Favorite moments

… of travels past …

My recent trip to Denver, Colorado, took me from the transcendent architecture of the Denver Art Museum to Larimer Square. Okay, can I ooh and ahh enough about lunch at rioja..? Just a few doors down from where I’m standing here.


Heads up:

They call Denver the “Mile High City” for a reason.

My accommodation was situated at an altitude of 1,600 m and it took me (my head to be precise) about a day and a half to adjust.



From there it was smooth sailing. I even had some time and the opportunity to enjoy the people, vistas, food and climate here.

Happy travels everyone!

Hola, fellow friends and travelers,

How is life treating you these days? It seems everywhere I go, inspiration lurks. On a recent bus ride (yes, I like to be driven – but more on that in another post) I overheard this conversation between two seniors:

Senior 1 (after telling a few not so funny jokes to Senior 2): “Oh well, as a kid I used to annoy my grandmother with all my constant talking, too …”

Senior 2: grunts

Senior 1: “She used to say something to me, I still remember to this day. ‘Boy, she said, you have two ears and one mouth for a reason!”

Spot on, if you ask me, right?

Now you know reason no. 1, why I enjoy taking public transportation.

Travel on! Balu 405
