Hello my lovely readers 🙂 How’s everything going?

I don’t know if I have told you but I’m going to stay for the next two months in London. I absolutely love this city and I decided to make the most out of my Summer break as a teacher. So yesterday the centre of London was full of people because it was PRIDE. I saw the parade, went to the concerts… I had so much fun. So today I want to share with you the pictures that I took.

Heroes’ Square in Budapest

Living The Q Life

Heroes’ Square, or Hosok tere in Hungarian, is one of the main squares in Budapest and is located next to the city park. It was created in 1896 to commemorate the 1,000th anniversary of Hungary. Sitting in the middle of the square is the Millennium Monument and the Museum of Fine Arts and the Palace of Art sit on opposite sides of the square. At the time that Heroes’ Square was created, Hungary was still part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and some of the statues in the square today replaced those that paid tribute to the Austrian Hapsburg dynasty.

Roaming the Sahara

Endless Roaming

If you have been reading my website at endlessroaming.com
you would be aware that I have been blogging about previous adventures across
the USA, specifically 2012. Ill also write further about other experiences in
the USA and other countries. I am located in the UK at the moment attempting to
work out where to next so in the meantime I thought I’d continue to write about
Roaming around Morocco.

After three days in Marrakesh I felt it was time to leave the city, my destination the Sahara Desert. Id organised a tour through the Riad I was staying at; the tour involved a night in a hotel and the second in the Sahara itself. I hadn’t exactly researched what I would be up to, I just took the advice of the Riad manager that this was the “must do” tour in Morocco and for the…

Southwestern Flavors in Santa Fe

Living The Q Life

New Mexico is known for its chili peppers and the southwestern food that is made with them. We were only in Santa Fe for a couple of days, but that didn’t keep us from trying as many different options as we could. As a town, Santa Fe has a growing reputation for having a food scene with creative chefs and restaurants with interesting menus. We focused our attention on the historic downtown area, but there are excellent restaurants throughout Santa Fe.

Southwestern food is generally Mexican inspired food with an American flair. We had burritos filled with pork marinated in red chilis as well as Huevos Rancheros. We also had tempura battered green chilis as well as a delicious grilled corn and chipotle soup. Obviously there is more to the food in Santa Fe than just…

Enjoying the Food of the Southwest

Living The Q Life

Living in Colorado, we are surrounded by states that embrace southwestern flavors. Whether visiting New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, or our own state, southwestern flavors can be found everywhere. Tacos, burritos, Huevos rancheros, enchiladas, guacamole, and all kinds of peppers can be found on menus in almost every city. We have tried to recreate several of the dishes that we’ve had during our travels throughout the area as well as we have some of our own that we’ve grown up eating.

Southwestern food is full of spices and packed with flavor, but usually it is just a mild heat. Some places offer the choice of sauce to put over your food, usually ranging from mild to hot, with the green sauce usually being the hottest. One nice thing about southwestern food is…

The Shinto Shrine of Fushimi Inari-Taisha in Kyoto, Japan

Gate 1 Travel Blog

The incredible Fushimi Inari-Taisha is located in the southern part of Kyoto, Japan and is an important Shinto Shrine dedicated to Inari, the god of rice. The shrine sits at the bottom of Inari Mountain and contains 1,000 vermilon torii gates, as shown in the picture. While visiting the shrine, be on the look-out for fox statues, as they are said to be the messenger of the god Inari.

Venice Simplon-Orient-Express Adds 3 New Grand Suites for 2020

Track 25

Grand Suite Vienna_2020 New Vienna Grand Suite on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.

Three new Grand Suites will join the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express for the 2020 season, Belmond, the train operator, has just announced. This brings the total number of Grand Suites up to six.

The new Grand Suites — named Vienna, Prague, & Budapest, after three iconic European capitals to which the VSOEtravels every year — will reflect each city’s unique history and architectural style, while embracing the train’s Old World charm and meticulous attention to detail. They join the three existing Grand Suites, named Venice, Paris, & Istanbul.

I was the only advisor from the Western Hemisphere to inspect the first three Suites on their inaugural journey in April, 2018. Read my glowing reporting here and here — and see my video above for the grand reveal of Istanbul Grand Suite!

After seeing the Suites in person, I had a serious hunch that our travelers…

Morocco – Climbing Mount Toubkal – Part Two

Nickelinho's Travel Blog

The Refuge

The door creaked open and I stepped into the warmth of the refuge. We passed a lounge full of trekkers, reclining in their ski jackets and cracking wise. Pausing for a second, I gawked at them through the glass, my face contorted from the climb. Fragrant aromas wafted from enormous tagine pots that were spaced evenly along a cafeteria bench.

Continuing to the main lobby, Robert and I approached the reception desk and booked bunks for the night.

“Is there any food left?” I said.

The desk clerk continued counting the wad of bank notes I had handed him. He turned and placed them in the till, then pointed to the room opposite. “This is last service.”

The warmth I had felt coming in from the outdoors had now faded, and I began to shiver as I sat down at the empty dining table. Two grimy men were…
