    Last weekend went over to San Antonio to visit my wife’s nephews. I’m really liking that town, it’s hilly and has some lovely neighborhoods. You may know there are a lot of German descendents in Texas. We ran around a downtown district called the King William District, that before WWI was called the Kaiser Wilhelm District. Funny how War changes things.

    Of interest, one of the features that really impressed me were electric scooters parked all over the city for rent. They were a $1.00 to rent and something like $.20 a minute. I predict something like this with automated cars is a given for urban environments in the near future.

    Lived there for several years, quite a nice place.

    Family and I are heading to Amsterdam with a quick one day in Paris this December. Anyone out there have any 'must see' places in or near Amsterdam?

    Just spent a week in Lake Como (specifically Bellagio) for my honeymoon, and had a great time. Gorgeous, gorgeous place.

    It was definitely one of the prettiest places I've ever been. Great for a honeymoon or celebrating a similar special occasion, but if you're looking for an 'authentic' travel experience, it's not ideal. We wanted to be somewhere gorgeous, do some light hiking, drink entirely too much wine and/or spritz, and be pampered by a hotel that's waaaay too high end for our reality back home. It checked all those boxes exceptionally well.

    But for a regular vacation, I think we'd prefer to be somewhere a little more 'real', if that makes any sense. :)

    Always love this island as it’s such an easy journey from home as it’s only a 2hr flight etc.

    Going to retire there in about 10 years. Less, if I'm lucky.

    We stopped at Mallorca on a Viking Ocean Cruise, very nice, although a relatively short stay.
