TESTING THIS BLURB APPLICATION FOR BOOK PREVIEWS. THIS ONE IS MY TRAVELS TO SPAIN IN OCTOBER 2007

This book was made shortly after we arrived home in late October 2007 and is chronologically organized covering all aspects of our trip beginning at our home with the stuff we packed. It goes through the airport and travel phases and finally into Spain. We arrived in Madrid in the morning dog tired from too many hours of travel and had to navigate using Spanish language signs through Madrid’s Barajas Airport to the rail line to the subway and then to the high-speed train from Madrid to Toledo where we have booked our first night.

The photos will show how tired we were. All through the rail portion of the first day, we were totally beat and on edge. Once we arrived in Toledo and checked in, we had been up close to 24 hours. We decided to stay up until 9 PM so we could sync up with the local time. We ended up wondering around the streets of the old city for hours, climbing and descending the steep stone streets before finally ending up at a restaurant & bar across the street from our hotel. We ate jamon and drank Spanish beer and wine until we collapsed into our room at 9 pm. There was an open air ‘rock’ concert in the Plaza de Toros which reverberated around the city that night and actually helped us fall asleep with the cool breeze falling into the bedroom from the ancient open window of our room above the stone courtyard of the hotel and apartments. Enjoy if this www.blurb.com widget works well enough.

This book was preliminary and I am looking to re-publish with tighter editing. Cheers, Yarbz

OLD JUGGERNUTS SITE

FYI TO ALL JUGGHEADS: I have requested a copy of the old program that ran the ‘Old Jugg’ site. If this works, we may have full access to the old blog dating back to September 2003 which should include comments and ‘more’ sections. I will need help once I get the program so volunteers are needed. I know Trench is smart enough but I think he is very busy. Feste knows somebody who may be able to help. I will have to host the old site separately so we’ll have to see how it goes. I would really like to have to old stuff up again as there were some classic posts with pics and stories that should not be lost to history.

Stay tuned

OKAY, so it’s Sunday Morning, I’ve got my coffee, some music playing, and I decide to take a spin around the web. Just your basic news sites, nothing out of the ordinary, at least, not until I stumbled upon this:

THREE FROM SPAIN

Lost is some small Spanish town… This was my first experience on these types of roads and it was challenging. Luckily, no cars came the other way…

SPAIN SPAIN SPAIN SPAIN…

Kids in Ceceras messin’ with the birds while locals and tourists eat at a cafe on the square. The bird later got angry and ate his head off. I was out of camera memory though…

This is on our side trip from Seville as we did back roads to Portugal. The Red River and an old broken bridge. We hiked about for around 30 minutes before continuing our journey…
