every spare moment reading and learning about the cities I'll be visiting. […]

Trek’s Audio Guide to Vibrant Europe – LOL

Okay, when I first came up with the idea of creating my own Trekcapri audio guides to help me during my sightseeing adventures, I forgot about the fact that I'll have to pronounce some of the names of these places.  And let me tell you!  I haven't yet gotten to my Belgium and Berlin recordings yet, […]

Amsterdam: Introduction (Audio Test)

Amsterdam:  Introduction (Audio Test)

I recorded this very brief audio clip of an Introduction to Amsterdam . . . This is so funny, I was trying not to sound like the typical boring podcast narrator, but it just sort of naturally comes out that way even when I set some music in the background to jazz it up.  I'm such […]

Travel Thoughts – My love-hate relationship!

Today my new i-Touch will arrive! Yay!  64 Gigs of memory, a front and back facing camera, voice memo’s, high definition video viewing and recording, retina display for sharper images, gaming features … I’m very excited to start playing with it.  So yesterday, I was talking with a friend who read an article that the new […]

Berlin: My Food Adventures Awaits

Berlin:  My Food Adventures Awaits

When I think of all the three countries I'll be visiting on my November trip, I think my food adventures in Berlin could be my most adventurous.   Shannon posted a really interesting thread on Slow Talk about this cool event called the "Currywurst Field" taking place in Berlin.  I won't get to attend since I arrive in Berlin […]

Bruges:  My Food Adventures awaits . . .

Did you know that "French Fries" was not invented by America or by the French?  While doing my research, I was surprised to learn that the Frie was actually invented in Belgium!   In fact, in the city of Bruges there is a museum called "The Friet Museum",  that is dedicated to learning about the history of the Belgian Frie!    I'm totally excited, up […]
