The malaria from the skeeters and the bacteria in the foods in the Third World could be a problem then. When I took that safari up the river, malaria was a big concern. So was Diptheria & there was an outbreak of the plague at that time. I was just 3 weeks out of surgery at the time and had been growing live cultures in the fridge for immunization about 2 months prior to the surgery.We did have a fellow on our trip ignore all warnings and he was very sick. Another person that I knew got a parasite and still had it 3 years later.

That's what those structures were on that Elephant ride safari, tree houses.

I had a friend who took a horseback vacation tour through Ireland. It was 10 days and she said it was awesome. She learned to travel very light on that trip.

That all is interesting. so many things in the world I know nothing about!

We're back from Bermuda cruise and loved it! I am pressed for time but I think I'll do a new thread for bermuda, or for islands, in this forum. Later it would be easier to find for people who want to read that specific topic, eh?

One of the most fun cities that I ever visited was Barcelona Spain. I spent about 5 days there before embarking on a Mediterranean Cruise from there. This is a wonderfully cosmopolitan seaside city with lots to offer all types of tourists. I had the good fortune to trade some travel points to stay at the nicest, newest hotel on the beach, just a short walk from the city center. The Hotel Arts is a destination in itself.

The seafood in this city is unparalleled. whether you take the concierge's recommendation and go to a really fine restaurant, or ask the cabbie to take you down to some of the neighborhood dock areas, there is great seafood to be found everywhere, some quite inexpensively. There are also many traditional spanish and basque dishes available and should certainly be sampled.

Fashion and beautiful women are very much an attraction in Barcelona. Leather goods are abundant and reasonably priced. Haute Couture is very nicely priced in this city, more so than in many other European locations. This is a city for art lovers. The Gaudy parks and buildings are breathtaking and none should be missed. This is the city where the Beaux Arts movement started and flourished. Entire neighborhood blocks are great examples of this both inside and out. Many of the buildings are open for viewing. Gaudy's Apartment Buildings with their matching hand made furnishings are a must see,

There are great open air bus tours that allow you to get off and on at will to explore different sights along the way. Head on down to the docks and catch a beautiful mini ocean cruise or a sailboat ride. The beaches are spectacular and you will see many beautiful and sleek Europeans sunning there. The residents are extremely helpful and accomodating.

Up on LasRamblas, the very long market street, there is always lots of free entertainment and music. The nightlife is very busy in Barcelona and you can get an excellent Mojito and see some fabulous latin styles of dancing everywhere. The Cathedrals are beautiful, especially the Gaudy one that has been under continuous construction for almost 100 years. I believe that it will be completed in another 30 or so years. In general, the prices for everything in Barcelona are better than in most other European cities making this a great destinations for Americans. The Casino here is very nice too.

Sounds wonderful -- and I've have heard one or two other people mention Barcelona.

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack - well, I've been back for a few weeks, however - trying to play catch-up with house, work and 'other stuff' - it's been non-stop going since I came home, until this weekend - I'm refusing to do a darned thing!

My trip was awesome - cooler temps the entire time I was there, never got above 75 and some nights were in the 40's :-) I ate fish, fish and some more fish, drank more beer than I have in eons, saw people I ain't seen in 26+++ years, had some "oh my gawd, really???" moments - attended and photographed a wedding, volunteered at an 'alternative rock' festival, took long nature walks, took tons of pictures of local fauna and the surrounding nature - even met some goats :) Thumb of 2010-09-05/Becks/02b9f0
