You are very welcome. We had never been to Idaho, and Twin Falls is now one of my favorite cities. Such a gorgeous state. Glad you enjoyed my post

Re: Pittsburgh's North Side

George G. ·
My parents lived and grew up on the Northside from the 1920's to the 1950's. I was born in the city and baptized on the Northside. My grandparents Northside house is now in a dangerous slum area. There are many great ethnic eateries in the area, especially German in the Northside neighborhood of Deutschtown. Max's Tavern is a great spot for German fare and beer.

One of my biggest regrets of my Colorado road trip of a few years ago was deciding we didn't have time for the Durango and Silverton...and you just reminded me why I regret it! Great story!

A few times on road trips to Italy from my US Army base in Augsburg Germany, we stayed a few days at Lake Garda. Just a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the many local wines ... our favorite was Bardolino. Each time we stayed at a small family run pension in a lakefront room in the town of Sirmione which is perched on small sliver of a peninsula jutting out into the southern portion of the lake. Owners were very friendly and engaging. We enjoyed walking the old town and having a delicious...

It's amazing how many interesting, and often small, local museums there are. It's too easy to only notice the big ones with the big names! Keep these coming!

Re: In Egypt: Up the Nile

Amateuremigrant ·
Egypt is always going to be a conveyor belt for most visitors, outside of the resorts, and it's hard to get around this, given the country's geography. But PM is right to take the costs on the chin; how many times are you going to be there in this life ? Obviously didn't miss much, from her photos !

Re: In Egypt: Up the Nile

Back in 1989, when TWA still existed, took their 14 day tour. I believe there were 35 of us. We started in Cairo - 4 days staying at Mena House opposite the pyramids A huge WOW! During our stay there we traveled to Sakkaha and Memphis. Boarded a bus that took us to Alexandria - 2 days staying at Montazah Sheraton. From there we took a train to Aswan (dirty dishes - everyone sick). In Aswan, we stayed on Elephantine Island's Loews Aswan Oberoi. Went to Temples of Philae and flew to Abu...

Re: Salt River Tubing -- Mesa, Arizona

Sounds like my kind of river cruise. It's fun in cooler climates, too: my experiences have been on the upper reaches of the Delaware, but the feeling of just "being there" must be similar!

The one I have in the photo is married (this was to avoid confusion, I was there with my boyfriend but we're not really married). The one for single was a lot simpler, just a streak on each cheek as I remember it, but I didn't get to see the one for 'looking' as no one in our group was!!

Re: Welcome to the town of Dawson City, Yukon

PHeymont ·
It's hard for me to imagine the short arc of Dawson's heyday. In 1902 some of the most important buildings were going up, obviously reflecting a future of growth and wealth—and yet, within the same year, the population shrank to an eighth of what it had been only a year or two earlier!

Re: Welcome to the town of Dawson City, Yukon

DrFumblefinger ·
That's the nature of gold boom towns, PHeymont. I believe another gold vein had been found in Alaska near the mouth of the mighty Yukon River, and most of the Klondike prospectors flowed downriver to it. I've been fascinated by the Klondike gold rush since I was a school boy in Canada, reading the writing of Pierre Burton (famous Canadian author, former resident of Dawson City, whose father was one of those who came here during the Klondike Gold Rush and unlike most stayed in Dawson). On the...

Re: The Medieval Fortress and Town of Chinon

PortMoresby ·
I love Chinon, thought it the perfect place when I spent a few days there resting up, after a week or so walking from chateau to chateau from Chambord. Uncrowded, an idyllic setting, small yet big enough - in short, it has everything. And residents not touristed out, as places can get, loved to death. Many thanks for the reminder, DrF, as beautiful as I remember.

Thanks for your comment, Mimiadventures! Good food, great music, nice people -- always something great to return to. I really didn't get into the great local food very much, but Memphis is reknowned for its "soul" style cooking and, of course, its BBQ.

The starkness and solidity of the stone ruins brings both transience and permanence to mind...and a sense of how small a space our years occupy on a long scale. Thanks for such strong images!

Re: England gets a coast-to-coast canoe route

GarryRF ·
As you can see from this photo - the tow path makes an excellent route for cycling too. And walkers. No traffic or roads to cross. Friends often take their canoes for a paddle. Others just go fishing. Maybe just a walk in silence - except for the occasional canalside pub where they have a kids playground. And the ducks quacking. (No shooting allowed)

Re: Underground Puerto Rico: The Camuy River Caverns

Las Cavernas was one of the first places I went to on my first trip to Puerto Rico. Back then the Autopista (expressway) was not yet complete and it was closer to 3 hours each way. But the caverns were on of the reason I fell in love with isalnd.

Re: June 21, 2016: Medieval Budapest in the 21st Century

Such an awesome post. For me one of the my favorite parts of travel is imagining the people who lived in the past and think of them in their daily lives. How much do we have in common with them and how much are our lives different then theirs were. Thanks for a great look at the history of Budapest.

Re: June 21, 2016: Medieval Budapest in the 21st Century

Thank you TravelingCanuck! I feel the same way you do about wondering what it was like so any centuries ago. Our surroundings have changed, but I am sure they were concerned about the same things we are: love, finances, jobs, politics, religion, family and friends.
