Travelogue

  1. Slovenian Skies

    Date 18 Aug 2018
    Storm clouds over Pohorje The most accurate word I can use to describe what I have seen of Slovenia is bucolic. Not withstanding the fact that it is over 60% forest, the most obvious feature is the patches of rolling farmlands spread between and throughout these forests and hills and…

  2. Book Ends

    Date 03 Aug 2018
    Geres Sky Venice Sky Ljubljana Sky After the final days in the north of Portugal we spent a short time in Venice, Italy before training it to Slovenia, where we have now been for a few days, neatly book ending our time in Venice. Vineyards in the Duoro Valley In…

  3. Car 54 (Where are you?)

    Date 21 Jul 2018
    Sky Pilot Some of you may have been wondering where we’ve got to since the last entry a few weeks ago. Well, the answer is Portugal. After spending four or five days in Porto to the north, we jumped on the train to Lisbon where we spent another week checking…

  4. Moving On

    Date 02 Jul 2018
    Dawn over Mt Kazbek We spent a relatively uneventful week walking around in the cool mountains of Kazbegi (officially known as Stepantsminda) and having to deal with the somewhat parochial locals. The only thing of any note in Kazbegi is the Gergeti Trinity Church perched on its lofty hilltop high above the town and right below Mt Kazbek, which has now been…

  5. Road Trip

    Date 21 Jun 2018
    God Beams over Khor Virap Having been almost constantly on the road for the last week or so, it’s good to now be staying in one place, at least for a (short) while. We had bidden a fond farewell to our driver and guide Karen who accompanied us for much…

  6. Arme…zing

    Date 10 Jun 2018
    Clouds ove Mt Ararat and Yerevan After only a week in Armenia it has so far left a far different impression than Georgia, which as previously stated hasn’t lived up to expectations (yet!). The people and landscape, while having many similarities, are very different in so many other ways. I…

  7. A Little Further Afield

    Date 03 Jun 2018
    Acropolis Sky Parthenon from the streets of Athens First up we’ve had a five day stop over in Athens where we enjoyed yummy Greek food and a little sightseeing, and we have now left our apartment in Arcos permanently as the logistics just weren’t working for us, so sadly we…

  8. A Brief Interlude

    Date 18 May 2018
    Aspects of Arcos #104 Having spent three weeks in the UK and being so late in posting the photos from that time, I thought a few more Aspects of Arcos, including around the time of the full moon, would make a brief but picturesque interlude before we journey on to the…

  9. Moor from the UK

    Date 11 May 2018
    Salisbury Sky To start with I have to apologise for the tardiness between posts (mainly) because of connectivity issues. To compensate I have included more photos than I normally would. Since the last update we have left the bucolic surroundings of East Anglia and made the trek down to the equally bucolic…

  10. A Change of Climate

    Date 21 Apr 2018
    Lancing Beach Huts and Sky There’s quite a difference between the weather in the UK compared to the south of Spain where so many Brits spend their holiday time or retirement, and having come directly from Arcos and Seville to the south of England we can fully attest to that…
