The answer is easy. Pull out one of our old battleships with huge 16″ guns (and many others) cruise right to the ports where the pirates hang and blast away until there is not one ship left. This is cheap and this is visually stunning and I’d love to be there. Imagine the poop that will come out of the pirates bottoms when they see this come in and start blasting!

I shall be in Birmingham Alabama for a meeting on February 18, 2011. That meeting will be on South Bridge Parkway so I may stay in that area or maybe someplace where there is stuff around. I will likely add some additional time to the trip and snoop around with my camera and my thirst. I also usually hit thrift stores and yard sales, though I assume the latter is out of season. Dates may be February 17th, 19th and 20th? I won’t know the precise dates until late January or early February. Can anyone recommend some unique places to see, to eat, to goof off and/or does anyone want to join me for same?

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
