We sit here in our lounge on a drab rainy Monday afternoon in January worrying about our waistlines following an overindulgent Christmas getting morose until we decided to think of something to do about it.  We wanted to lift our spirits and work out how we can shift a few pounds in the process.  Did we […]

The good news was we were finally getting to visit a place in Spain we had been longing to see.  The bad news was that our travel plans only allowed us 42 hours to pack in our first taste of Spain’s capital city. We knew this would involve a lot of walking, a bit of […]

The Asia trip had got off to a good start despite the late arrival of our luggage from KLM. Never mind, we had entertained ourselves with all that Bangkok had to offer. We had filled ourselves on Asian cuisine and got our minds in the rhythm of Asia time and our taste buds back into […]
