He would have understood that this great-grandson, here to continue his work and keep the family tradition alive, hadn’t forgotten everything while attending engineering school after all, and that in his veins flowed the love for the land that is needed to make great wine! This hill owned me, and when I realized that I wasn’t going to be able to move forward, I had to do the one thing I was trying with all my might to avoid: I had to get off my bike, and walk it about 50 feet. As I joined a few other walkers around me, a guy kindly rode by and offered to help me if I needed it. I thanked him and said I was fine, and just did my best to get my beautiful rented bike and me up that beast of a hill. Once I got to the top, I figured I’d just slip back on the bike and keep riding. But, nope. I was huffing and puffing and no matter how hard I tried to pedal up the next smaller hill just enough to get my feet back in the toe clips, I couldn’t. I wasted so much time just … Read more
First, get your Geneva Transport Card from your hotel/hostel. The card will allow you to use public transportation – trams, buses, trains and yellow taxi-boats called Mouettes – for free. Let’s start our sightseeing with the European headquarters of UN (5 on the map). Take tram 15 from the main railway station Gare Cornavin and get off at the last stop. We would be traveling from St. Augustine, Florida to Columbia, SC (east coast of the US) and back again for a wedding. Here’s a map that shows the Amtrak train route from Jacksonville to Columbia (we departed from Jacksonville because there is no train station in St. Augustine).
Thanks for all the tips. I had no idea that some stations aren’t staffed or that you’re only allowed so much luggage. I didn’t realize some seats don’t have windows either. Actually, I was surprised at quite a few things. Aside from the photographic opportunities offered by Fortune Island’s Acropolis, the sunset is also best viewed and photographed from this location. The island also offers a great view of the lights coming from Nasugbu at night.

If you’ve ever been to southern France, you know that rosé wines are the thing to drink there. Some of them are good, some of them are great, but the ones I most want to drink are Tavel. Bit confused for India. I understand that the Visa is upon arrival. But when i checked it out on their website, it is only for certain airports. Would like to know how can I get tourist or entry visa to Lilongwe, Malawi? I’ve been searching on the internet but seems they don’t have embassy here in Philippines. Hope you can help me. Thank you in advance.
This is true rose wine. It is fermented dry, if one closes their eyes the tastes are of red fruits. In the States, we have been trained that rose wine is like- white zin, with residual sugar making it sweet and fruity. This is a dry wine. Most are made to be drunk young, although a few are designed as gastronomic wines and are intended to be age worthy. The color is vivid pink, partridge eye. The nose yields flavors of ripe red fruits- strawberry, cherry, and raspberry with some white pepper notes. The taste is … Read more
Considered by many travel experts as one of the most habitable cities in the world, Geneva has always been mistaken as the Switzerland’s capital, because it is the chosen headquarters for some of the most important international organizations such as the United Nations, World Health Organization, International Labor Organization and the International Red Cross. Common kitchen tools, their uses and correct names. If two people call the same thing by two different names, there is going to be confusion. Introduction to the basics of how a septic tank sewage system operates. How to care for it, and what mainteance is involved.
But, but, but: This tension hasn’t had any visible impact on Sessions’ agenda at the Justice Department, where he has taken a sledgehammer to Obama’s legacy (especially on incarceration, voting rights, and private prisons). And their less-than-warm relationship means good governance advocates will have one less line of criticism for the administration.
As I said, Domaine de la Mordorée is in Tavel , a wine-growing Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée, across the Rhône River from Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC. The vineyards that produce the appellation’s wines are located around the town of Tavel, just north of Avignon. Tavel wines are all rosé wines.… Read more
If you have a pre-existing condition and you want to travel it can sometimes be problematic in getting travel insurance. Insurers do not like to take calculated risks so they need to know if there is a likelihood that your condition could result in you needing medical assistance whilst you are abroad. Hi!

One of the things that we spend the least amount of time considering is our travel insurance when it could be the most important thing we do to protect ourselves whilst on holiday.

Here’s what happened: The train arrived on time. We handed in our tickets and got in line to board the train. There is no assigned seating on your ticket (in coach class), but as you board the train the conductor will reference a seating chart and tell you where to sit. Conductors keep groups together as much as possible.

Fortune Island was once a luxury island resort, but now it is now just an abandoned island with a few crumbling structures. However, this does not diminish the natural beauty that the island offers. In fact, one of these structures, called the Acropolis from the Acropolis of Athens , is the island’s current main attraction. Fortune Island’s Acropolis stands on a rocky cliff that juts out into the water. Many visit the island to take photos by this crumbling structure that is an imitation of the famous ancient citadel in Greece. The 2012 winner, Seattle’s Beechers Handmade Cheese Company beat out 1710 other entrees with its Flagsheep: a mixed cow and sheep milk cheddar from herds of Willapa Hills near Centralia Washington. Unfortunately, only 23 wheels were made, and the demand is far greater than the supply. If you are in Seattle, you may still be lucky enough to score some at Beecher’s Pike Street Market store, but the rest of us are likely out of luck.

If you’re a Filipino and a holder of Philippine passport who likes traveling and exploring the beauty of the world, but hates the visa requirement to some countries, frown no more for you can still go to wonderful places without hassle-visa-appointments. As I meet more and more people in this new identity as a DPT student, I find myself still wanting to tell them about a whole different life I had before all this. Most of the people who I meet now don’t know much about the girl who spent a month volunteering in Costa Rica, a month traveling alone around Mexico, and months fighting a parasite in Ecuador (among other exotic and dangerous adventures, although Juan the Amoeba certainly left his mark). Most don’t know what led to this person, to this blog, and what led to giving all of that up. (And who’s to say anyone cares?!) That said, the time has come to put TwT aside for a little bit. I’m still Travels with Tavel. I always will be! But I’ve decided to keep more of the journey to myself, now.
Hopefully I was able to make it interesting and beautiful, There are a lot more places … Read more
Wondering what to expect on your first train trip? We did too! My daughter and I recently traveled by Amtrak Train. We weren’t sure what to expect or exactly how things would go so we kept a record of all that happened so we could share it here with you. We learned many things and hope this article will help other first time train travelers with their first train trip. Pale salmon pink color. Fruity nose of thiols with intensity and citrus aromas. Soft in the mouth, light and tonic on the palate, with nice and intense crisp flavours. A fresh, spicy and fragrant final. A beautiful vintage with style modern, more accessible than its elders, for aperitif and summer meals.
