After a 2+-year hiatus, I’m returning to my blog to document our recent cruise to the Caribbean. Last night was a trip down memory lane as I read every post of this blog from beginning to end. It’s neat to see all the cool things I’d mostly forgotten. It’s also sad to realize all the major events that were barely documented if at all: our 1st cruise (2 years before I started this blog), our trips to London, Lanzarote, Melilla and our Alaska cruise are some of the things barely mentioned here. We used to keep a separate website for […]
Well, I have to say I showed a lot of restraint in allowing my wife to have her own domain name for 2 whole weeks before registering my own! I’m going to keep the old site up for a few days while I make sure the new one, with its shiny new mysql database, works just fine.
Unlike the cruise entries, where I back-dated them to match the dates of the actual trip, I think I’m going to leave these entries dated as I write them. That will keep my home page from going blank every couple of weeks. Back in November, while Ellen was enjoying an excursion to the States, I had to go to The Netherlands for business. Although it sounds like a dream-come-true for a Maxim subscriber, my trip was pretty low-key. First, notice that I didn’t say Holland. Although it’s still popularly called by that name, one of the official government websites I […]
If anyone actually pays attention to this page, I will soon (a relative term) be converting it from the summer vacation travel blog to my general travel blog and maybe just a regular blog, who knows. Right now I have trips to Holland, London, and Melilla/Morocco to write up. If you read this and leave a comment or email, it will definitely provide some incentive to get those trips posted in a timely fashion!
For as much information as I have in my head about this trip, I’m having such a hard time deciding how to start! I guess the best thing to do is give a general overview and then go from there! For anyone who might stumble across this without knowing who we are, Ellen and I live in Santiago de la Ribera, Spain, where I’m stationed at the Spanish Air Force Academy as an Exchange Instructor Pilot. You can find more info about us and where we live through the main site at www.tedandellen.com. This summer we are going on a […]
Ellen and I are going on a big vacation from July 24th to August 6th, and here in these pages I’m planning to describe everything I can, from start to finish. I’ll be posting mainly about the technical parts of the trip, such as reservations, websites, prices, etc. The goal is to post the whole plan before we leave and then report on how everything went once we get back. At the same time, Ellen’s planning to keep her own journal of the trip, which is bound to be more descriptive and less about the travel specifics. Between the two […]
