I talked Terry into “being a local”. I tell him, “Just think honey how much fun it will be to stay in an apartment, shop in village markets, walk to local cafes and bars and listen to the music of foreign languages.

Here we are on our last day of the cruises. We dock in Lisbon. We will be spending two days here taking a master Photography class workshop with Andy Mumford, an Englishman, who transplanted himself to Portugal almost twenty years ago. Continue reading Where the King Goes

This is our last day in Barcelona. Our cruise departs this evening. Too much to see, too little time. After once again storing our cumbersome luggage, we meet Sonia in the glass-walled lobby.
