    Getting into Prague..

    Taking the train from Vienna to Prague was quite uneventful, of course travelling second class in the trains wasn’t the greatest thing in the world but we were comfortable. Now once you got into the Nadrazi Holesovice train station in Prague, we got hit with a bit of culture shock, since the station was run down with little tourist facilities. It …

    How could I forget Vienna sausages?

    Growing up in Trinidad, the only thing that Vienna would trigger would be memories of nitrite soaked Vienna Sausages. However, Vienna was/is one of the great European cultural sites, berthing numerous famous artists and composers whose works many of us recognize even today.  And although it served as a key battleground during many medieval wars, it was comparatively untouched by …

    Getting into Salzburg….

    The first big thing about Salzburg is that it is the birthplace of Mozart, and to people who live in Salzburg, this is a big thing! One would easily get this question wrong in Final Jeopardy. In my brain, it would go something like this: Alex Trebek: “What was the birthplace of this composer who wrote every piece of Well …

    Ohio to Toronto to Frankfurt

    Well long day coming in from Abercrombie and Fitch in Ohio. The whitest place in terms of people, I have ever seen. It is almost like a cult there, in that everyone wears the same clothing, they look the same, all the guys are thin and wear the T-shirts and shorts, the girls are all desperately thin in general and …

    Nights in Tortola…and maybe a nice commute…

For instance, while people in the Islands will complain about the work, the people and the slow pace of progress; there are some amazing things that one can take for granted i.e. A cool night breeze with the smell of the ocean Clear nights drinking good rum …

    The second best commute to work….

    As part of our working lives, we have to get to work in the mornings. Work is just a necessary fact of life, and as much as we complain about the whole thing, it does serve a very useful purpose in our lives. I think it is to give purpose and meaning as well as to give us something to …

    Nights and randoms in BVI

      Of course, no visit to the island would be without a visit for some rum shopping. I wonder how long the Pusser’s rum will last in my shelves.

    Touching down in Antigua

    So while getting heading back to Toronto from my trip in Trinidad, I had the opportunity to stop off in Antigua for two days. Lemme say that Antigua is a tiny little island that is more known to me for the the Antigua Recreation Ground (ARG), that very famous bowler’s graveyard that saw Brian Lara break the highest individual test …
