A Quick Peek At Steve’s Vacation.

Hello everyone from…almost, but not yet!  But I thought it was time for a brief look at my vacation paradise here in the almost tropics.  I have some spare time at the moment, mainly because I am worn out from all this walking around.  Now, back in Canada, we use cars.  Here people walk.  No matter how hot it is.

Land of a hundred fountains, all in one spot, this is only half.

Admittedly there are a lot of vehicles here too.  I don’t know where they are going with all those vehicles.  There is no place to park them.  Some streets are only wide enough for one vehicle, a small vehicle at that.  This is so different from what I know.  Kind of cool actually.  If I was raised in this place it would all be quite natural.  I know, I know.  Where am I, right?  I will let you know, but not today.  I know.  I’m terrible.  I won’t deny that.

A hotel behind the fountains. No, not the one I’m staying at.  Oddly, I haven’t taken a picture of this one yet.

My trip didn’t really have the best start.  The first part of my flight was good, very good and enjoyable.  The second part, which was by far the longest part of the flight, was very turbulent for 3 hours.  That finished me.  Airsick.  All night long.  So I arrived at my destination rather tired.  But, since it was my first day, I went ahead and did my best anyway.  However, day 2, or 3 really, I was finished and ended up doing not much of anything except sleeping.  After all, I walked about 550 km the previous day and I was tired.

Here, they carry boats of boats. Not sure why.

But my guide was tired as well.  That surprised me a bit.  Especially since she is used to all this walking around.  Today I was ready to go again though.  I thought.  It was definitely worth all the heat and pain.  I would do it again actually.  I would love to spend more time at that spot.  Just not right away.  I need to recover.  Vacations are meant to wear a person out, not really for relaxing.  Even though the two can be the same thing sometimes.  I am certainly glad for the decision to come here.  Especially since our winters are getting longer all the time back home.  This is a nice change.

This is the street where my hotel is located, but just not in the picture. I wanted to show the palm trees.  Real palm trees.  Which I have never seen before.

I do miss my Muffin however.  But she is doing well without me apparently.  Which is good.  I think she is keeping track of me over here.  It’s that new friend of hers that’s helping her out.  I just know they talk to each other.

Well, anyway, there we have the first 3 days.  I was going to include today as well, but I will maybe do that tomorrow, along with day 5.  I have a lot of pictures so far and will get even more yet.  That way I can keep some for using in the winter when it gets boring talking about, well, winter.  Sigh.  In case you are wondering, I am not on that cruise boat pictured above.

I hope you are all enjoying your week as well and God bless!

  1. I bet Muffin will miss you. Too bad you can’t share it with her. But I hope you’re having a great vacation Steve.

    I read the post twice but I really don’t see you mentioning where you are other than almost tropics. Haha 😀 Glad you finally see living palm trees!

    • It definitely would have been nice to bring Muffin but I don’t think she would have enjoyed the trip! She definitely is not a traveling kitty. That’s true, I didn’t mention the location yet, but right now we are close neighbors, country wise at least. The exact location is coming up soon.😁🌞🌴

    • Thanks for reading Eugenia, glad you liked the pics! I’m just kind of resting today though I was out most of the morning before it got too hot. Never though I would say that! Actually it’s not really the heat, it’s the humidity here that is hard, I’m not used to that part. Next post coming out soon.😁📷

      • Yes, the humidity is hard to get used to. I was born and raised in Florida and never got used to the humidity. Where I live now (north Georgia) is not too bad. Be to take water with you when you’re out in the heat. 🙂

      • Thanks Eugenia, yes, I discovered that water is a necessity to have all the time, so different than back home. Enjoy your day!😃🌞

    • Well, I guess that might have something to do with it for sure!!😂😂Hey, only once was twice! When I went out for lunch earlier I got knocked right off my feet by a young woman who came rolling past me! She was kind of big. I’m being polite there. At least it happened before I got my food. I see it’s going to be hotter next week.🌞🌞😁😁

  5. I am so glad you are having all this tiring fun Steve! Lovely photos of…lol.

    Be safe bro. Don’t over exert yourself. Oh what am I saying…you’re supposed to do that on vacation. That’s what they are for…to see & do things that your do not normally get the chance of doing or seeing. 🙂

  6. I finally get to read about your journey in… the French Riviera? Ok, sorry, I cheated a little. I googled the name of the hotel behind the fountains. Haha, I’m going to read part 2 and 3 now to confirm. Lol 😄
