Joe is feeding the fish his finger. I don't think that is allowed at the park.

From the Past

I was looking a old photos today and these came up. I remember the trips to Halfway Log Dump well. We spent many weekends here. This was at a time when the park was open to the public for camping. It is now a National Park. There is now a fee (honour system) that is collected at the front entrance.

In the days that camping was allowed, it was a good and bad thing because some people didn't respect the cleanliness of the park and littered and broke beer bottles. There was a lot of trees being destroyed for bedding as well as for burning.

We visited this area this year with our guests from Hungary and it brought back some very fond memories.

I'd be guessing that the year is 1978 or 79. Based on the way that I look.

Our plans are coming along. We tend to go to Tunis, Cartage, Sidi Bou Said, Djerba and Douz in Tunisia. In Turkey we will go to Istanbul (our satelite base) Capadocia, Denezel and Epheses. We later will travel to Budapest Hungary.

I think that this will be one of our more exotic travels. Except for a bit of culture shock, I am looking forward to this.

I must get some pounds off me before we go. I am getting sluggish and bit heavy and that isn't good for travelling.

Working Overtime for our trip

I am working as many hours overtime as I can to get some cash for our trip coming up. We are still thinking of staying even longer in Tunisia because there is so much to see and do.

Today will be busy driving bus, because it is the last Saturday before Christmas.

Adventure 2010

It won't be long and Joe and I will take yet another world trip. This time our travels will take us to Istanbul, Ankara, Capedocia and Ephesus in Turkey and on to Tunisia where will take in Tunis, Souse and Douz in the Sahara dessert. The last week of our vacation will be in our favourite city of Budapest, Hungary.

We are carefully planning our air travel as well as hotels in the selected cities.

More to come as we get closer to the wire.
