Easy to see why Romeo found Juliet’s so easily. It’s the only one in the whole street!

Jordan, a fascinating country.
Friendly people, great food, Petra, the Dead Sea, red desserts…

One of the great takeaways from our trip to Jordan in 2018 was the stairs.
Everywhere! Some things never change!

A beautiful town near Avignon, famous for its beautiful Roman amphitheater.
Those Romans sure were busy!

So this weekend, we went to Greenwich.

Some things have changed… there wasn’t an IGA last time we were here… but I’m pleased to report the Prime Meridian remains.

They did a good job rebuilding after the war.

Dresden Pl, Raymond Terrace

Bender Parade

Posted: January 31, 2021 in Sydney Streets

2018 we set out to walk all the streets in our family tree.

A few we didn’t manage to cover as the only instances of that street were geographically difficult.

So, this weekend, while we were up Newcastle way for something else, we walked Bender Parade, Kotara.

Keith and Pat Bender, Robyn’s parents. Great people.

The Danube

Ahh the Danube. Some famous cities straddle Europe’s second longest river, including Linz and Vienna in Austria.

A little warmer this time; we’ve never visited in Summer before so the change in the landscape is striking.

Having arrived the night before departure we had the evening at leisure, so we had time for some Sangria. Delicious!

The next morning, we were on our way. The river was just beautiful!

We docked beside a beautiful, huge old fig, which had some of the local area’s dry stone walls running to it. We found a stone that didn’t belong *

Finished the night with, of course, schnitzel. Perhaps not as good as previous, but still, it completed the holiday, back in Vienna.
And an ice cream 🙂

All in all, a lovely weekend away (in Kiama).

Reims

2021 has begun in the same fashion that 2020 ended… Sydney has entered a new lockdown for some, masks have become compulsory indoors, and travel is, for the time being, off.

Can’t see overseas travel returning this year at all.

So, with that in mind, we’re doing an internal NSW travel experience.

We’ll walk a street that has a connection to a past overseas holiday each week.

This week we revisited Reims. There’s been a few changes since we last visited 😉

Reims Street, Russell Lea.
Same same, but different
Coffee 🙂
