Tuk Tuk & Go then Trek Trek – Lisbon 6/3/22

It’s Lisbon and I’m writing late at night. I’m exhausted but I figured I oughta finish this before I slip into dreamland. Today we climbed into an electric Tuk Tuk driven by the terrific Portuguese native (yet educated in USA and UK,) Isaac. Riding in one of these vehicles over cobblestones is an experience similar … Continue reading Tuk Tuk & Go then Trek Trek – Lisbon 6/3/22

I’m too old for this shit, I think. 7 August 2022

My daughter is a music artist. She sings. Boy does she ever. She’s really good. It’s not just that I’m her mother. There’s nothing worse (in my book…) than a loud obnoxious, kvelling mother goin on incessantly about her talented child but…others agree and, She gets paid for her art. She sings every Sunday at … Continue reading I’m too old for this shit, I think. 7 August 2022

I haven’t a Clue, but that’s ok – 4 August 20I22

Once again I’m at a semi-loss as to what I’m doing. With my life in general. Then I think, “You’re 72 years old don’t you think you should know what the fuck you’re doing?” To which I respond, (since I am talking to myself, because whoever you are, you will go on with your life … Continue reading I haven’t a Clue, but that’s ok – 4 August 20I22

Adios Barcelona 29 June & where the hell have you been? 11 July 2022

I’m in a taxi sailing down the highway on the way to the aeropuerto. We left casa Camper and wove our way through the ramblas and an assortment of dazed and confused people/tourists. My cabbie has put on madonnas “Like a virgin”. Weeee! He just took a curve like it’s the Indy 500. Yesterday I … Continue reading Adios Barcelona 29 June & where the hell have you been? 11 July 2022

Friends, Horses, Siestas and Dogs -Barcelona to Vic – 20 June 2022

I sincerely believe that if I didn’t have dogs I might sleep until 10am every day. At home my three pups are like fucking roosters when it comes to rousing me, usually at 7 am. Give me a break I often tell them! They ignore my pleas. This can be tiresome. I woke at 8am … Continue reading Friends, Horses, Siestas and Dogs -Barcelona to Vic – 20 June 2022

A Bus Ride into the Past, Madrid and La Alberca – 9-15, June 2022

Excuse me while I count my lucky stars as well as ignore the unfortunate ones. Okay I’m done, for now. Thursday was a relatively simple one. I ate my 11 euro breakfast in the hotel Meninas basement cafe. The buffet spread was vast, the pastries assorted, pork aplenty, eggs, cheeses, cereals with condiments, juices, fresh … Continue reading A Bus Ride into the Past, Madrid and La Alberca – 9-15, June 2022

Hurry up and wait – 8 June 2022

I’m wondering whether traveling by plane is even worth the alleged time saved. It’s certainly not saving our environment. And man oh corporate patriarchal man, if you’ve not yet seen the international departure lounges lately you wouldn’t believe the mall-like Victorias Secret/McDonalds atmosphere. Consumer-arama. I got up early partly because I’m still riding on the … Continue reading Hurry up and wait – 8 June 2022
