Egypt Travel Photos

We are in Egypt!  We've reach the half way point on our adventure and we are still going strong.  The rooftop pool and restaurant have been very helpful in this regard.

I've started posting pictures and will post more as we see more cool stuff.

You can find the photos in my Egypt 2022-09 Google Photos album.

Welcome To The 2022 Autumnal Equinox!

Happy Fall everyone.  Autumn has always been my favorite season (I'm sure I've mentioned this before).  The crispness of the air, the color of the changing leaves.  I love the crunch-crunch of walking on paths covered in fallen leaves.

Some Fall colors along the Appalachian Trail.
I hope the Wife and I will go leaf peeping in New England some year.  I got a glimpse of the beauty near the end of my 2019 Appalachian Trail hike.  I would like to get a complete view someday.

Some more colors of Autumn.

Turkey Travel Photos

We are over half way through our Turkey tour so I probably should post a link to the pictures I've uploaded so far.  As of this post we have been to Istanbul and the Cappadocia region.  We are currently in Izmir and I will add photos as our adventures continue.

Hot air balloons over Cappadocia from ... A hot air balloon.

Israel Travel Photos

I really don't have the time or, at this time, the will to write a post so I will post a link to my photos from Israel.  I took a total of six hundred and four pictures with my two cameras (the Wife took a lot more with her phone).  I have posted a good sample of what we saw along the way in Israel.

A Note About Travel Posting

If things are working right, the Wife and I are winging it to Tel Aviv.  I know some of you may be hoping for posts while we are traveling the world.  In the past I have tried to draft posts while traveling and I have discovered that it is often stressful to have to write posts at the end of long days.  It makes me grumpy and I don't enjoy doing it at all.

There are several free days during our travels.  Mostly free days between countries. A day at the start in Tel Aviv.  Two days in Istanbul.  A day at the start and the end in Cairo.  Will I post during these free days?  I doubt it.  If the choice is sitting in my hotel room tapping out a post on my tablet or visiting some cool places within walking distance of our hotel, I would choose the 'visiting some cool places' every time.

I will document our travels in posts after we get home for sure.  And a quick "Yoo Hoo Hi There - we are here" post every few days is not out of the question but don't expect much.

I will also try to post some pictures along the way.  Again, this will be constrained by our free time, WIFI quality, and how tired I feel.
