The biegnets are nice and the coffee can be good. That said, you can take that can of Café du Monde chickory coffee and make better. Of course you won't be offered the...

    We walked from our accommodation on Sutter Street, near the city Centre, to Lombard Street, which is called “The Crookedest Street in the World”. Wow, those hills sure can be steep! Lombard Street is a part of a district interestingly called Russian Hill. The neighbourhood's name goes back to the Gold Rush era, when settlers discovered a small...

    After a long walk from Union Square to the wharf, we were looking for SOMETHING to eat. How can you miss the giant Boudin building right in the center of the action? For breakfast, we ended up in their Bakers Hall, which houses a cafeteria style line. They have a handful of sandwiches and scrambles, as well as a few standbys such as french toast. I...

    Last visit to Rosemont location October 2015 Giordano's comes up a lot as one of people's favorite pizzas, I hadn't been to one in many years, not because I don't like their pizza, just because I always seem to be taking people to Lou Malnati's for deep dish or because Edwardo's is more convenient for us for stuffed. But when Peter (loisl) came to...

    Smathers Beach is the largest public beach in Key West. Powdery soft sand, turquoise water, lined with palm trees - it is what a south Florida beach should look like!

It is located at the end of Quincy Market's food hall with it's own separate entrance from the outside. We decided to check out the menu and see what they had to...

We were lucky - our spot was toward the top of the lot, so we didn't have as much to walk. There are...

    Went there for an anniversary dinner with the wife while in Sedona. Very nice atmosphere, the place is always crowded with a wait so come early. The food was good, hard to mess up a fire grilled ribeye without trying real hard. It's a bit pricey for what you get but for a special treat it is worth it.

    L'Hermione the boat that took the Marquis de Lafayette to help the US independence in 1780 is rebuilt after 17 yrs of work and set sails for Yorktown again! Will stop first there by June 5 and then onwards to Baltimore, New York, Annapolis, Philadelphia, Newport, and Boston. At New York on July 4 there will be a big celebration overlooking the Statue of Liberty. leparisien.fr/poitou-charent...

    As I read a book about America's 6th President, John Quincy Adams, it is interesting to read about his travels at an early age with his father, John Adams, the 2nd President, and by himself. A few quotes and observations from a book by Harlow Giles Unger.

    "Foreign travel would also enhance John Quincy's education and accelerate his evolution into the wise and great man his parents expected him to become."
    At age 10 he and his father made their first crossing across the Atlantic where they were chased by 3 British frigates who were out to capture the senior John Adams.
    On his second voyage at age 12 "savage storms split the ships seams, water seeped aboard and the captain ordered all adults (10 and over) to take turns working the pumps in 4 hour shifts." They did this over the course of many days. When they finally reached land and "after the men stopped pumping 7 feet of water had filled the hull of the ship."

    At Age 16 because of his language skills be went to Russia as a secretary/translator with Francis Dana, U.S. minister to the court of Empress Catherine II (who spoke no French). French was then the language of diplomacy. To get from where he and his father were in Holland to St Petersburg he travelled 2000 miles through various countries and kept a daily diary. After his duties there ended he made his way back to Holland via Scandanavia and Germany. He especially enjoyed Sweden where he "plunged into Swedish life for early six rapture-filled weeks." His thoughts about the Swedes at the time were "I believe there is no country in Europe where the people are more hospitable and affable to strangers."

    Here's to America's first European travelller, John Quincy Adams.

    He would have been a great VT member. Don't you think?
