Hello, Summer Vacations!!!

Hello, Summer Vacations :)

To begin with, I'd like to thank all of you for sharing your thoughts on the tribute to Anne Frank. She has and will continue to inspire this world with her optimism and wisdom. There's this line in the Czech movie, "Divided we fall" (Set in Czech during WWII times and Czech's 2000 contender for best foreign film at Oscars) that lingers long after the movie is done with "You wouldn't believe what abnormal times do to normal people". Guess, if extra-ordinary circumstances bring out the worst in some, they bring out the best in most unlikely of us. That's humankind for you :)

On an upbeat note, I am off for a mini summer vacation. Have a friend down from across the Atlantic so we get to show him the southern most point of United States...yes, we are off to Key West via Miami. Hoping to bring some Cuban flavor to the blog from the trip. Thereafter, we leave for an Indo-Irish wedding in Mid-west and from there up to the Mackinac Islands in Upper Peninsula, Michigan. That's a lot of flavors that I intend to capture while on vacation, eh!!! But then that's the beauty of living in a nation as diverse as America. As TS Eliot once remarked, "Through my travels I have grown tremendously". I wish to learn all that textbooks could not teach moi, by following my wanderlust. And partly helping the dream is that my tax returns for the last year are safely in my checking account now. Have Money, Will Travel ;)

Will miss out on being your blogs for a short while but will catch up the minute I get back....such is the addiction to blogging ;)

An Indo-Irish wedding in Mid-west? That's a good name for a book or movie...
Enjoy your vacations and return soon!

it reminds of my uncle and his girl friend. they were plain back pack travelers. They work for 8 months and glob trek for 4 months or as long as their money lasts. Then if it requires, they get a new job and used to repeat this for many years together.

Lucky you! The holiday programme sounds beautiful. I particularly envy the visit to the Conch Republic, though the season is probably not the best. Anyhow, I would love to go back, and look forward to seeing your wonderful pictures. Enjoy...

Thanks for your visits to Villigen Switzerland.

Love the colors. I like to take my camera into stores with me. Sometimes things there just beg to be photographed.
