Zoo Basel – Basel, Switzerland

Sonya loves a great zoo, and for a small city Basel has a very good one.  Here are a few highlights from our last visit…

Montreux & the Swiss Alps by Train

Just a quick post to share photos of our recent trip into the alps.  Hopefully the first of many…

Here’s a quick link to the slide show as well:



Start Me Up – Basel, Switzerland

Just a quick note for the moment.  We’ve moved to Basel, Switzerland and with any luck I will start writing again.  Look for more here and on the Spokanites Blog

It’s been a crazy few months since the global wedding extravaganza, but hopefully things will settle down and I can get back into it. 

Lot’s to tell for sure.  Stay tuned…

Safe travels!


Looking for Spokanites Hitched 2010 Tour Updates?

Greetings from the road again (today, I’m in Singapore in transit between Sri Lanka and Sydney, Australia).  If you are here looking for updates from The Spokanites, they can be found here.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go here first.  :)  Lastly, if you want to see the latest photos, go to the photo section.

I should have new photos from the road up on the site this weekend sometime (I hope).  Enjoy!


Arrival in Buenos Aires, Argentina

The adventure continues, and this time with my lovely fiancé in tow.  We landed in Buenos Aires this morning, headed straight for the apartment we rented in the Recoleta district, and immediately took a nap.  In fact, it was the first of two naps today, making it a good day indeed.  This is one of the first trips I have been on where jet lag is a good thing.  Everything happens late here so we need to sleep in and stay up late.  The average dinner time is around 11pm!

After nap #1, we headed out for lunch (at 3pm).  We stayed close in Recoleta by hitting a local craft market near the famous Recoleta cemetery.  As expected, our first meal was steak at an Argentinean Parilla (steak house).  This will be a common meal for us over the rest of this trip and we plan to take advantage.

After lunch with bought some groceries to stock the apartment before our friends Dominic & Gillian arrive (tomorrow morning) and then promptly commenced nap #2, which would take us all the way to dinner at 11pm at another steak house.  These people know their beef and we have barely gotten started.

It’s 2:30 am now so finally off to bed for the third time today.  I hope this trend continues…
