Well, WC, congratulations on your state of granniness. I'm told that it's the same every time, but I can't speak from experience. Enjoy!

CK, I am still enjoying your travelogues immensely. A colleague just passed me a link you might enjoy:

Take care.

RodW : that is a neat link. Wasted (?) a fun half hour there.
Cap K should have several pithy sayings to contribute!

Yes, and in exactly the same way as residents of Lapland are called Lapdancers ...

And I would, if I had time, which I don't. We're tourists, not travellers, make no mistake about it. On this trip we have had five dates about which we had to be very clear over a period of two months. That's four too many for a real traveller.

Anyone can sleep in a car on an interstate. It takes real style to be able to sleep on Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah Valley.

Yuppie tourists like us have a slightly different set of skills.
We need to be able to identify a possible motel location, sight unseen, in a town we've never been to before we get there by correlating the addresses of known motels.

We need to be able to identify business loops by deduction on a 4 x 4 inset map of a city.

We're able to deduce the amount of activity in a town by the number of cars parked outside the local Super 8 motel and thereby determine what kind of room rate we can negotiate.

And on, and on.

We're tourists, not travellers

I know tourists, and Capital Kiwi, you're no tourist.
Tourists don't write fantastic journals, they usually just write "Wish you were here" on a skimpy postcard and go on their merry way.
