About this blog

I want to keep a blog about our planned trip – how the planning goes, trials and tribulations, reports on what we’re doing and seeing when we get there. Thus…this blog.

Travel blogs seem to fall into two categories: day-by-day accounts of the blogger’s activities, or descriptions of interesting things. I like reading both, but this one will mostly be of the latter variety. I can’t imagine anyone wanting to read what we do each day, since there will certainly be a lot of days like this: “Went to Carrefour today. Bought groceries. Drove around the country-side and visited yet another small village.” We may like doing that, but who’s going to want to read that every day? I sure wouldn’t.

I’ll try to include some background, historical, cultural or otherwise, on the places we think readers will be interested in. You’ll learn something, and maybe that will shed some insights as to why we like what we write about.

If you wish to contact us, you can leave a comment on any post, or email us at: john@zumsteg.us or laurie@zumsteg.us.

    OMG–love the pics and comments!
    I do NOT know how you have the time for all the comments BUT they are priceless!
    In one of the photos, I thought I saw our Magnum standing outside? At least the dog was black (I could not see its head or full body). Maybe you need a wide angle lens?
    I am certain you have every type of lens made for your cameras.
    If we were there we would gain 20 lbs. during our visit eating all that cheese.
    How much of it are you able to bring back home, if any?
    It sure is a beautiful place, no wonder you both enjoy going there
    We miss you both!

      Linda,
      That dog is Jemma – a spaniel-type dog. She is inexhaustible, will chase a ball for hours, bringing it back to us and, if we ignore her, putting it in our lap until we finally relent and throw it again. We really like having her around, even if it’s us that wears out! I’ll post some pictures of her soon.
