Belgium: Brussels – Historical Centre

February 22, 2019 7:05am
The city of Brussels in Belgium is at the very heart of Europe. It is the seat of the European Parliament. By and large it is a typically modern European city but at it's heart there are some wonderful reminders of it's early ancestry, at the center of which is the spectacular Grand Place. Brussels is certainly a place where you can spend a couple of fun days exploring.

Alaska: Seward – Dog sledding during the summer season

February 18, 2019 6:24am
After spending the previous day at sea we decided to focus our last few days in Steward on terra firma. Since arriving in Alaska and Emily finding out about the existence of kennels for dog sledding huskies that were open to the public, we had been pressurized into visiting one of these establishments. Luckily enough one such place existed close to Seward. Despite this being summer and the snow being long gone this tour also promised us a sled ride – how could we turn down this opportunity

Minnesota: Walnut Grove – Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum

February 7, 2019 7:25am
The name of Walnut Grove is synonymous with the "Little House On The Prairie" TV series, although the Ingalls only lived there on two occasions for a total of four years. The actual show was not filmed on location in South Dakota, they preferred the warmer climate of California (and who can blame them!)

Colorado: Keensburg- Wild Animal Sanctuary – a rescue centre for big cats and bears

February 5, 2019 6:29am
The Colorado Wildlife Conservation Sanctuary is a fascinating place. It is not a zoo but is a rescue centre for exotic animals, rescued from small zoos and private owners who have abused their animals or simply were unable to look after them.

Alaska: A day cruise to see Northwestern Fjord – whales, sea otters and retreating glaciers

February 1, 2019 5:53pm
The plan was to take a 9 ½ boat trip from Seward up the Northwestern Fjord, some 70 odd miles down the coast. The overcast weather put some doubt in our mind on this endeavor, but we had already bought the tickets, so were committed to the trip.

Alaska: Anchorage – Alaska Native Heritage Center

February 1, 2019 7:46am
On our arrival in Anchorage our hopes were raised by some warm summer sun, but when we awoke on morning of our second day the weather has changed for the worst, it was both cold and damp. Mind you we never expected this to be a beach type holiday. We had come to Alaska prepared, so we layered up and set off to the Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchorage.
