There may be a bit of repeat here….

Mom and  I left for India February 8th  landing in Delhi..We did 17 days with a car and driver mostly in Rajasthan, with the other side of  the loop through Arga to see the Taj Mahal then back to Delhi were we switched cars and drivers ( not tour company) to go north for a visit in a village outside of Hardiwar, then a short drive to Rishikish on the Ganges River in the foothills of  the Himalayas . Rishikish is so holy a place one can only eat vegetarian food. Ashrams and Yogis by the street full, very little pollution and did I mention on the Ganges River.

Anywho, the India pics are going to require a couple days of sorting, re-sizing and posting so… I decided to post a few Roatan pics first. I know, I know there are a ton of them here… yet these are new, I finally bought a underwater case for my camera.

Well, fudge.. it looks like I did not reload my image software after the computers last melt down. Give me a day or so to find the disc.  Shezz.

Excuses

Sadly I have run out of time..I am in the middle of prep for a road trip from Colorado to Washington State.

I am going to take a client’s dog to Salt Lake City where the breeder is going to show him. I will then go on to Port Angeles, Washington to visit with friends I made on my road trip last June. Should be good fun.

I think I can get back to the Syria bit long about May 15th.

New Plan

Filed under: Interlude — she_travels at 2:15 pm on Thursday, April 22, 2010

I am living with Mack Attack the cat and his sister Lulu….the two of them are a hoot.

Sadly, Mack’s house does not have wireless, my computer does not work here.

The good news is Cedric’s mom is in NY, I am going down to his house to feed the horses.

The plan…resize pics, upload them from Cedric’s house and use the computer at Mack’s house to update the blog. The whole not updated thing is really starting to bug me.

There ya have it, new plan…lets see if I can pull it off.

Day 28- Still and Again ~ Oops!

Here is to hoping my time and connection are consistent enough to get a fair portion of  this done. I have been in Colorado for just over three weeks… I managed to survive Spring Break and withdrawal symptoms from sugar (nasty headache for 10 days). I am finally feeling pretty good with plenty of energy to sort, re-size and post pics to go with the wacky stories.

Ok. having trouble uploading pics…did I mention I have over 7 gig of images from this trip? Whew, that takes up some space.I am shifting stuff about and storing some on my seagate. Once I have it all sorted I will be back. Not to worry, my taxes are done the blog is the only thing nagging me at this point.

More Excuses

So, sorry for the delay…. recovery from the flights, spring break then I got sick. My mother would tell you I get sick every time I come back from a far off land. Easter with friends, TAXES…YUK!

I am shifting homes tomorrow.. I should have some time at the new place if I can get the internet to work. The week end is a bit jammed up but I have three days next week which should prove to be helpful with blog updating.It’s the  1st  thing I my “to do” list…honest!

Jumping Ahead

Quicklly, I will get you pics and stories soon from Eremenk, Karaman and the road between.

Today I landed in Goreme…this place is amazing, I have a pic to prove it..

Cap 1

I promise to get better pics tomorrow, the sun was going down and it was threatening to rain. People once upon a time lived inside these rock things. I am going on a tour with a guide tomorrow, will get the low down then.

Interlude

I just don’t have it in me tonight.

Six hours in a bus, I thought the two hour walk would help me out but dang the area where the computer works has a combination of Turkish Jazz far to loud and a TV with a Turkish TV program even louder….how to they think in this place?

My head is pounding and if the guy had not said dinner was included “Do you like fish?” I would have a showered and gone to bed. Damn its 6.15.

Apologies

So sorry, seems I was on a bit of a roll with the road trip pics, then I had to pack up all my toys to shift homes. One has to remember, when one shifts so much sooner or later one comes across a place or two where the computer,  were all the pics are stored,  will not work.

The connection here is intermittent, over the next several days I will fight it in hopes if being far closer to current with the blog.

Hang on just a few more days….

We are all caught up…woohoo! Man. I hope I never get that far behind again.

I am back on the island of Roatan. The 1st week I spent with Bob Marley and all their fuzzy friends. I am now living with Miss Gato whose parents went to Colorado to visit family and work in a bit of skiing.

It has been cold and raining/pouring off and on since I arrived. I was only in the pool at Bob Marley’s house once and that was just to see if I could talk myself into it. Rain water and no sunshine make for a very chilly pool.

Kitty and I have been updating both the blog and the web site. I still have several stories to write but at least all the photos I have with me are posted.

I shift to a new place Saturday. It is a new area for me,  should be fun to meet new people and hang out in a new place. The cabin  on a bit of iron shore, a point, with a huge ocean view and plenty of opportunity for sunset photos.

I will be here until March 19th when I go back to Colorado for Spring Break.

Kitty is batting the screen door, her code for “Door person, get up off  your hinnie and let me out.”

Holy Hannah!

I am so sorry! “The blog, The blog” got lost is the “Annette is back in Colorado having fun with her friends” state of mind. I was so over whelmed by the remainder of  the Ireland pics plus the Rockey Mountain National Park pics, never mind the drive back to Boulder County and the pics I took while driving with mom from Denver to Virgina.  Whew!!

Honest to goodness, the plan is to put big effort in to the blog over the next three weeks.

Currently…I am in Virgina house sitting with a couple cats. For the 1st  time I can remember I am close enough and have the interest to see Washington DC. So, one day this week I will act the tourist, collect my backpack loaded with maps and water, camera in hand to visit the nations capital. Wacky huh?

The plan at this point is to be in Colorado the 16th of Oct, stay through Feb 2nd. Hopping a plane for Roatan from Feb 3rd til May 2nd then….hmmm..then I am thinking I might wander Thailand May/June 2008.
