Time for Epcot

Time for Epcot

And now for Disney’s Epcot. What a grand time we had walking through Future World and the World Showcase, visiting the 11 different countries showcasing their culture and food (we ate bangers and mash with mushy peas from the UK Showcase and Bini has requested that mushy Peas be served more frequently at home), playing in the […]

Atlantis

Atlantis

If I had to name something that I never imagined ever seeing (let alone standing close enough to touch it) it would have to be the Space Shuttle Atlantis … but today we did! What a thrill. And the goosebumps and tingles that appeared as Atlantis was revealed were totally unexpected. This machine went into space many […]

Miami & Orlando

Miami & Orlando

We took a solo day today in Miami post conference. The big decision was what to do – sit by the pool or go downtown? It was a public holiday so that meant lots of things were closed but many open too – so it was a ride on the MetroRail and then the MonoRail downtown. […]

the British School

the British School

First school visit for this trip was to the British School. It was just a short session with the junior school and I was wonderfully introduced by Anoushka who just happens to be the school captain and with whom we spent time with on Sunday (see photo from two days ago). It was Anoushka who set […]

Tourists in New Delhi

Tourists in New Delhi

That is us today and we had a spectacular time with visits to Qutab Minor, Humayan’s Tomb and Jantar Mantar (and our driver also took a ‘short’ detour to a Himalayan gift shop to buy a pashmina or anything else in the store but we were soon rapidly walking out of there – much to the […]
