14 Interesting Places to Visit in Morocco

Over two weeks we found a lot of interesting places to visit in Morocco, starting and ending in Casablanca. The “real trip” started in Marrakesh.

The coast north of Essaoui...

Getting Back to Nature in Virginia’s Blue Ridge

In recent years, I’ve made a concerted effort to explore more the U.S.; to discover those amazing spots that can be found throughout my country. Most recently, that meant a return to my oft-ignored home region – Virginia’s Blue Ridge. Not ignored by visitors, no they’ve discovered the magic of Southwestern Virginia by the thousands. No, it was ignored by me I’m sorry to say. Since I grew up there, I thought I knew what to expect, but over the course of a long weekend I realized that I was s...

Abandoned scenes from a faded Japanese hot spring resort

Japan’s mass tourism boom of the 1950s and 1960s, followed by the economic bubble a few decades later, were in many ways the making of the country’s numerous hot spring resorts. They also turned out to be their downfall. During the bubble years in particular, ever more, and ever bigger hotels changed the look and feel of such places, and worse, when the bubble finally burst, the inevitable drop in visitors meant there simply weren’t enough people to fill all those many-roomed monstrosities. Ad...

The Cure

I’m talking about a French treatment not the rock band. I’ve had arthritis for quite a while but when we were in Japan I really got a lot of pain in my hand. I’ve read that stress-which I had-can bring about an attack. Our tour guide lived in Thailand and had all sorts of meds which got me though the rest of our time there. When we got back I went to see a Rheumatologist who put me on an antiinflammatory telling me I could only take it two weeks a month. « What do I take the rest of the month? »...
