Returning to Esslingen. Remembering. Part Two.
When I wrote my post about journeying to Esslingen to
commemorate the 70 th anniversary of the first Song & Dance
Festival held outside of Latvia, I never imagined such an over-whelming
response to my story. My mum was 15 when her family fled Soviet occupie...

Returning to Esslingen and re-tracing the past.
It’s been 70 years. I’m returning to a town where I’ve never been.   Returning to memories that are not mine.   Returning to re-trace footsteps from so very
long ago. I’m about to step foot into the past. To remember.   To
honour.   To celebrate.   And to s...

Next stop! Würzburg . The castles, baroque statues and vineyards we never got to see..
You know that it’s going to be an extraordinarily long day
when you inadvertently hop on the wrong train, disembark in a strange town and
end up squandering the remainder of the afternoon away miles off the beaten
track.  Nothing like hoisting and hauling

Stuck in the Black Forest - A pink sneaker detour and the trouble with tunnels
In hindsight, it’s a good thing that we didn’t have a
map.   Or even a clue as to where exactly
in Germany we were.   For, if I had any
inkling that we were headed in the opposite direction, I wouldn’t be in this
roadblock of a predicament, miles off track ...

Black Forest tunnel blues - perhaps we should purchase a cuckoo clock and other such gibberish
At first, I hadn’t yet clued in that something was not quite
right.   Nestled cosily in my seat,
alternating between napping and absentmindedly staring out the window, I
wondered if the next stop would finally be ours.   Stuttgart should be coming up soon, ...

The hills are alive with the sound of music...detour via Vienna en route to Stuttgart.
For a change of pace, I’m going to veer off track, jump right
in the middle of the storyline and fast-forward to my unplanned journey through
the Black Forest.   How did I unexpectedly
end up on a train barrelling through a 20-kilometre long tunnel in the A...

Back to the business of pedalling A and Z
B.A.C.K. To the basics. On the road again. Or, was that back on track? Back to the business of pedalling A and Z and hanging out
with 26 of my dearest friends. But we’ve been estranged for the past little while. So, should I just weave you a tale or come cl...

Stop the presses!!
Spinning stories and weaving webs are somewhat of a
specialty of mine.   After all, dear
reader, why bore you to tears with tales of the mundane, when I can regale you
instead with travel Miss-adventures of the Nora Pink Sneaker inspired kind? Schlepping su...

A piano in the park and a cha-cha-cha with the chickadees and chipmunks in Gananoque
No road trip is complete without inadvertently stumbling
across the odd and the unusual or even the downright strange.   After all, one is almost guaranteed to come
across – but, only if you keep your eyes wide open! – something that is so
outrageous and ou...

Cell-Phone on the Go via a detour to the US of A!
You know that there’s a slight “problem” when your cell
phone inadvertently ends up “visiting” the United States, while your pink
sneaker clad tootsies have remained planted on firma terra on the other side of
the border.   And, to further complicate matter...
