From the Archives: Luxembourg

There are a lot of amazing places in the world.  I happen to love our own backyard, as Arizona has so much to offer.  But America is young compared to historic cities abroad that beam with history, architecture, and culture.  I yearn for walking the cobblestone streets of Europe in any number of quant charming cities that exude character at every turn.

This post takes me back to a trip in 2007 to Luxembourg.  I call these little segments of the past, From the Archives, but they feel like A Blast from the Past.

Luxembourg is a small country, surrounded by Belgium, France and Germany. It has a strong financial sector and beauty abounds.  It’s got both nature and medieval, yet modern at the same time.  It’s often overlooked, but shouldn’t be.

While I was in Luxembourg for business, it is definitely a place I would go back to just to explore and enjoy.

Grand Canyon: North Rim

Grand Canyon has been on my mind.  I wrote a blog about the exciting new publication of my friend, Dave’s new book, A Year in the Grand Canyon….  https://kritterspaw.com

It reminded me of our own trip with Dave to the Grand Canyon, and camping at Crazy Jug Point, so I thought I would reminisce and resurrect some of my favorite pix.

We were fortunate enough to benefit from Dave’s amazing knowledge of the Grand Canyon, as he shared his special spots with us and we chattered around the campfire.

It was a fantastic and memorable time.  Hey, Dave… We should do it again!  Can you fit us into your busy schedule?
